Certain engineering disciplines like civil and mining engineering need to take into account many geological factors while planning a project. So, geology is an important part of the syllabus for these disciplines. Geology is a vital field of study for any engineering discipline that involves interaction with the earth's structure. Engineering studies like mining and civil engineering will also necessitate a good knowledge of geology. Another aspect of geology that is extremely important is the study of the effects of the natural forces on the earth's surface.
This book, Engineering And General Geology For B.E (Civil, Mining, Metallurgy) B. Sc (Pass) And A.M.I.E, covers many of the topics of the syllabus. This includes study of the various features of soil and rock and the study of minerals.
This book begins with an introduction to the subject. It then covers topics like The Earth, Geological Work of Water, Hypsographic Features, Geological Work of Natural Agencies, and Structural Features of Rocks.
It also goes into topics like Stratigraphy of India, Earthquakes, Economic Mineral Deposits, Soils, Engineering Properties of Rocks, Geological Investigations, Mass Movements, Improvement of Sites, Tunnels and Road Cuts, Groundwater, and Dams and Reservoirs.
Engineers need to understand the land surface they are building on, the impact of earthquakes and soil erosion. They need to understand the landforms and the earth's interaction with them to study how they will affect any man-made structures built on them.
This book, Engineering And General Geology For B.E (Civil, Mining, Metallurgy) B. Sc (Pass) And A.M.I.E, provides a concise overview of the fundamental knowledge of geology required by engineers and is written in a lucid language.
