A fully up-to-date, practical guide to foundation engineering
Revised to cover the 2009 International Building Code,
"Foundation Engineering Handbook," Second Edition presents basic
geotechnical field and laboratory studies, such as subsurface
exploration and laboratory testing of soil, rock, and groundwater
samples. The book then discusses the geotechnical aspects of
foundation engineering, including conditions commonly encountered
by design engineers--settlement, expansive soil, and slope
stability. Details on the performance or engineering evaluation of
foundation construction and the application of the 2009
International Building Code are included in this valuable
"FOUNDATION ENGINEERING HANDBOOK," SECOND EDITION COVERS:
Subsurface exploration Laboratory testing Soil mechanics Shallow
and deep foundations Bearing capacity and settlement of foundations
Foundations on expansive soil Slope stability Retaining walls
Foundation deterioration and cracking Geotechnical earthquake
engineering for soils, foundations, and retaining walls Grading and
other soil improvement methods Foundation excavation, underpinning,
and field load tests Geosynthetics and instrumentation 2009
