Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering

Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering 

Braja M. Das

Preference :

During the past half-century, geotechnical engineering soil mechanics, and foundation engineering have developed rapidly. Intensive research and observation in the field and laboratory have refined and improved the science of foundation design. Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering, Second Edition, uses those materials, and they are presented in a simple and concise form. This book is designed primarily for classroom instruction in Civil Engineering Technology and Construction Management programs. It is non-calculus based. It will be a useful reference book for civil engineering practitioners. It also can be used as a text for students in Civil Engineering programs where soil mechanics and foundations are combined into one course and covered in one semester. However, some supplemental material may be necessary.

Content :
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Grain-Size Analysis
  • Weight–Volume Relationships
  • Plasticity and Soil Classification
  • Soil Compaction
  • Permeability and Capillarity
  • Stresses in a Soil Mass
  • Consolidation

  • Subsurface Exploration
  • Lateral Earth Pressure: At-Rest, Rankine, and Coulomb
  • Shallow Foundations—Bearing Capacity and Settlement
  • Deep Foundations
  • Retaining Walls
  • Slope Stability
  • Answers to Problems
