Ideal for beginners, SOILS AND FOUNDATIONS, 8/e presents all essential aspects of soils and foundations in as simple and direct a manner as possible. Filled with worked examples, step-by-step solutions, and hands-on practice problems, it emphasizes design and practical applications supported by basic theory. Throughout, the authors promote learning through the extensive use of diagrams, charts, and illustrations. Coverage includes: engineering properties of soils: soil exploration, compaction, stabilization, and consolidation; water in soil; subsurface stresses; settlement of structures; shear strength; shallow and deep foundations; lateral earth pressure; retaining structures, and stability analysis of slopes. This edition's new coverage includes Pressuremeter and Dilatometer tests, water flow characterization with Bernoulli's Theorem, dewatering, uplift pressure on dams, and subsurface stresses caused by overlying soil masses.
Fair. May have highlighting or writing depending on stock, best looking books go first. Book only no supplementary matrials included. PLEASE NOTE. if the book is Very good good or acceptable it may come with a Rental used sticker on the front cover this is NOT a rental, it is hard to remove all the stickers. Regualar media mail for 3.99 Takes quite a while I would suggest priority maile. If regular shipped it will be 4-14 days...If priority it will be in 2-4 days...PLEASE NOTE. if the book.
New in new dust jacket. Alternate edition or International Edition, different cover and ISBN on the outside but same contents on the inside. Don't usually come with supplemental items like access codes or DVD/CD. Saves you a lot!
Liu and Evett's book is a good reference for geotechs and non-geotechs as a companion to someone like Das. They have a bit different information by way of research and examples than other books which provides a more complete presentation of the material fundamental to geotechnical engineering.
