The geotechnical engineer needs to be aware of the advantages and problems of different tests for sites with different geological conditions. Interpreting the results of penetration tests is an essentially empirical activity and as such the engineer is required to understand standard equipment and procedures. This book provides crucial information about all these considerations and is a valuable textbook of current theory and practice.
