Material type: TextTextPublisher: Chichester, West Sussex : John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014Edition: 9th ed.Description: xvi, 471 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm.ISBN: 9780470673393 (pbk.); 0470673397.Other title: Elements of soil mechanics.Subject(s): Soil mechanicsDDC classification: 624.15136 Online resources: WorldCat Details | Ebook Fulltext
Contents:
Table of contents Classification and physical properties of soils -- Permeability and flow of water in soils -- Total and effective stress -- Shear strength of soils -- Eurocode 7 -- Site investigation -- Lateral Earth pressure -- Retaining structures -- Bearing capacity and shallow foundations -- Pile foundations -- Foundation settlement and soil compression -- Rate of foundation settlement -- Stability of slopes -- Compaction and soil mechanics aspects of highway design.
Summary: Maintains the content on all soil mechanics subject areas - groundwater flow, soil physical properties, stresses, shear strength, consolidation and settlement, slope stability, retaining walls, shallow and deep foundations, site investigation - but has been expanded to include an explanation of how to use Eurocode 7 for geotechnical design.
