About this item
This book cover problems and their solution of a wide range of geotechnical topics. Every Chapter starts with a Summary of key concepts and theory, followed by worked-out examples, and ends with a short list of Key References. It presents a unique collection of step by step solutions from basic to more complex problems in various topics of geotechnical engineering, including fundamental topics such as effective stress, permeability, elastic deformation, shear strength and critical together with more applied topics such Retaining Structures and Dams, excavation and tunnels, Pavement infrastructure, unsaturated soil mechanics, marine works, ground monitoring.
This book aims to provide students (undergraduates and postgraduates) and practitioners alike a reference guide on how to solve typical geotechnical problems.
