A logical, integrated and comprehensive coverage of both introductory and advanced topics in soil mechanics in an easy-to-understand style. Emphasis is placed on presenting fundamental behaviour before more advanced topics are introduced. The use of S.I. units throughout, and frequent references to current international codes of practice and refereed research papers, make the contents universally applicable.
Written with the university student in mind and packed full of pedagogical features, this book provides an integrated and comprehensive coverage of both introductory and advanced topics in soil mechanics. It includes:
- worked examples to elucidate the technical content and facilitate self-learning
- a convenient structure (the book is divided into sections), enabling it to be used throughout second, third and fourth year undergraduate courses
- universally applicable contents through the use of SI units throughout, frequent references to current international codes of practice and refereed research papers
- new and advanced topics that extend beyond those in standard undergraduate courses.
The perfect textbook for a range of courses on soils mechanics and also a very valuable resource for practising professional engineers.
