Description

Practical Problems in Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, 1: Physical Characteristics of Soils, Plasticity, Settlement Calculations, Interpretation of In-Situ Tests presents the analysis and calculation procedures for the solution of geotechnical problems. The book contains example problems with detailed step-by-step solutions. The text emphasizes the application of theoretical soil mechanics to geotechnical engineering. Chapters provide example problems and solutions on the physical characteristics of soil, water in the soil, settlement calculations, plasticity and shear strength, plastic equilibrium, and interpretation of in-situ tests. Civil engineers and civil engineering students will find the book highly useful.
