Engineering geology can be defined as an application of geology that is used to practice engineering. In simple words, it is related to geological factors that influence the location, design, construction, and other maintenance of the work. It also draws certain geological disciplines such as sedimentology, hydrogeology, and many others.
Here, this book is dedicated to engineering geology and is for every student who is just going to set his/her foot in this particular field. Along with that, people who share a great interest in the subject can also learn from it. However, it is not just aimed at one factor but many such as mineralogy, petrology, structural geology, etc. So, those who want to know or are interested in making a move in this field are supposed to know about it. Some background knowledge is also added to provide the readers who pursue the subject matter with great depth. It also talks about the importance of the topic for civil engineers and why they should enhance it. The text is equally revised so that the readers can have an easy learning experience and knowledge about it in detail. A self-assessment question along with a glossary is also added for help.
