Synopsis: Based on the expertise of a distinguished team of soil and foundation engineers, this handbook is the most complete and authoritative reference on the construction and repair of structural foundations available anywhere. It provides exclusive coverage of site development, structural failures, and foundation repair for residential and light commercial buildings, as well as for high-rise buildings and other types of heavy construction. Practical examples help clarify in-depth discussions of soil mechanics; stress distribution and settlement; bearing capacity of shallow foundations, piers, and piles; concrete mix properties; and earth pressure and retaining systems. The book also addresses important legal and insurance concerns.

From the Back Cover: Dig into real solutions with this groundbreaking, problem-solving guide. Based on the expertise of a distinguished team of soil and foundation engineers, this expanded and updated Handbook clarifies and simplifies every part of the job, from site assessment through design, and construction, to remediation of failed foundations. A matchless solver of difficult problems, the Handbook offers proven, expert design alternatives for even substandard soil and challenging site conditions, with example problems for any type of structure.

Experts Lead You Through Standard and Advanced Methods for Every Type of Foundation Engineering

The Handbook gives you not only important how-to's, but equally vital how-not-to's that prevent costly damage to structures and professional reputations. Handy illustrations, charts, tables, and case-study examples ease your work. You also get full coverage of failure analysis and repairs--for dealing with the errors made by those who didn't use this book. With Practical Foundation Engineering Handbook and its math-minimizing strategies, you're ready to tackle any structural foundation project with confidence, efficiency, and the most comprehensive, up-to-date methods available anywhere.
