Launch of "Introduction to Geology & Soil Mechanics" Book by Prof. Chaidir Makarim, Raynaldo and Alvin
This book is composed of 314 pages consisting of 7 Chapters, where Chapter 1 contains the introduction, CHAPTER 2 describes the Geology, CHAPTER 3 describes the Land Investigation, CHAPTER 4 describes the Seepage, Chapter 5 describes the Voltage of Land, Chapter 6 on Consolidation, Chapter 7 explains about Slope Stability.
as a standard textbook then the quotations in this book are taken from international geotechnical textbooks that are widely used in Indonesia as well as schools outside Indonesia including the outstanding and accessible on the internet. additional real cases in Indonesia are taken from the author's experience for more than 30 years ebrkiprah in the geotechnical world of Indonesia. the aim is to explain the anther correlation of the theory with practice where often one sample of soil can not precisely represent a layer. while soil changes may occur as a result of their interaction with the ongoing nature.
