This is the sixth edition of the bestselling text which has been widely praised for its clarity, depth of explanation and extensive coverage. As with previous editions, the aim is to present the fundamental principles of soil mechanics and illustrate how they are applied in practical situations. This is reinforced by the inclusion of worked examples throughout the book and a range of problems set for solution by the reader. The book assembles all the essential elements of an undergraduate course, leading from the properties of soils and basic theory through to practical applications such as retaining structures and foundations. Semi-empirical procedures are also covered.
