For undergraduate-level courses in Introductory Geotechnical Engineering. This introduction to geotechnical engineering explores both the principles of soil mechanics and their application to engineering practice — and offers a more rigorous — yet still accessible and easy-to-read — approach, more technical depth, and more emphasis on understanding the physical basis for soil behavior.

“I like the balance between the analytical and empirical aspects of foundation engineering. The coverage of both geotechnical and structural engineering aspects of foundation is also appealing.”
-Dobroslav Znidarcic, UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO, BOULDER
“The material is very current. The author stays on top of the profession and uses state-of-the-art information, techniques, and methods.”
-Roman D. Hryciw, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN
“The coverage of the book is excellent, and it is well-grounded in the fundamentals of soil mechanics.”
-Ed Kavazanjian, ARIZONA STATE UNIVERSITY
“The book presents the practice side of foundation engineering in addition to the principles of design. Most textbooks present only the principles.”
-M. Sherif Aggour, UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND
“Interesting and very useful features of this book are: 1.) the List of Vocabulary, 2.0 the Summary of Major Points at the end of each chapter, and 3.) the use of both English and SI units–this is particularly important for empirical equations with built-in units.”
