Geotechnics Design and Applications Manual
The Geotechnical Design and Application Manual includes all the material covered on a geotechnical engineering module in a construction-related diploma or degree course.
In addition to covering site investigation, engineering geology, soils and rocks, groundwater, foundations, earth pressures and retaining walls, slope stability and ground improvement, the book also covers Eurocode 7 on geotechnical design. It gives enough detail of both the relevant British Standards and Eurocode 7 to ensure you understand the transition between the codes.
The accessible, easy-to-follow approach to mathematical concepts is ideal if you are less confident in this area.
