Summary
"Soil is a material that has been formed through the influence of many different natural agencies. The engineer is not so much interested in how the soil was formed, but he does want to know the characteristics of the soil with respect to its use as a structural material. Therefore, the engineer is primarily interested in the physical properties of soils. Much progress has been made during the past twenty five years in the study of Soil Mechanics, but even today there is a tendency among engineers to think of soil as just a mixture of clay, sand, silt and gravel. In designing a structure, if soil is one of the principal building materials or serves as the structure's base, the designer can prepare better plans, reduce the initial construction effort and make maintenance easier, by a knowledge of the physical properties of the soil. It is generally believed that soils have five basic physical characteristics: Internal friction, cohesion, compressibility, elasticity, and capillarity. This paper is concerned directly with finding a simple method of determining the capillarity of a soil"--Preface, page iii
