Soils, rocks and concrete are the principal materials a civil engineer encounters in practice. This book deals with the material analogies, their implications in property characterization, giving attention to similar as well as dissimilar methods in respect of each of these three materials. It provides an integrated, systematic approach for realistic assessment of engineering properties of soils, rocks and concrete. Geotechnical engineers, civil engineers and materials scientists will be interested in this volume.Identical portable readout units may be used in conjunction with pneumatic / hydraulic piezometers. 11.2.3 ... The measurement of either the water level or water pressure in the container unit will determine the pore water pressure at the location of the piezometer. Water level ... Schematic details of a pressuremeter. Fig.
