Excavations and Foundations in Soft Soils

Excavations and Foundations in Soft Soils 

Hans-Georg Kempfert

Preference :

The book is about soft soil engineering and is intended to serve the practicing as well as the research engineers. The planning, design, and construction of excavations and foundations in soft to very soft soils is always a difficult and challenging assignment to engineers. The authors have tried to address some of these problems and challenges in this book. Besides the state of the art of soft soils, the author's own research results and experiences from practical projects are presented in the book. Special emphasis is also given among others on the presentation of several case studies corresponding to each topic treated in the book as well as a summary of the experiences in the determination of soil parameters for finite element analysis of geotechnical problems. The book is illustrated by a wealth of photographs and diagrams. The reader is referred to chapter 1 for a general introduction to the content of the book, the motives, and the backgrounds of the book.
