Description

The compaction guide to greater profits, less hassle. Boost your bottom line with the expert, efficient soil compaction techniques and technological solutions in this fully updated Second Edition. This revision will provide the contractor, fill inspector, and geotechnical engineer with greater coverage of environmental topics, including.
* Septic system site investigation, evaluation, design, and construction, plus existing system renovation, repair, maintenance, and management
* The latest uses of artificial fills from around the world--foam plastics, Elastizell, Geocell, Solite, and waste materials like shredded tires and wood chips
* New material and helpful case studies on the correlation of Standard and Modified Proctor densities and a method for determining numerical values of bearing capacities for Proctor densities
In addition to the current state of the art of fill technology, basic insights into soil behavior are provided. Innovative and patented methods of design are presented, especially valuable for young practitioners and those responsible for their supervision and continuing education. Reviewed as "conversational," "humorous," "full of wisdom," and "practical," this unusually readable resource is a profit-maker no construction professional can afford to do without.
