9780470376270: Geotechnical Engineering in Residual Soils

Wiley has long held a pre-eminent position as a publisher of books on geotechnical engineering, with a particular strength in soil behavior and soil mechanics, at both the academic and professional level. This reference will be the first book focused entirely on the unique engineering properties of residual soil.  Given the predominance of residual soils in the under-developed parts of the United States and the Southern Hemisphere, and the increasing rate of new construction in these regions, the understanding of residual soils is expected to increase in importance in the coming years.  This book will be written for the practicing geotechnical engineer working to any degree with residual soils.  It will describe the unique properties of residual soil and provide innovative design techniques for building on it safely.The author will draw on his 30 years of practical experience as a practicing geotechnical engineer, imbuing the work with real world examples and practice problems influenced by his work in South America and Southeast Asia.

From the Back Cover:

The pioneering guide that breaks ground on the unique engineering properties of residual soils

Geotechnical Engineering in Residual Soils digs deep to help enrich the reader's knowledge on the subject of soils—in particular, residual soils—as they pertain to engineering. Appearing mostly in underdeveloped parts of the United States and tropical countries, these soils are playing an increasingly important role in building designs as construction encroaches into these areas. In recognition of this fact, this guide equips geotechnical engineers with essentials for learning the concepts and principles of residual soil behavior—and serves as a starting point to assist them in pursuing innovative engineering strategies for working effectively with residual soils. Geotechnical Engineering in Residual Soils:

  • Introduces geotechnical engineers to those aspects of residual soil behavior that they ought to be aware of when undertaking projects in these soils
  • Highlights the mistaken interpretations of soil behavior that can result from the application to residual soils of traditional concepts derived from sedimentary soils
  • Includes numerous illustrations throughout, specifically addressing the unique properties of residual soils
  • Includes coverage of special topics, such as the role of negative pore pressure above the water table, the influence of weather conditions on soil behavior, the properties of volcanic soils, and compaction of residual soils
  • Is written by an author with more than thirty years of firsthand experience analyzing and designing for construction on residual soils

Thorough and insightful, Geotechnical Engineering in Residual Soils delivers a fresh overview on understanding the structural and mechanical properties of soils from an engineering perspective—and informs readers how to solidify design approaches to set their projects on a sure footing.

About the Author:

Laurence D. Wesley worked as a practicing geotechnical engineer for more than thirty years, with experience in New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Bahrain. He is a Lifetime Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and a retired senior lecturer in geotechnical engineering at the University of Auckland.
