I’m headed for a little vacation with the family, so no updates for the next week or so. When I get back, don’t miss a review of the first geotechnical iPhone/iPad app, a revamped Facebook page, and some thoughts on the upcoming ER2010 conference in Seattle where you can expect plenty of GeoPrac.net coverage. Adios! (Image: Slack12)
I can’t believe it’s that time of year again. Here are the top 100 geotechnical engineering, geological engineering, engineering geology and geoconstruction articles posted in 2010! As I have mentioned before, I don’t like to rank based purely on the number of hits since it biases content that has been published for longer. Instead, I normalize to hits per day. As a bonus, I threw in the top 100 of all time based purely on hits. Without further ado…
Last month there were several updates to standards involving texting the flexural strength of concrete as well as updates to some masonry and dimension stone standards. ASTM D6926 – Standard Practice for Preparation of Bituminous Specimens Using Marshall Apparatus has been updated, so if you are involved in asphalt pavement testing, make sure you go and find out what the changes are. There are also a whole slew of groundwater and site investigation standards that were reapproved.
