Description

The document provides a method of soil and rock description that reduces the subjective nature and variability of descriptions of materials encountered during the investigation, design and construction of an engineering project. As such, the method is designed principally for use in the field where materials are described, and descriptions are recorded on logs.  It provides methodology for the description of materials such that:

• All significant observable properties of soil and rock are described;

• Descriptions of a material consistently use the same terms; and

• Particular properties or groups of properties appear in the same relative position within any description, so that the user may rapidly locate them.
