Using language that is easy to understand, the text explains key concepts and principles in the context of basic mechanics, physics, and mathematics. Many worked-out examples illustrate problem-solving techniques step by step. You'll have many unique opportunities for interactive exploration, as you learn the fundamentals of soil mechanics, including: * How to characterize and classify soils * How to plan and conduct a soil investigation * The role of effective stresses, consolidation, shear strength, and critical state soil mechanics linking consolidation and shear strength * The effects of seepage on stability * How to estimate bearing capacity and settlement * How to analyze and design simple geotechnical systems Now revised, this Second Edition features a new chapter on basic geology, more examples and problems, shorter chapters, and a stronger integration with the resources on the accompanying CD. Users can follow different learning pathways depending on the educational goals. Multimedia resources provide a hands-on learning environment The CD packaged with this textbook includes: * Virtual soils laboratory * Interactive animations of basic concepts * Interactive problem solving * Interactive step-by-step examples * Electronic quizzes * Computer programs"--Read Less
