9780415561266: Craig's Soil Mechanics, Eighth Edition

Now in its eighth edition, this bestselling text continues to blend clarity of explanation with depth of coverage to present students with the fundamental principles of soil mechanics. From the foundations of the subject through to its application in practice, Craig’s Soil Mechanics provides an indispensable companion to undergraduate courses and beyond.

New to this edition:

  • 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
  • Additional material on seepage, soil stiffness, the critical state concept, and foundation design
  • Enhanced pedagogy including a comprehensive glossary, learning outcomes, summaries, and visual examples of real-life engineering equipment

Also new to this edition is an extensive companion website comprising innovative spreadsheet tools for tackling complex problems, digital datasets to accompany worked examples and problems, a password-protected solutions manual for lecturers covering the end-of-chapter problems, weblinks, extended case studies, and more.

Review:

"The reviewer considers that Dr Knappett, in revising this classic textbook, has made a substantial additional contribution to the years of service given by Dr Craig to the civil engineering profession, in general, and the geotechnical community in particular."
―Catherine O’Sullivan, Imperial College, London, UK

"Jonathan Knappett is breathing a fresh lease of life into this old favourite with several new slants, including for the first time the design philosophy of Eurocode 7 and much new material...I propose to keep it on our list of ‘must consult’ textbooks."
―Edward Bromhead, Kingston University, UK

"Buying a copy of Craig as an undergraduate is a lifetime career investment."
―Geoffrey Blight, Witwatersrand University, South Africa

"All the background needed for those engaged in geotechnical engineering practice, foundation engineering and construction can be found in this book."
―Fred Boadu, Duke University, USA

"As a professor and civil engineering professional, I found this 8th edition of Craig’s Soil Mechanics to be everything a beginning engineering student is looking for in an introductory textbook on soil mechanics... I would highly recommend this as one of the finest textbooks on the topic of soil mechanics."
―Gregory Ohrn, Northern Arizona University, USA

"This valuable textbook is highly recommended to students, engineers, and educators in the field of geotechnical engineering."
Mehrdad Razavi, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, USA
