FOUNDATION ENGINEERING Book Excerpt:

Foundation Engineering is of prime importance to undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil engineering as well as to practising engineers. For, there is no construction - be it buildings (government, commercial and residential), bridges, highways, or dams - that does not draw from the principles and application of this subject. Unlike many textbooks on Geotechnical Engineering that deal with both Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, this text gives an exclusive treatment and an indepth analysis of Foundation Engineering. What distinguishes the text is that it not merely equips the students with the necessary knowledge for the course and examination, but provides a solid foundation for further practice in their profession later. In addition, as the book is based on the Codes prescribed by the Bureau of Indian Standards, students of Indian universities will find it particularly useful. The author is specialized in both Soil Mechanics and Structural Engineering; he studied Soil Mechanics under the guidance of Prof. Terzaghi and Prof. Casagrande of Harvard University - the pioneers of the subject. Similarly, he studied Structural Engineering under Prof. A.L.L. Baker of Imperial College, London, the pioneer of Limit State Design. These specializations coupled with over 50 years of teaching experience of the author make this text authoritative and exhaustive. Intended as a text for undergraduate (Civil Engineering) and postgraduate (Geotechnical Engineering and Structural Engineering) students, the book would also be found highly useful to practising engineers and young academics teaching the course.

Foundation Engineering Handbook Book Excerpt:

More than ten years have passed since the first edition was published. During that period there have been a substantial number of changes in geotechnical engineering, especially in the applications of foundation engineering. As the world population increases, more land is needed and many soil deposits previously deemed unsuitable for residential housing or other construction projects are now being used. Such areas include problematic soil regions, mining subsidence areas, and sanitary landfills. To overcome the problems associated with these natural or man-made soil deposits, new and improved methods of analysis, design, and implementation are needed in foundation construction. As society develops and living standards rise, tall buildings, transportation facilities, and industrial complexes are increasingly being built. Because of the heavy design loads and the complicated environments, the traditional design concepts, construction materials, methods, and equipment also need improvement. Further, recent energy and material shortages have caused additional burdens on the engineering profession and brought about the need to seek alternative or cost-saving methods for foundation design and construction.

Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering Book Excerpt:

★ABOUT THE BOOK: Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering (Geo technical Engineering) is a fast developing branch of Civil Engineering and its study is essential for the successful execution and maintenance of several civil engineering works. The subject of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering forms a part of the curriculum for the students of Civil Engineering. A good text book for the subject is therefore necessary to facilitate proper comprehension of the subject by the students. There are several books available on the subject Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, but the author feels that each of the available books is lacking in one respect or the other. As such none of the available books on the subject is complete in all respects. The author has therefore made an earnest attempt to bring out a book on the subject which may be reckoned as a complete text book in all respects. The text of the book has been divided in two Parts. The Part I deals with the Fundamental Principles of Soil Mechanics. The Part II deals with the Earth Retaining Structures and Foundation Engineering. The subject matter has been presented in a simple unambiguous language which is easy to comprehend. The book covers the syllabus of this subject prescribed by the most of the Indian Universities for the undergraduate courses. ★OUTSTANDING FEATURES : The text has been divided into 2 parts:- (i) Fundamental principles of soil mechanics (ii) Earth retaining Structures & Foundation Engg. The text has been supported by-: (i) Illustrative Examples. (ii) Multiple Choice Ques. (Provided in Appendix) (iii) Competitive Examination Ques. Fo -Eng. Services, Indian Civil Service & those preparing for AMIE examinations ★RECOMMENDATIONS: Degree, Diploma and A.I.M.E. (India) Students and Practicing Civil Engineers ★ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Dr. P.N.

Theoretical Foundation Engineering Book Excerpt:

Theoretical Foundation Engineering provides up-to-date, state-of-the-art reviews of the existing literature on lateral earth pressure, sheet pile walls, ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations, holding capacity of plate and helical anchors in sand and clay, and slope stability analysis. The discussion of the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations is the most comprehensive presentation on the subject to be found anywhere, and the review of earth anchors is unique to this book. In addition, each chapter includes several topics which have never appeared in any other book. The treatment is primarily theoretical and does not in any way compete with existing foundation design books. This is the only textbook of its kind. Not only will it be welcomed by teachers and first-year graduate students of geotechnical engineering, but it will be a useful reference for graduate students and consultants in the the field, as well as being a valuable addition to any civil engineering library.

Geotechnical Engineering Book Excerpt:

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.

Geotechnical Engineering Book Excerpt:

This book discusses contemporary issues related to soil mechanics and foundation engineering in earthworks, which are critical components in construction projects and often require detailed management techniques and unique solutions to address failures and implement remedial measures. The geotechnical engineering community continues to improve the classical testing techniques for measuring critical properties of soils and rocks, including stress wave-based non-destructive testing methods as well as methods used to improve shallow and deep foundation design. To minimize failure during construction, contemporary issues and related data may reveal useful lessons to improve project management and minimize economic losses. This book focuses on these aspects using appropriate methods in a rather simple manner. It also touches upon many interesting topics in soil mechanics and modern geotechnical engineering practice such as geotechnical earthquake engineering, principals in foundation design, slope stability analysis, modeling in geomechanics, offshore geotechnics, and geotechnical engineering perspective in the preservation of historical buildings and archeological sites. A total of seven chapters are included in the book.
