CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Advanced Foundation Engineering is the second volume in the series on
geotechnical engineering, closely following A Textbook of Soil Mechanics and
Foundation Engineering written to meet the requirements of undergraduate
students. This volume covers various aspects of foundation engineering,
bringing together all the relevant advanced theories coherently. As foundations
have to be designed to simulate field conditions, it is imperative that the
consulting engineer must be conversant with all the theories that are available
as also the available approaches. This volume strives to meet most of these
requirements It also presents in detail author s own research work on laterally
loaded pile foundations to solve many of the problems confronted in this field.
The approach is direct and simple as compared to the complicated methods
proposed by others. This is an excellent text reference for the postgraduate
students, practising engineers, consultants, researchers and professionals, in
addition to serving as a valuable resource for the candidates appearing in
Graduate Aptitude Test for Engineers (GATE), UPSC and other national selection
entrance tests/examinations. 1 introduction. 2 shallow foundaion 1,2,3,4, 3
