Free book TGeotechnical Engineering - Applied Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering - Volume 1. This book was released on 2020 with total page pages. Book excerpt: Soils are the most common and complex type of construction material. Virtually all structures are either built with soil (e.g., earth dams and embankments), in soil (e.g., tunnels and underground storage facilities), or on soil (e.g., building foundations and roads). Soil conditions and load combinations are unique to each site. To be able to predict soil behavior under the anticipated loading conditions, the mechanics of soils should be well understood, and their specific properties evaluated. The project design should also take into consideration the environmental, social, and economic factors. The five-volume book series delivers a comprehensive coverage of topics in geotechnical engineering practice. The unique design of the text allows the user to look up a topic of interest and be able to find, in most cases, the related information all on the same sheet with related figures and tables, eliminating the need for figure and table referral numbers. In a way, each page is a capsule of information on its own, yet, related to the subject covered in that chapter. The topics covered in all five volumes will assist the reader with becoming a licensed professional engineer (PE) and a licensed geotechnical engineer (GE). Volume 1 contains chapters 1 through 7, which provides the user with a practical guide on the fundamentals of soil mechanics, including: Natural Soil Deposits, Soil Composition and Properties, Soil Improvement, Soil Water, Soil Stresses, Soil Compressibility and Settlement, and Shear Strength of Soil. Example problems follow the topic they cover. Several practice problems are included at the end of each chapter with the answers provided. It also contains the necessary forms, tables, and graphing papers for the state-of-the-practice laboratory experiments in soil mechanics.
