This text is rewritten throughout in line with Eurocode 7, with reference to other international standards, restructured into two major sections dealing with the basic concepts and theories in soil mechanics and the application of these concepts within geotechnical engineering design. New topics include limit analysis techniques, in-situ testing, and foundation systems.
There is additional material on seepage, soil stiffness, the critical state concept, and foundation design. Enhanced pedagogy includes a comprehensive glossary, learning outcomes, summaries, and visual examples of real-life engineering equipment. All figures from the book are available for instructors to download with useful weblinks, directing you to a host of further online resources on each topic.
There is an extensive companion website comprising innovative spreadsheet tools for tackling complex problems, digital datasets to accompany worked examples and problems, password-protected solutions manual for lecturers covering the end-of-chapter problems, weblinks, extended case studies, and more.
