EltonDownload Here 3 / 5 Elton has done it again! Exploding soils Retaining walls made of paper Gravity defying sand!Grounded! Amazing Classroom Demonstrations in Soil Mechanics presents 35 serious butentertaining experiments that teach the fundamentals of soil mechanics to budding scientists andengineering students in an exciting and novel way. In this sequel to the popular Soils Magic, Eltonhas assembled a wealth of fascinating new experiments to illustrate the dynamics of how soilsbehave and how they can be manipulated. Topics include: slaking, pile capacity, swelling clays,shear and compression, effective stress, capillary tension and flow, soil arching, tensile andcompressive strength, soil identification, piping, liquefaction, relative density, soil filters, settlementrates, and many more. Each demonstration includes easy-to-follow directions, illustrations, and anexplanation of the engineering significance or application of the principle demonstrated. Videos ofmany experiments are also available. An exciting tool for high-school and college instructors, theinexpensive and simple experiments in this book make soil mechanics fun to learn and arefascinating to even the casual science enthusiast.Find the Full PDF Here 4 / 5 Can Download the PDF Here by TCPDF ( 5 / 5
