Covers test methods for soil and rock, sampling, nomenclature and practices relating to the determination of properties and behavior of soil and rock for engineering purposes and for soil as a medium for plant growth. (Ulrichsweb)
Contains papers on topics such as foundations, retaining structures, soil dynamics, engineering behavior of soil and rock, site characterization, slope stability, dams, rock engineering, groundwater monitoring and restoration, and coastal and geotechnical ocean engineering. (Ulrichsweb)
The CFEM is designed to be a resource to practicing geotechnical engineers and geoscientists as a guideline to practice, and to be consistent as much as possible with the current National Building Code of Canada and the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code. This Manual represents a "must-have" resource for geo-practitioners in Canada as well as a valuable design resource for geo-practitioners elsewhere around the world.
