Infrastructures and buildings are built on a material that is heterogeneous in nature and whose propertiesare imposed by its origin: the ground. Soil or rock, the ground plays an important role in the cost and viabilityof any infrastructures and buildings during both their construction and their operation. Thus, knowing theground and properly characterizing it, stands essential. This Book deals with the geotechnical engineeringtechniques and methods used to carry out a useful and successful study of the ground. Beginning by layingthe foundations for a good geotechnical planning, which must be supported on the use of appropriategeological-geotechnical cartography,the Book shows the different techniques for terrain recognition andauscultation, addresses the geotechnical description of rock masses and summarizes the more commonlaboratory tests used in soils and rocks. All this based on the recommendations and principles given inrelevant technical documentation such as the "Guía de Cimentaciones en Obras de Carretera" of Spainand the recommendations of the International Society for Rock Mechanics (ISMR).
