Outlines of the Presentation 1.What is Engineering Geology? 2.Role of Geology in Civil Engineering 3.Building Stones 4.Characteristics of Building Stones 5.Use of Building Stones 6.Types of Building Stones 7.Stone Finish Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 2
  3. 3. What is Engineering Geology Engineering geology is the application of geological data, techniques and principles to the study of rock and soil surficial materials, and ground water. This is essential for the proper location, planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of engineering structures. Engineering geology complements environmental geology, or hydrogeology. Civil engineers design structures that are built on or in the ground. As such an understanding of how the ground behaves is fundamental to civil engineering design. Earth materials can pose significant problems that need to be predicted, planned and designed for. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 3
  4. 4. Role of Geology in Civil Engineering Geology is applicable in:  Foundation engineering - assessment of soil conditions  Construction materials engineering - quality of stones, lime, cement etc.  Infrastructure engineering - location of bridges, tunnels, river meandering zones  Disaster mitigation - seismic resistant structural design, flood control, river training, waterway of bridges  Land-use engineering - soil erosion control, natural drainage  Water Resources engineering - hydrogeology (reservoir capacity for e.g.), source and quality of aquifer and water, desilting of reservoirs and navigation channels  Environmental engineering - ecological balance, solid waste management by landfill  Economical design in advanced Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 4
  5. 5. Role of Geology in Civil Engineering A Civil Engineer should be able to address the following issues. – Where to site a civil engineering facility or industrial plant being geological secure and economically feasible. – How to avoid unfavourable geological conditions. – How to design foundations under acceptable geological and geotechnical conditions. – How to excavate a slope to be stable and economically feasible. – How to excavate a tunnel or underground facility to be stable. – Availability of geological materials to built dams, embankments, roads, etc. – Ground treatments to prevent or correct seepages, subsidence, settlements, landslides. – Under what geological conditions and materials can be stored toxic, urban or radioactive wastes. – How to control, prevent or mitigate geological hazards (earthquakes, landslides, etc.) – What geologic and geotechnical criteria must be taken into account in land use and urban planning and to mitigate environmental impacts.

  6. 6. Building Stones Building stone is rock that is used in the construction of buildings, retaining walls, bridges, and other structures and includes building components such as walls, foundations, sills, chimneys, and steps. The most desirable building stones have a combination of strength; durability; beauty; and ease of quarrying, cutting, and carving. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 6
  7. 7. Characteristics of Building Stones To qualify as a construction material, stone should have the following qualities: Strength Most types of stone have more than adequate compressive strength. The shear strength of stone, however, is usually about 1/10 of its compressive strength. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 7
  8. 8. Characteristics of Building Stones Hardness Hardness is important when stone is used for flooring, paving, and stair treads. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 8
  9. 9. Characteristics of Building Stones Hardness Talc, easily scratched with the thumb-nail: 1 Gypsum, scratched by the thumb-nail: 2 Calcite, not scratched by thumb-nail but easily cut by knife: 3 Fluorite, can be cut by knife with greater difficulty than calcite: 4 Apatite, can be cut only with difficulty by knife: 5 Orthoclase, can be cut w/ knife w/ great difficulty on thin edges: 6 Quartz, not scratched by steel, scratches glass: 7 Topaz: 8 Sapphire: 9 Diamond: 10 Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 9
  10. 10. Characteristics of Building Stones Durability Exfoliation, hydration, slaking, solution, oxidation & abrasion all lower rock quality. Resistance to the weathering effects of rain, wind, heat, and frost action is necessary for exterior stonework. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 10
  11. 11. Characteristics of Building Stones Workability A stone’s hardness and grain texture must allow it to be quarried, cut and shaped. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 11
  12. 12. Characteristics of Building Stones Density Rocks exhibit a greater range in density than soils. Knowledge of the rock density is important to engineering practice. A concrete aggregate with higher than average density can mean a smaller volume of concrete required for a gravity retaining wall or dam. It is expressed as weight per unit volume. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 12
  13. 13. Characteristics of Building Stones Porosity A stone’s porosity affects its ability to withstand frost action and staining. Porosity is expressed in percentage as the ratio of volume of voids to the total volume. Typical values for sandstones are around 15%. In Igneous and Metamorphic rocks, a large proportion of the pore space (usually < 1-2%) occurs as planar “fissures”. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 13
  14. 14. Characteristics of Building Stones Permeability As well as the degree of interconnection between pores / fissures, its variation with change in normal stress assesses the degree of fissuring of a rock. Dense rocks like granite, basalt, schist and crystalline limestone possess very low permeability as lab specimens, but field tests can show significant permeability due to open joints and fractures. 24-hours Water Absorption of Stones by Volume Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 14
  15. 15. Characteristics of Building Stones Appearance Appearance factors include color, grain, and texture. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 15

  20. 20. Use of Building Stones  Crushed Stone Crushed stone is used as aggregate in concrete products, typically produced by mining a suitable rock deposit and breaking the removed rock down to the desired size using crushers. Courtesy: Dr. Irshad AhmadEngg. Geology & Seismology (CE-312) Instructor: Engr. Muhammad Adeel Arshad 20
