This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' manual, ""Construction with Large Stone"", provides guidance on effective and economical selection, evaluation, and use of large-stone materials in construction. The scope of this manual has been made broad, ranging through subjects as diverse as geology and technically based construction contracting. Chapter 2 reviews the wide spectrum of engineering applications of large stone, while Chapter 3 reviews potential problems in using large stone. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 explain good practice in evaluating materials and sources of materials. Finally, Chapters 7 and 8 summarize pertinent aspects of contracts and construction. In addition, this manual also serves as a supplement to guidance on engineering design of large-stone features and structures.
