    Chapter 5 Engineering Properties of Soil and Rock Overview The purpose of this chapter is to identify, either by reference or explicitly herein, appropriate methods of soil and rock property assessment, and how to use that soil and rock property data to establish the final soil and rock parameters to be used for geotechnical design.   engineering properties of rock [email protected] 4 the density of these rocks increases with age, and porosity is reduced. Important sedimentary rocks: Following are some important sedimentary rocks Sandstones vary from thinly laminated micaceous types to very thickly bedded varieties. They may be cross-bedded and are invariably jointed.

    Soil description Table. Guidance abstracted from BS giving all the terms needed for a soil description in the right word order and with their definitions. Any practitioner logging in the field should be using this table or similar. The description and classification of igneous rocks in the field are covered in detail in Chapter 3, and this is an excellent section, which is sure to be widely used by those getting to grips with igneous rocks in the field. The main schemes for naming igneous rocks on the basis of mineralogy and grain size are all covered in this section.

    CHAPTER 6 Engineering Properties of Soil and Rock NYSDOT Geotechnical Page J Design Manual METHODS OF DETERMINING SOIL AND ROCK PROPERTIES Subsurface soil or rock properties are generally determined using one or more of the following methods: • in-situ testing during the field exploration program. empirical analysis, field observations, and engineering judgment should be employed to determine the engineering properties of rock masses, with appropriate emphasis placed on visual observations and quantitative descriptions of the rock mass.
