    Book details

Ideal for undergraduates of geotechnical engineering for civil engineers, this established textbook sets out the basic theories of soil mechanics in a clear and straightforward way; combining both classical and critical state theories and giving students a good grounding in the subject which will last right through into a career as a geotechnical engineer.

The subject is broken down into discrete topics which are presented in a series of short, focused chapters with clear and accessible text that develops from the purely theoretical to discussing practical applications. Soil behaviour is described by relatively simple equations with clear parameters while a number of worked examples and simple experimental demonstrations are included to illustrate the principles involved and aid reader understanding.

Review Text

  • By greg.makusa on 3 March 2011

    The book provide the fundamental basics of soil mechanics and foundation. It is written in simple engineering language and thus very easy to understand. Life examples are used to demonstrate/explain some difficult mechanism...e.g Undrained and consolidation is explain with example of packet of crisp

    Useful book on soil mechanics, recommend to anyone doing a geotechnics/ soil mechanics course, well written.Ordered on the British Amazon, book was delivered from Germany and was an Indian edition. But otherwise same content

    This is certainly an excellent book on the fundamentals of soil mechanics.
