    A book containing both theory of geomaterial testing and up-to-date testing methods is much in demand for obtaining reliable and accurate test results. This book is intended primarily to serve this need and aims at the clear explanation, in adequate depth, of the fundamental principles, requirements and procedures of soil and rock tests. The organization and presentation of the soils report is highly important. The report must be well-organized and must be presented in a logical and concise format with emphasis on technical conclusions. For further discussion and a suggested outline for a soils report, you should refer to Materials Testing, NAVFAC MO

    5-Step Testing Procedure to Determine if Soil Conditions are Corrosive to Cast Iron Soil Pipe 1. Soil Resistivity: The soil scientist must analyze the soil for resistivity at the given trench depth in order for the results to be considered accurate. There are several factors which may skew the results. A.P. Mallarino, in Encyclopedia of Soils in the Environment, Introduction. Soil testing is an important diagnostic tool for determining the nutrient needs of plants and for environmental assessments. Some soils are inherently deficient in plant nutrients. Other soils had sufficient levels of nutrients in the past, but removal with crop harvest has depleted the reserves.

    Soil Testing Manual: Procedures, Classification Data, and Sampling Practices Filled with handy tables, charts, diagrams, and formulas, this reader-friendly guide gives authoritative solutions and simplifies each step of every process, from selecting appropriate methods to analyzing your results.
