Principles of Foundation Engineering

Principles of Foundation Engineering 

Braja M. Das

Preference :

Soil mechanics and foundation engineering have developed rapidly during the last seventy years. Intensive research and observation in the field and the laboratory have refined and improved the science of foundation design. Originally published in the fall of 1983, Principles of Foundation Engineering is now in the ninth edition. It is intended primarily for use by undergraduate civil engineering students. The use of this text throughout the world has increased greatly over the years. It has also been translated into several languages. New and improved materials that have been published in various geotechnical engineering journals and conference proceedings, consistent with the level of understanding of the intended users, have been incorporated into each edition of the text.
