PRINCIPLES OF SOIL DYNAMICS is an unparalleled reference book designed for an introductory course on Soil Dynamics. Authors Braja M. Das, best selling authority on Geotechnical Engineering, and Ramana V. Gunturi, Dean of the Civil Engineering Department at the India Institute of Technology in New Delhi, present a well revised update of this already well established text. The primary focus of the book is on the applications of soil dynamics and not on the underlying principles. The material covered includes the fundamentals of soil dynamics, dynamic soil properties, foundation vibration, soil liquefaction, pile foundation and slope stability.
