FOUNDATION ENGINEERING HANDBOOK
This reference on applied soil mechanics explains basic principles in the most important areas of foundation engineering and illustrates on-the-job applications of these principles with practical examples. It contains information on design, analysis and construction of foundations for a wide variety of purposes, including amelioration of deficient foundation soils. It presents information useful in such job-related situations as injections, floating foundations, foundation vibrations, cellular and buried structures, prevention or correction of landslides, and earthquake effects on soil-foundations systems. This handbook was written by 27 specialists to provide a greater understanding of the nature and properties of soil and similar natural or artificial systems upon which foundations are built.
