Questions about the Earth continue to haunt engineers. For instance: What do we know about our ancient planet? How should we be using it? And what are the best technologies and strategies to sustain us?
Earth Engineering provides the background necessary to analyze these questions as well as perspectives, principles, and practices to guide your understanding of geoengineering problems. Scientists, engineers, regulators, designers, constructors, educators and students will find this book especially useful when considering challenges tied to civil engineering, construction, and mining. Written in simple language, this reference guide covers many areas, including
• how the Earth began and developed over 4.6 billion years ago;
• how to avoid bad decisions during site investigation, planning and design;
• how to cope with subsurface conditions and challenges;
• how to handle being called as an expert witness in court;
• how to analyze and approach problems on all sorts of terrain.
You will treasure this broad collection and overview of geoengineering perspectives, principles, and practices. Round out your knowledge and troubleshoot common problems with the knowledge, tools, and strategies you will find in Earth Engineering.
