Geotechnical, Rock and Water Digital Library

The Geotechnical, Rock & Water (GROW) Digital Library has been created by the University of Arizona, with support from the National Science Foundation, and aims to be part of the National Civil Engineering Resource Library, currently under development in the US. GROW aims to provide learning resources for students, academics and engineering professionals, and the emphasis is free online access. A number of publications have been posted online from various authors including Clayton’s Site investigation (1995), and Schofield and Wroth’s Critical state soil mechanics (1968),  as well as documents from Arup, USACE, university academic staff, and so on. There are virtual demonstrations of tests, video footage, and much more.

Resources are divided into 3 subject categories, geotechnical engineering, rock engineering and water resources. Note that some resources are aimed at secondary educational level, as well as undergraduate and research levels, and for the interactive resources, it may be necessary to run and download software from the site.
