This rigorous textbook covers the construction, analysis and design of shallow and deep foundations, as well as retaining structures and slopes. It incorporates theory with practice, and emphasizes conceptual understanding. Estimation of soil parameters for use in design is given high priority. Illustrations, applications, and hands-on examples which continue across chapters are provided.





It is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and will suit specialist practicing engineers and researchers.





In this new edition:








The basic soil mechanics is covered first, fully explaining drained versus undrained loading, phase transformation, development of peak q/p', and critical state and residual state development with sustained shearing.







The LRFD approach to foundations, slopes and retaining structures is overhauled in the light of new research.







Calculations of bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundations are updated to reflect more realistic methods proposed since the 1st edition.







Recent research on piles and new design methods are incorporated, with new methods for both axially loaded piles and laterally loaded piles, so that both traditional knowledge and recent progress in the topic are available.







The treatment of retaining structures and slopes is updated, with better discussion of limit states and the use of slope stability software and strength reduction in computational stability calculations.
