While there are many textbooks on the market that cover geotechnical engineering basics, Geotechnical Engineering is unique in that it is the only textbook available that is rooted within the three phase unsaturated soil mechanics framework. Written by world-renowned, award-winning geotechnical engineering expert Dr. Jean-Louis Briaud, this Second Edition offers the most comprehensive coverage of geotechnical engineering topics on the market, from theory to real-world application.

In addition to many updates and revisions, a major chapter has been added, covering 22 geo-engineering case histories. They are: Washington Monument (shallow mat foundation) + Rissa Landslide (slope stability) + Seattle 46 M-High MSE Wall (retaining wall) + The New Orleans Charity Hospital Foundation (deep foundation) + The Eurotunnel Linking France and England (tunnel) + The Teton Dam (earth dam erosion) + The Woodrow Wilson Bridge (bridge scour) + San Jacinto Monument (shallow mat foundation) + Pointe du Hoc Cliffs (rock erosion) + The Tower of PISA (shallow foundation) + The Transcona Silo (shallow foundation) + The Saint John River Bridge Abutment (slope stability) + Foundation of Briaud’s House (shrink swell soils) + The Eiffel Tower (deep foundation) + St. Isaac Cathedral (mat foundation) + National Geotechnical Experimentation Sites at Texas A&M University (full scale infrastructure tests) + The 827 M-High Burj Khalifa Tower Foundation (combined pile raft foundation) + New Orleans Levees and Katrina Hurricane (overtopping erosion) + Three Gorges Dam (concrete dam) + The Kansai International Airport (earth fill in the sea) + The Panama Canal (excavated slopes) + The Nice Airport Slope Failure (slope stability).

From site investigation and geophysics to earthquake engineering and deep foundations, Geotechnical Engineering is an ideal resource for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as practicing professionals in geotechnical engineering and soil mechanics.

This book provides a review of problems during design and construction on problematic soils. Design methods, site investigation, construction and analysis of the various improvement methods available are explained and discussed. Various regions may have different soils with geotechnical problems that differ from those faced in other regions. For example, in Southeast Asia, the common geotechnical problems are those associated with construction on soft clays and organic soils, while in the arid region of the Middle East, problems are generally associated with the desert soils. In the US, the problems are associated with organic soils, expansive and collapsing soils, and shale. Laterite and lateritic soils are especially problematic in Mexico. Similarly, in Europe, for example, the geotechnical problems are associated with loess (France), and organic soil (Germany). A detailed description of various methods of ground improvement has been provided in 11 chapters. Each chapter deals not only with a description of the method but also focuses on region-specific ground problems and suitable ground improvement techniques. Case studies have also been included. One general chapter is dedicated to site investigation, instrumentation, assessment and control. This book will be of value to students and professionals in the fields of civil and geotechnical engineering, as well as to soil scientists and engineering geologists.

Ferdinand P. Beer, E. Russell Johnston Jr., John T. DeWolf, David Mazurek ... 864 pages - Language: ‎ English - Publisher: ‎ McGraw-Hill Education; 3rd edition (March 6, 2020) - ISBN-10: ‎1260570983 - ISBN-13: ‎978-1260570984.

The approach of the Beer and Johnston series has been appreciated by hundreds of thousands of students over decades of engineering education. Maintaining the proven methodology and pedagogy of the Beer and Johnson series, Statics and Mechanics of Materials combines the theory and application behind these two subjects into one cohesive text focusing on teaching students to analyze problems in a simple and logical manner and, then, to use fundamental and well-understood principles in the solution.

The addition of Case Studies based on real-world engineering problems provides students with an immediate application of the theory. A wealth of problems, Beer and Johnston's hallmark sample problems, and valuable review and summary sections at the end of each chapter, highlight the key pedagogy of the text.

Robin Chowdhury, Gautam Bhattacharya, Subhadeep Metya ... 790 pages - Language: ‎English- Publisher: ‎ CRC Press; 2nd edition (November, 2023) - ISBN-10: ‎1138000116 - ISBN-13:‎ 978-1138000117.

This second edition of Geotechnical Slope Analysis is an updated version of the original scholarly book. In this edition, concepts and applications have been thoroughly revised. In particular, the ‘Initial Stress Approach’ has been extended to 2D problems in a more rigorous manner. Additional solved numerical examples have been added in several chapters. More importantly, the meaning of the results is explored through interpretation.

The influence of initial stresses, pore water pressures and seismic forces has been explored not only on performance indicators such as the ‘Factor of Safety’ but also on the location of critical slip surfaces. In addition to these factors, it is shown that the chosen method of analysis may also have a significant influence on the location of the critical slip surface. Student exercises have been included in some chapters with a view to encouraging further study and research, and reference is often made to case studies of particular importance.

The best features of the book have been retained with continued emphasis on both deterministic and probabilistic approaches for quantifying slope performance. The traditional performance indicator such as ‘Factor of Safety’ can be complemented by the calculation of the ‘Reliability Index’ and the ‘Probability of Failure’. This book focuses on research studies concerning slope behaviour, the occurrence of landslides and the use of alternative methods of analysis and interpretation. The importance of uncertainties in slope performance and, more broadly, in geotechnical engineering is emphasised.

This book will be valuable to undergraduate and senior students of civil, mining and geological engineering as well as to academic teachers and instructors and also to researchers, practising geotechnical engineers and consultants.
