Geotechnical (or soil) engineering is a major consideration in virtually all civil engineering planning, analysis, design, and construction. The demands made on geotechnical engineers have steadily increased because structures have become larger and loads heavier; marginal construction sites that previously were avoided are now used; engineers must work around, 'alongside', and even under existing structures; and engineers must attend to energy and environmental needs. SOIL ENGINEERING presents the material in the simplest possible language as well, it leads the reader through appropriate phases of the basic sciences of geology, pedology, soil physics, and physical chemistry.
