Managing Urban Stormwater: Soils and construction - Volume 1 4th edition. These guidelines, commonly known as the 'Blue Book', provide support for councils and industry to reduce the impacts of land disturbance activities on waterways by better management of soil erosion and sediment control. This book uses only simple mathematics and emphasizes applications to explore the nature of soils and how they can influence certain construction operations. An introduction to soil materials is followed by a discussion of soils in the construction contract/5(2). v Agriculture Handbook Ponds—Planning, Design, Construction Tables Table 1 Runoff curve numbers for urban areas 14 Table 2 Runoff curve numbers for agricultural lands 15 Table 3 Runoff curve numbers for other agricultural lands 16 Table 4 Runoff curve numbers for arid and semiarid rangelands 17 Table 5 Runoff depth, in inches 18 Table 6 I a values for runoff curve numbers 21File Size: 1MB. Soils in Construction. Sixth Edition Many photos illustrate the concepts and applications of soils and geotechnical structures throughout the book. An appendix detailing lab procedures allow the book to serve those courses with a lab component while still maintaining flexibility for those without.

Soil Types for Construction Including soils with high sand and/or gravel content, granular soils are generally suitable for building, considering that they are still penetrable by water upon compaction. The installation of a containment wall may be necessary to prevent shifting. Particle size is important in the consideration of granular soils.   Uses only simple mathematics and an emphasis on applications to explore the nature of soils and how various soil materials may influence certain construction operations. An appendix of 11 laboratory testing exercises provides hands-on practice with basic principles and procedures. Contains Price: $
