Engineering Geology And Rock Mechanics by Dr. B. P. Verma
Book Summary:

Present book deals with "Engineering Geology and Rock Mechanics". Geology is a Science dealing with study of Earth as a whole and Engineering Geology deals with application of geology in Civil Engineering practice. Thus it can be said that geology applied to relevant aspects of Civil Engineering practice is engineering geology. In Civil Engineering practice of all major projects, the geology of the site and its effect on engineering structures are properly evaluated and taken into consideration in the design for both economy and safely. The success or failure of and engineering project depends largely upon physical conditions obtained by geology and work of a civil engineer is based on those information. Hence knowledge of engineering geology is crucial to obtain information about potential geology problems of a project and to identity their proper solutions.
