Title: Geology Applied to Engineering: ABSTRACT

Author(s): F. A. Nickell

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Engineering geology from an obscure beginning achieved most of its growth in the period of unprecedented construction chiefly during the past 15 years. The responsibility and points of interest of the engineering geologist are distinct in some respects from those in the better known fields of applied geology. However, basic considerations and methods of interpretation differ only in adaptation and emphasis. A few major projects of national importance illustrate typical problems.
