Now Eurocode compliant - in line with the compulsory new design codes brought in across the EU and increasingly adopted worldwide. In Soil Mechanics, Barnes clearly sets out the principles of soil behaviour and shows how engineers have applied these solutions in practice, making this an accessible, highly readable and yet comprehensive textbook for core courses in civil and ground engineering, and a handy resource book for practitioners. This fully revised third edition: is now Eurocode compliant, with a new chapter on the geotechnical Eurocodes features worked examples incorporating the Eurocode limit state design principles, allowing readers to use the new codes confidently includes a range of case studies that demonstrate key problems and how engineers have tackled them uses clear diagrams throughout to illustrate key aspects of soil mechanics and photographs to enhance understanding The solutions manual can be found at www.Palgrave.com/engineering/barnes/solutions
