Geotechnical Engineering Applied Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering Volume 1 Book Excerpt:

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.

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.

The Mechanics of Soils and Foundations Second Edition Book Excerpt:

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.

Soil Mechanics and Foundations Book Excerpt:

The study of rock and soil as construction and load bearing material goes hand in hand with the background knowledge of the geological process of formation and the environmental effects on such formations. Soil is the combination of rock, mineral fragments, organic matter, water and air. It is mostly made up of grains of rock and humus. The type of soil depends on the mix of humus and on the size of the grains of the rock. Soils are the oldest and the most used building materials. Soil mechanics and foundations engineering covers that how to solve certain fundamental problems related to consolidation, shear strength, and design of shallow and deep foundations; and familiarizes students with relevant terms and soil tests so that they can work effectively with geotechnical engineering specialists. Soil Mechanics and Foundations emphasizes on the basic concepts and principles of soil mechanics and foundations in the context of basic mechanics, physics, and mathematics. Soil Mechanics and Foundation is reference tool for engineers, scientific researchers, and construction and design specialists with the up-to-date achievements in soil mechanics theory, experimental investigations, geotechnical and foundation engineering problems and innovative solutions, design and construction practice in regions with steady and exciting soil conditions.

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.
