The second edition of the book is the result of a full revision of the text of the first edition, and takes account of recent research. One chapter has been re-written to give a better assessment of the relation between mathematical models and the behaviour of real soils, and a new chapter has been added which gives an introduction to geotechnical processes. Chapters are as follows: the analysis and classification of soils; the clay minerals; pore pressure, effective stress and suction; permeability and seepage; consolidation; the shear strength of soil; site investigation and in situ tests; failure conditions in a soil mass; lateral earth pressure, stability of slopes; bearing capacity of foundations; piled foundations; geotechnical processes; and the finite element method. /TRRL/
