Soil Mechanics Laboratory Manual

Download Soil Mechanics Laboratory Manual By Braja M. Das – Soil Mechanics Laboratory Manual covers the essential properties of soils and their behavior under stress and strain and provides clear, step-by-step explanations for conducting typical soil tests. This market-leading text also offers careful explanations of laboratory procedures in order to help reduce errors and improve safety. Written by acclaimed author Braja M. Das, Dean Emeritus of Engineering at California State University, Sacramento, this manual also provides a detailed discussion of the AASHTO Classification System and the Unified Soil Classification System.

New to this Edition

  • Provides the associated ASTM standard at the beginning of the introductory section of each laboratory test
  • Adds the liquid limit test-fall cone method (Ch. 7); there is no ASTM standard for this test, so the British standard is given
  • Adds tests on the maximum and minimum densities of granular soil (Ch. 12)
  • Places the constant head and falling head permeability tests after the Proctor compaction test, as Chs. 13 and 14
  • Covers the consolidation test after the unconfined compression test, as Ch. 17
  • Adds several new photographs and figures
  • Properly identifies the location for recording test readings/measurements in the prescribed table(s)
  • Adds a brief description about the fundamentals of SI units to Ch. 1, “Laboratory Test and Preparation of Report”
  • Presents a more detailed description of U.S. sieve sizes and a list of commonly used British sieve sizes in Ch. 4, “Sieve Analysis”
  • Modifies Table 5-4 for data recording and other calculations to record test temperature for each reading (except for those cases in which a constant temperature bath is not used)
  • Adds a discussion on the plasticity chart and its uses in soil classification to Ch. 8, “Plastic Limit Test”
