Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0632041269, Paperback)

Now in its 7th edition, this well established book provides undergraduate degree and HND students of civil engineering with a core text on the theory and treatments of soil mechanics. The fundamental principles of the subject are explained clearly and logically and their use in practical applications is well illustrated. The book also features a wide range of worked examples and problems that aid student-centred learning. The main features of the 7th edition are the new sections describing limit state design and unsaturated soils. These two topics have been included to reflect the recent changes in practice in these two subject areas. New worked examples have been provided to help guide the reader through the new design approaches endorsed through the limit state design methods set out in the new geotechnical codes, and an up-to-date appraisal is given of the problems of unsaturated soil.

An introduction, for the first time, to practical geotechnical design using limit state theory, together with new worked examples.
An outline of the changes introduced by the draft European Geotechnical Design Code, Eurocode 7.
A revised section on unsaturated soils.
New material in a number of areas including soil nailing, highway design, and in situ moisture content determination.
Extensive number of worked examples.
Larger format with improved illustrations.
