Geotechnical Engineering: Principles and Practices

Donald P. Coduto ... 800 pages - Publisher: Prentice Hall; 1st edition (July, 1998) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0135763800 - ISBN-13: 978-0135763803 ...

Rigorous and technically deep -- yet accessible -- this up-to-date introduction to geotechnical engineering explores both the principles of soil mechanics and their application to engineering practice -- emphasizing the role of geotechnical engineering in real design projects. An accompanying CD provides supplementary software developed specifically for learning purposes -- e.g., SETTRATE. Discusses site exploration and characterization; soil composition; soil classification; excavation, grading, and compacted fill; groundwater -- fundamentals and applications; stress; compressibility and settlement; rate of consolidation; strength; stability of earth slope; dams and levees; lateral earth pressures and retaining walls; structural foundations; difficult soils; soil improvement; and geotechnical earthquake engineering. Makes extensive use of photographs and example problems. For geotechnical engineers, soils engineers, ground engineers, structural engineers, and civil engineers.

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
