" Basic Soil Mechanics " is a successful and respected text for students of civil engineering and construction. It is also a valuable resource for practising engineers engaged in the design and construction of geotechnical structures and systems. An understanding of the nature and properties of soil and rocks is essential for anyone designing, constructing or maintaining buildings or civil engineering works, such as embankments, roads or bridges. "Basic Soil Mechanics" is an eminently accessible guide to the subject which clearly explains the fundamentals of soil mechanics through a wealth of worked examples, exercises and practical applications. Although the basic principles remain unchanged, the fourth edition has now been updated to include current approaches to soil analysis and behavior. In particular the treatment of soil compression and swelling is presented as drained/undrained behaviour linked with the critical-state/peak-state concepts of strength and yielding. Basic Soil Mechanics is now also supplemented with a computer-based package : Soil Mechanics Spreadsheets and Reference. This accompanying CD-ROM contains an electronic tutorial package that includes a suite of interactive spreadsheets, together with assignments covering a range of topics presented in the book. An online reference manual, glossary and self-assessment quizzes are also included. Features : clearly explains the basic principles of the subject, makes use of the most recent approaches and methods, covers relevant Standards and Eurocodes, contains numerous worked examples and practice exercises, accompanying CD-ROM includes spreadsheets, assignments, reference manual, glossary and quizzes.
