Description: For introductory courses in Soils and Foundations or Soil Mechanics in civil engineering technology or construction technology and architecture departments. Designed for those students who will probably not be taking further courses in soil mechanics and foundations, this text uses only simple mathematics and emphasizes applications to explore the nature of soils and how they can influence certain construction operations. A comprehensive appendix of laboratory testing exercises provides hands-on practice of basic principles and procedures.
