Foundation Engineering in Difficult Ground Book Description :

Foundation Engineering in Difficult Ground discusses the different principles and practices involved in the building of foundations in different soil types, especially on difficult ground. The book covers topics such as the classification of soil; silts, loess, and tills; the mechanical behavior of rocks; and the engineering aspects of rock weathering, engineering classification of rock masses, and the engineering performance of rocks. Also covered in the book are topics such as models for the mechanical behaviour of soil; computer predictions in difficult soil conditions; foundations on rock, settlement foundations, and the relation of earth movement on foundations; ground treatment; and the appraisal of stability conditions in different soil conditions. The text is recommended for engineers who are in need of a guide in the establishment of foundations in different soil conditions, especially those in difficult ones.

Handbook of Geotechnical Investigation and Design Tables Book Description :

This practical handbook of properties for soils and rock contains, in a concise tabular format, the key issues relevant to geotechnical investigations, assessments and designs in common practice. In addition, there are brief notes on the application of the tables. These data tables are compiled for experienced geotechnical professionals who require a reference document to access key information. There is an extensive database of correlations for different applications. The book should provide a useful bridge between soil and rock mechanics theory and its application to practical engineering solutions. The initial chapters deal with the planning of the geotechnical investigation, the classification of the soil and rock properties and some of the more used testing is then covered. Later chapters show the reliability and correlations that are used to convert that data in the interpretative and assessment phase of the project. The final chapters apply some of these concepts to geotechnical design. This book is intended primarily for practicing geotechnical engineers working in investigation, assessment and design, but should provide a useful supplement for postgraduate courses.

Basics of Foundation Design Book Description :

The "Red Book" presents a background to conventional foundation analysis and design. The text is not intended to replace the much more comprehensive 'standard' textbooks, but rather to support and augment these in a few important areas, supplying methods applicable to practical cases handled daily by practising engineers and providing the basic soil mechanics background to those methods. It concentrates on the static design for stationary foundation conditions. Although the topic is far from exhaustively treated, it does intend to present most of the basic material needed for a practising engineer involved in routine geotechnical design, as well as provide the tools for an engineering student to approach and solve common geotechnical design problems.
