  1. Soil Mechanics

    Concepts and Applications, Third Edition

    By William Powrie

    Instead of fixating on formulae, Soil Mechanics: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition focuses on the fundamentals. This book describes the mechanical behaviour of soils as it relates to the practice of geotechnical engineering. It covers both principles and design, avoids complex mathematics...

  4. Design and Performance of Embankments on Very Soft Soils

    By Márcio de Souza S. Almeida, Maria Esther Soares Marques

    Embankment construction projects on very soft soil often give rise to serious problems. This volume on geotechnics and soft soil engineering therefore treats all phases of the design and construction process exhaustively, from the first investigation step to the monitoring of constructed work. The...

  6. Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Geotechnical Practice

    By Geoffrey E Blight

    There are other books on unsaturated soil mechanics, but this book is different. Unsaturated soil mechanics is only one aspect of a continuous range of soil mechanics studies that extends from the rheology of high water content soil slurries to the mechanics of soft soils, to stiff saturated soils,...
