Foundation Design and Construction

Foundation Design and Construction 

M. J. Tomlinson

Preference :

Foundation Design and Construction has long been established as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the subject. The combination of soil engineering principles, design information, and construction details, makes this book an essential resource for undergraduates and practitioners alike. The text first introduces basic theory and then, by means of case studies, practical worked examples, and design charts develop an in-depth understanding of foundation design and construction methods. Types of foundation covered include shallow strip, pad and raft, basement structures, driven and bored piles, and deep shafts. Practical information is also given on foundation design for swelling and shrinking clays, filled ground, and mining subsidence areas. In addition, the text contains a useful introduction to computer-aided design. The seventh edition has been brought up-to-date with recent developments in foundation design and construction techniques.
