The Foundation Engineering Handbook

The Foundation Engineering Handbook 

Manjriker Gunaratne

Preference :

The first edition of the Foundation Engineering Handbook was well received by users. One major reason for this is its fulfillment of the need for both classical foundation design principles and the latest contributions made to the state of knowledge. Some of the unique areas covered in the first edition were innovative in situ testing and site improvement techniques, concepts of ground deformation modeling using the finite element method, reliability-based design concepts, and pile construction monitoring techniques that are in wide use today. In this new edition, the handbook includes additional applications in the state of the art such as unsaturated soil mechanics, analysis of transient flow through soils, deep foundation construction monitoring based on thermal integrity profiling, and updated ground remediation techniques. Furthermore, in the new edition, almost every chapter has been updated by adding alternative analytical techniques such as the force polygon method of analysis and a number of additional illustrative examples to complement the existing ones.
