Books Name: Calibration of Laboratory Soils Testing Equipment

Author/Writer: US Army Corps.

Soil is one of the major element in civil engineering design considerations. As soil keep the total loads imposed on it, so it is mandatory to test soil before any foundation to be placed on. To test the quality of soil to take certain loads and pressures various equipments are necessary and calibration of these machinaries are also important. Without calibration machinaries would give faulty data, resulting in fault in design.

This manual helps the soil laboratory engineers to calibrate electrical machinaries and get actual data through proper testing.
