Smith s Elements of Soil Mechanics Book Excerpt:

Smith’s Elements of Soil Mechanics The revised 10th edition of the core textbook on soil mechanics The revised and updated edition of Smith’s Elements of Soil Mechanics continues to offer a core undergraduate textbook on soil mechanics. The author, a noted expert in geotechnical engineering, reviews all aspects of soil mechanics and provides a detailed explanation of how to use both the current and the next versions of Eurocode 7 for geotechnical design. Comprehensive in scope, the book includes accessible explanations, helpful illustrations, and worked examples and covers a wide range of topics including slope stability, retaining walls and shallow and deep foundations. The text is updated throughout to include additional material and more worked examples that clearly illustrate the processes for performing testing and design to the new European standards. In addition, the book’s accessible format provides the information needed to understand how to use the first and second generations of Eurocode 7 for geotechnical design. The second generation of this key design code has seen a major revision and the author explains the new methodology well, and has provided many worked examples to illustrate the design procedures. The new edition also contains a new chapter on constitutive modeling in geomechanics and updated information on the strength of soils, highway design and laboratory and field testing. This important text: Includes updated content throughout with a new chapter on constitutive modeling Provides explanation on geotechnical design to the new version of Eurocode 7 Presents enhanced information on laboratory and field testing and the new approach to pavement foundation design Provides learning outcomes, real-life examples, and self-learning exercises within each chapter Offers a companion website with downloadable video tutorials, animations, spreadsheets and additional teaching materials Written for students of civil engineering and geotechnical engineering, Smith’s Elements of Soil Mechanics, 10th Edition covers the fundamental changes in the ethos of geotechnical design advocated in the Eurocode 7.

Smith s Elements of Soil Mechanics Book Excerpt:

This core undergraduate textbook for civil engineers is the first to cover the fundamental changes in the ethos of geotechnical design advocated in the now published Eurocode 7. This code will be fully adopted across Europe by 2010 and its implementation will mean a radical shift to limit state design. Ian Smith makes understanding this new approach to geotechnical design less daunting to the student with clear explanatory text, detailed illustrations and several worked examples, covering a range of topics including slope stability, retaining walls and shallow and deep foundations. Downloadable spreadsheets help to illustrate how the new Eurocode is applied and the book's website also gives the worked solutions to self-test questions at the end of each chapter. Now in its 8th edition, this well-established textbook has been updated and re-designed with improved page layout and illustrations making it the essential user-friendly introduction to soil mechanics and geotechnical design to Eurocode 7.

Elements of Soil Mechanics Book Excerpt:

Now in its 7th edition, this well established book provides undergraduate degree and HND students of civil engineering with a core text on the theory and treatments of soil mechanics. The fundamental principles of the subject are explained clearly and logically and their use in practical applications is well illustrated. The book also features a wide range of worked examples and problems that aid student-centred learning. The main features of the 7th edition are the new sections describing limit state design and unsaturated soils. These two topics have been included to reflect the recent changes in practice in these two subject areas. New worked examples have been provided to help guide the reader through the new design approaches endorsed through the limit state design methods set out in the new geotechnical codes, and an up-to-date appraisal is given of the problems of unsaturated soil. An introduction, for the first time, to practical geotechnical design using limit state theory, together with new worked examples. An outline of the changes introduced by the draft European Geotechnical Design Code, Eurocode 7. A revised section on unsaturated soils. New material in a number of areas including soil nailing, highway design, and in situ moisture content determination. Extensive number of worked examples. Larger format with improved illustrations.
