The Engineering of Foundations

The Engineering of Foundations 

Rodrigo Salgado

Preference :

The Engineering of Foundations incorporates theory into real-world practice. The text emphasizes conceptual understanding and avoids an oversimplistic treatment of the subject. Estimation of soil parameters for use in design is given high priority. Users will find an up-to-date text that relates theory to real-world practices and integrates concepts and continuity of examples across chapters. Illustrations, applications, and hands-on examples are provided.
