This international piling handbook is essential for geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists responsible for designing and constructing piled foundations. It explains general principles and practice and details current types of pile, piling equipment and methods. It includes calculations of the resistance of piles to compressive loads, pile groups under compressive loading, piled foundations for resisting uplift and lateral loading and the structural design of piles and pile groups. Marine structures, durability of piled foundations, ground investigations, and pile testing are also covered - as are miscellaneous problems such as machinery foundations, underpinning, mining subsidence areas, geothermal piles and unexploded ordnance. This edition has been fully up-dated to apply the latest version of Eurocode 7 and the UK National Annex, and refers to other structural Eurocodes for steel, concrete and timber relevant to pile design. New British Standards covering pile construction and material testing are extensively cross-referenced to provide a comprehensive text compatible with the Eurocodes, and aspects of now withdrawn BSI codes are retained where useful to the designer. Changes to the procurement and management of civil engineering contracts applicable to piling projects are summarised. It is well illustrated and includes numerous examples, re-worked to the codes, many based on actual problems.

Review:

"If you work in the ground engineering sector then this is a must for your bookshelf. ... Now in its sixth edition, this book adheres (excuse the pun) to the guiding principles of the first... New material extends to the consideration of new codified design procedures such as Eurocodes, the use and development of larger more powerful pile installation equipment and new methods of analysis based on current innovation and research."
―Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology, November 2015

"This is the standard of care, the ultimate, practical arbitrator."
―Donald A Bruce, Geosystems LP

"The book gives a comprehensive overview of the piling techniques in common use, their advantages and disadvantages. This information gives a sound basis for the selection of a given technique. Design of piles to Eurocode 7 is well described and all the general pile installation methods covered."
―Hilary Skinner, Donaldson Associates Ltd

About the Author:

The late Michael Tomlinson was a pre-eminent structural, civil and geotechnical engineer in a career spanning over 60 years of contracting, designing and independent consultancy. He served on several British Standards committees and was the first recipient of the Skempton Gold Medal awarded by the British Geotechnical Society.

John Woodward has extensive experience of piling and ground engineering projects in the UK and overseas, recently as a consultant investigating piling and stability failures and as an adjudicator resolving contractual and technical disputes. He is also author of An Introduction to Geotechnical Processes (Taylor and Francis, 2005).
