This practical handbook of properties for soils and rock contains, in a concise tabular format, the key issues relevant to geotechnical investigations, assessments and designs in common practice. In addition, there are brief notes on the application of the tables. These data tables are compiled for experienced geotechnical professionals who require a reference document to access key information. There is an extensive database of correlations for different applications. The book should provide a useful bridge between soil and rock mechanics theory and its application to practical engineering solutions. The initial chapters deal with the planning of the geotechnical investigation, the classification of the soil and rock properties and some of the more used testing is then covered. Later chapters show the reliability and correlations that are used to convert that data in the interpretative and assessment phase of the project. The final chapters apply some of these concepts to geotechnical design. This book is intended primarily for practicing geotechnical engineers working in investigation, assessment and design, but should provide a useful supplement for postgraduate courses.

This book is a compilation of selected papers from the 1st Indo-China Research Series in Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering held in May 2020 online. The webinar series was held at a time of COVID-19 pandemic, when there is lack of physical connectivity. The cutting-edge research topics in Civil and Environmental Engineering ranging from bio-geotechnology, methane gas hydrates, frozen soils, rock testing, and related high-rise buildings response under wind loading will be covered. The contents make valuable contributions to academic researchers and engineers in the industry and provide a platform for demonstrating joint research between scientists from India and China. These are the first proceedings of its kind to demonstrate and motivate more joint research cooperation in Civil and Environmental Engineering between two countries. It was done mainly to motivate youth research scholars to understand each other and develop long-term cooperation.
