Description: For undergraduate courses in Civil Engineering Technology and Civil Technology, Environmental Engineering, Construction Management, Architectural Engineering and all other applications-oriented engineering courses in Soil Mechanics/Foundations, Soils Engineering, and Geotechnical Engineering. Written by an experienced professor/practitioner, this popular introductory book provides coverage on a broad range of state-of-the-art geotechnics material accepted and used by today's engineering professionals. Easy to understand and loaded with illustrative examples, it explores everything from the most basic of concepts to the latest developments, giving students a real-life working knowledge of soil mechanics and foundations. The philosophy and logic of soils and foundations is discussed in practical terms to enhance understanding, and a presentation of design charts, tables, and equationsutilized by today's practitionersencompasses not just the nuts and bolts, but explicit instructions and applications as well.
