Principles of Geotechnical Engineering

Principles of Geotechnical Engineering 

Braja M. Das

Preference :

Principles of Geotechnical Engineering is intended for use as a text for the introductory course in geotechnical engineering taken by practically all civil engineering students, as well as for use as a reference book for practicing engineers. The book has been revised in 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006, and 2010. The eighth edition was published in 2014 with coauthor, Khaled Sobhan of Florida Atlantic University. As in the previous editions of the book, this new edition offers a valuable overview of soil properties and mechanics, together with coverage of field practices and basic engineering procedures. It is not the intent of this book to conform to any design codes. The authors appreciate the overwhelming adoption of this text in various classrooms and are gratified that it has become the market-leading textbook for the course.
