This work draws together current understanding of the origins and formation processes of tills, the landsystems that they create and in which they are found, their distribution within the UK glacial stratigraphy, and how they are classified. The book then links this geological background to the engineering and classification of tills, giving the typical ranges of their properties. Guidance for engineering in tills covers site investigation, earthworks, shallow and piled foundations, dewatering, tunnelling and landslides. Supported by 14 case studies and numerous figures and tables, a substantial reference list, glossary and index, this comprehensive publication provides a practical review of the geology and geotechnics of tills and guidance for engineering practice. It will be of particular relevance to geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, civil and structural engineers, and tunnelling and highway engineers.
