Engineering in glacial tills (C504)

Engineering in glacial tills draws together current understanding of the origins and formation processes of tills, the land systems that they create and in which they are found, their distribution within the UK glacial stratigraphy, and how they are classified. The book then links this geological background to the engineering and classification of tills, giving the typical ranges of their properties. Guidance for engineering in... Details

The reclaimed and recycled construction materials handbook (C513)

Some materials such as crushed concrete have been recycled for many years, but they have generally featured in low-grade applications, such as fill and site access roads. Although there are substantial economic, as well as environmental, benefits to be gained from increasing utilisation of reclaimed and recycled materials, attempts to bring them into higher-grade usage have been hampered by lack of...
