    Default Civil Drafting Textbook

    I am working on a Civil Drafting school project that requires a "cut and fill" discipline. My school textbook cover the subject in three very vague paragraphs three drawings. None of which make any sense.

    Can someone suggest the name of a textbook I can locate online?
    I've got nothing to say!

    You might try this text book, very reasonably priced too!

    In my area of Sou. Calif. each county and each city has their own set of "Standards" and the format is noted therein. A standard textbook is therefore considered, but not adopted. Within the Soils Report for the job or project (required by Sacto to be done) is an explaination as to what formulae is to be used for work on the site.

    The Soils Report may be vague (often common around here) too in that it does not note as to where retaining walls are to be constructed nor their footing designs. In turn you are expected to refer to yet another book for formulae for earthworking.

    A small item you will not regret.

    The textbook will come in handy, time and time again.
