9780444997784: 002: Soil Testing (Handbook of Soil Mechanics)

This is the third volume of a handbook which covers the whole field of soil mechanics, discussing deterministic and stochastic theories and methods, and showing how they can be used in conjunction with one another. The first volume discusses soil physics, while the second deals with the determination of physical characteristics of the soil. Australian Mining wrote of the Handbook ``a valuable addition to the extensive literature on the topic and will be found to be more useful than most.''

The main objective of the third volume is to present solutions to the problems of engineering practice. It deals with the most important theoretical and practical problems of soil mechanics, discussing the following in detail: stability of earthworks, load-bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundations, design of pile foundations, soil mechanics in road construction, improving the physical properties of soils, the characteristics of soil dynamics, foundations for machines and soil behaviour as affected by earthquakes. The book not only presents up-to-date deterministic methods, but also discusses solutions of probability theory in the fields of design and safety.

The book is divided into six chapters covering the stability of slopes, landslides, load-bearing capacity and settlement of shallow foundations and pile foundations, soil mechanics in road construction, and the improvement of the physical characteristics of soil with special emphasis on machine foundations and earthquakes, giving detailed treatment of each subject. For example, the first chapter deals not only with the stability of slopes, but also discusses the natural and artificial effects, slope protection, filter design, stresses in embankments, and the time factor. In this way, the book gives a clear and comprehensive picture of the special fields of soil mechanics and its subjects. It is therefore emminently suitable for postgraduate engineers, and engineers working in the fields of geotechnics, earthworks, foundations, road construction, engineering geology and statistics, and the design of structures.

Review:

...Together with the companion volumes, this book provides a valuable text for both students and practising engineers...
Géotechnique, Sept, 1989
...The reviewer certainly believes that libraries should possess this book while, for individuals, it can also serve as a handy reference for both managers or practicing engineers who are working on any technical system.
Applied Mechanics Review, 1989
In general, the text is very well written with excellent illustrations. There is an excellent list of references at the end of each chapter, a number of which are recent and have been published during the last ten years...This book will serve as an excellent reference book for students in the area of geotechnical engineering and consulting civil engineers. It is recommended for all engineering libraries.
