Soil Survey Interpretations for Engineering Purposes1

  1. Olaf Stokstad2

Abstract

Abstract

This short paper attempts to provide the background for the common interests shared by pedologists and engineers. Some engineering attitudes toward soils are discussed and a soil scientist's approach to soil engineering problems is suggested. The paper further describes the nature of a productive cooperation between pedologist and engineer and discusses the obligations of each in order that their efforts may best serve engineering needs.
