Well-suited for use both as an advanced textbook and a professional reference, this second part of the bestselling Geotechnical Engineering has been fully updated. In addition to covering foundation fundamentals, it also explores the latest developments in the design of drilled piers and mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls, as well as a pioneering approach for predicting the nonlinear behavior of laterally loaded long vertical and batter piles. It also discusses considerations specific to both shallow and deep foundations, examines caisson foundations in great detail, and covers sheet pile structures, cantilever walls, and anchored bulkheads. Included is a computer program for solving stability of slopes.
While this volume focuses on structures, the first volume, Principles and Practices of Soil Mechanics,focuses on soil mechanics, fully discussing load and stress factors, seepage and permeability, as well as shear strength and compressibility. It covers all the laws and formulas and required tests required in geotechnical enginnering.
While both volumes stand on their own, together they provide the most complete resource available on geotechnical engineering
