Download Geology For Civil Engineers By A.C. McLean and C.D. Gribble – The impulse to write this book stemmed from a course of geology given by us to engineering undergraduates at the University of Glasgow. The course has changed, and we hope improved, during the twenty years since one of us was first involved with it. It was essentially a scaled-down version of an introductory course to science undergraduates; it is now radically different both in content and in the mode of teaching it. Our main thought, as we gradually reshaped it, was to meet the special interests and professional needs of budding civil engineers. It is a matter for serious debate as to whether time should be found within an engineering course for classes of a broad cultural nature. Our experience in teaching indicates that the relevance of subject matter to the vocation of those taught usually increases their interest and enthusiasm. Furthermore, in engineering curricula which are being crowded by new and professionally useful topics, we doubt whether a place would have been found for a general course on geology which discussed, for example, the evolution of the vertebrates or the genetic relationship of the various basic plutonic rocks. On the other side of the scale, we have firm beliefs that educated men and women should be aware of the Theory of Natural Selection and its support from the fossil record, and should be aware of other major scientific concepts such as plate tectonics. We have found some space for both of these in our book. Other apparent digressions from what is obviously relevant may serve a professional purpose. For example, civil engineers must have an insight into how geologists reach conclusions in making a geological map, in order to evaluate the finished map. Similarly, they should appreciate how and why geologists differentiate between (say) gabbro and diorite, not because these differences are important for most engineering purposes but so that they can read a geological report sensibly and with the ability to sift the relevant from the irrelevant information.

Our course and this book are essentially an introduction to geology for civil engineers, which is adequate for the needs of their later careers, and on which further courses of engineering geology, soil mechanics or rock mechanics can be based. They are not conceived as a course and text on engineering geology. We have, however, extended the scope of the book beyond what is geology in the strict sense to include engineering applications of geology. This is partly to demonstrate the relevance of geology to engineering, and partly in the expectation that the book, with its appendices, will also serve as a useful handbook of facts and methods for qualified engineers and other professionals who use geology. The reactions of the majority of those who reviewed our first draft reassured us that our ideas were not peculiar to ourselves, and that we were not the zvx only teachers of geology who felt the need for a textbook tailored to them. Other views ranged from a preference for altering the book to make it a comprehensive account of the whole of geology largely devoid of material on engineering, to a preference for a more radical change along the lines we were following, which would have produced an introductory text in engineering geology rather than geology. The balance of opinion seemed reasonably close to our own prescription, though we are grateful for the many constructive suggestions that have led to major changes of content and arrangement as well as minor amendments. If we have not ended at the centre of the many opinions that colleagues and friends have kindly given us, it is because at the end of the day we have special interests and views ourselves, and it is our book. We hope that you will find it useful and readable._ stated by the Authors of this book.
