Geotechnical Design has evolved in line with technological advances which are being constantly refined. In fact, the new design trends have resulted in the generation of a new breed of specialist geotechnical contractors capable of executing design requirements in the most challenging soil conditions. In this rspect, the use of Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) is no longer limited to large projects such as the Channel Tunnel; instead, tunnelling machines are available in any specified diameter, allowing for the execution of tunnels with diameters varying between 100 mm and 14 m, in any ground conditions. Equally, automated piling equipment is capable of drilling, concreting and reinforcing a 10 m deep, 360 mm diamter pile in less than 15 minutes. On the other hand, the use of pressuremeter and centrifuge testing for design purposes is becoming more of a norm in geotechnical design, making it essential to develop and adopt new design methodologies to keep up with these techniques. Engineering Design in Geotechnics includes the latest analytical tools directly linked to modern geotechnical practice. As such, the book which contains in excess of 300 state of the art illustrations and more than 50 worked examples, is an essential text for students and practising engineers alike.
