This book is mainly intended to meet the needs of undergraduate students of Civil Engineering. In preparing the first edition of this book, I had two principal aims: firstly to provide the student with a description of soil behavior-and of the effects of the clay minerals and the soil water on such behavior-which was rather more detailed than is usual in an elementary text, and secondly to encourage him to look critically at the traditional methods of analysis and design. The latter point is important, since all such methods require certain simplifying assumptions without which no solution is generally possible. Serious errors in design are seldom the result of failure to understand the methods as such. They more usually arise from a failure to study and understand the geology of the site, or from attempts to apply analytical methods to problems for which the implicit assumptions make them unsuitable. In the design of foundations and earth structures, more than in most branches of engineering, the engineer must be continually exercising his judgment in making decisions. The analytical methods cannot relieve him of this responsibility but properly used, they should ensure that his judgment is based on sound knowledge and not on blind intuition. I hope that the book will prove to be of use to students when their courses are over, and help to bridge the awkward gap between theory and practice.

Soil Mechanics and Foundations 3rd Edition presents the basic concepts and principles of soil mechanics and foundations in the context of basic mechanics, physics, and mathematics. It is appropriate for a single course combining introduction to soil mechanics and foundations, or for a two-course geotechnical engineering sequence. The author presents topics thoroughly and systematically without diluting technical rigor, and gives students confidence in learning the principles of soil mechanics and its application to foundation analysis by clearly defining what they should learn from this text, and providing tools to help them organize and assess their own learning. Soil Mechanics and Foundations 3rd Edition supports active learning and student self-assessment by defining learning outcomes and objectives, providing questions to guide their reading, definitions of key terms, multimedia supporting self-assessment, and homework exercises defined to target theory, problem-solving, and practical applications. Web-based applications available with the text include interactive animations, interactive problem solving, interactive step-by-step examples, virtual soils laboratory,e-quizzes,and more! The text is written using 100% SI Units.

This text/CD package combines the fundamentals of geotechnical engineering with an interactive multimedia CD to enhance learning and retention. Readers will learn to understand the physical and mechanical properties of soils; determine parameters from soil testing to characterize soil properties, soil strength, and soil deformations; and to apply the principles of Soil Mechanics to analyze and design simple geotechnical systems. Critical state soil mechanics is included. The CD contains multimedia interactive animations of the essential concepts of soil mechanics and foundations, interactive visualization of mathematical models (e.g. consolidation, critical state models, etc.), virtual laboratories (students can conduct soil tests, interpret the results and apply the results to practical situations using 3-D simulated apparatus; these labs are independent of time and location, the students conduct all the procedures as if he/she were in a real laboratory, and can explore "what-if" situations), digital videos, a glossary, notation, quizzes, notepads, interactive problem solving, spreadsheet links and computer program utilities.

A must have reference for any engineer involved with foundations, piers, and retaining walls, this remarkably comprehensive volume illustrates soil characteristic concepts with examples that detail a wealth of practical considerations, It covers the latest developments in the design of drilled pier foundations and mechanically stabilized earth retaining wall and explores a pioneering approach for predicting the nonlinear behavior of laterally loaded long vertical and batter piles. As complete and authoritative as any volume on the subject, it discusses soil formation, index properties, and classification; soil permeability, seepage, and the effect of water on stress conditions; stresses due to surface loads; soil compressibility and consolidation; and shear strength characteristics of soils. While this book is a valuable teaching text for advanced students, it is one that the practicing engineer will continually be taking off the shelf long after school lets out. Just the quick reference it affords to a huge range of tests and the appendices filled with essential data, makes it an essential addition to an civil engineering library.

Soils are the most common and complex type of construction material. Virtually all structures are either built with soil (e.g., earth dams and embankments), in soil (e.g., tunnels and underground storage facilities), or on soil (e.g., building foundations and roads). Soil conditions and load combinations are unique to each site. To be able to predict soil behavior under the anticipated loading conditions, the mechanics of soils should be well understood, and their specific properties evaluated. The project design should also take into consideration the environmental, social, and economic factors. The five-volume book series delivers a comprehensive coverage of topics in geotechnical engineering practice. The unique design of the text allows the user to look up a topic of interest and be able to find, in most cases, the related information all on the same sheet with related figures and tables, eliminating the need for figure and table referral numbers. In a way, each page is a capsule of information on its own, yet, related to the subject covered in that chapter. The topics covered in all five volumes will assist the reader with becoming a licensed professional engineer (PE) and a licensed geotechnical engineer (GE). Volume 1 contains chapters 1 through 7, which provides the user with a practical guide on the fundamentals of soil mechanics, including: Natural Soil Deposits, Soil Composition and Properties, Soil Improvement, Soil Water, Soil Stresses, Soil Compressibility and Settlement, and Shear Strength of Soil. Example problems follow the topic they cover. Several practice problems are included at the end of each chapter with the answers provided. It also contains the necessary forms, tables, and graphing papers for the state-of-the-practice laboratory experiments in soil mechanics.
