The topic of site characterization is unique to geotechnical engineering and owes its significance directly to the variability of the natural geologic deposits on the earth’s surface. Proper site characterization requires an understanding of various field and laboratory investigation methods. The book discusses the suitability of various methods under different site conditions and presents the procedures to derive design parameters based on interpretation of test results.

Ali Albassami and Andrew Patton McCoy

Businesses, consumers, industry groups, and governments understand the importance of innovation for continued economic success and improvements in quality of life. However, innovation remains an opaque topic. A paradox exists in the construction industry at-large; using innovation is vital yet challenges the value to individual organizations. This paradox is supported by a landscape that includes a sizeable graveyard of failed attempts at innovation on grand and small scales.
