Authoritative, state-of-the-art guidance to soil strength and slope-stability analysis
Through clear, concise language and practical examples, Soil Strength and Slope Stability describes state of the art methods for evaluating soil strength, and for analysis, design and stabilization of slopes in soil. The principles of limit equilibrium analysis, and appropriate use of computer programs are emphasized. Methods are described for checking the results of complex analyses, and for presenting results of slope stability analyses clearly. These are illustrated through many examples.
Written by two recognized experts in the field, Soil Strength and Slope Stability features:
Visually informative with more than 250 illustrations, Soil Strength and Slope Stability is a complete and practical resource for geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists, civil engineers, geologists, environmental engineers, and students.
