    CRC Press 2002; US$ 159.95

    A must have reference for any engineer involved with foundations, piers, and retaining walls, this remarkably comprehensive volume illustrates soil characteristic concepts with examples that detail a wealth of practical considerations, It covers the latest developments in the design of drilled pier foundations and mechanically stabilized earth retaining... more...

  • Reinforced Soil Engineeringby Hoe I. Ling; Dov Leshchinsky; Fumio Tatsuoka

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 275.00

    This one-of-a-kind reference evaluates the efficacy, stability, and strength of various soil walls, slopes, and structures enhanced by geosynthetic materials. Offering stimulating contributions from more than 50 leading specialists in the field, Reinforced Soil Engineering compiles recent innovations in design layout, controlled construction, and geosynthetic... more...

  • The Mechanics of Soils and Foundations, Second Editionby John Atkinson

    CRC Press 2007; US$ 172.95

    Ideal for undergraduates of geotechnical engineering for civil engineers, this established textbook sets out the basic theories of soil mechanics in a clear and straightforward way; combining both classical and critical state theories and giving students a good grounding in the subject which will last right through into a career as a geotechnical... more...

  • Advanced Unsaturated Soil Mechanics and Engineeringby Charles Wang Wai Ng; Bruce Menzies

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 231.00

    Analytical and comprehensive, this state-of-the-art book, examines the mechanics and engineering of unsaturated soils, as well as explaining the laboratory and field testing and research that are the logical basis of this modern approach to safe construction in these hazardous geomaterials; putting them into a logical framework for civil engineering... more...

  • Reliability-Based Design in Geotechnical Engineeringby Kok-Kwang Phoon

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 199.95

    Reliability-based design is the only engineering methodology currently available which can ensure self-consistency in both physical and probabilistic terms.  It is also uniquely compatible with the theoretical basis underlying other disciplines such as structural design. It is especially relevant as geotechnical design becomes subject to increasing... more...

  • Geotechnical Engineering, Second Editionby Renato Lancellotta

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 209.95

    Established as a standard textbook for students of geotechnical engineering, this second edition of Geotechnical Engineering provides a solid grounding in the mechanics of soils and soil-structure interaction. Renato Lancellotta gives a clear presentation of the fundamental principles of soil mechanics and demonstrates how these principles are... more...
