With the introduction of China's high-speed railway to the world, the successful experience in comprehensive consideration of civil engineering and geological conditions have been achieved, which is worthy of learning and reference for international students. This is the purpose of this book.
The structure of the textbook follows a clear line from basic knowledge about engineering geology to engineering geological problems and prevention, and then to engineering geological survey. In addition to describing the relationship between geology, engineering geology and civil engineering geology in the introduction to Geology Applied to Civil Engineering, the main contents of this book include overview of the Earth, minerals and rocks, stratum and geological structures, geological role of water, engineering properties of rocks, rock weathering and soil properties, earthquakes, geological hazards and mitigation measures, geological problems in tunnel, foundation and slope engineering, geological investigation for civil engineering.
In addition to the systematic theoretical knowledge, each chapter also includes the prologue to stimulate students' interest in learning, examples to deepen students' understandin8 of key and difficult knowledge, and exercises for after-class review.
This book is closely linked with practice, adopts new standards and specifications in the field of engineering geology and geotechnical engineering, and reflects the new achievements and progress of civil engineering geology.
This book can be used as a textbook for undergraduate students major in civil engineering, surveying and mapping engineering, environmental engineering in colleges and universities, as well as a teaching material or reference book for water conservancy engineering, mining engineering and other related majors. It can also be used as a reference for engineering technicians of related areas.
