Residual soils are found in many parts of the world. Like other soils, they are used extensively in construction, being built upon and used as construction materials. Residual soils are formed when the processes of rock weathering proceed at a faster rate than the transport processes by water, gravity and wind, whereby much of the resulting soils will remain in place. The soil typically retains many of the characteristics of the parent rock. In a tropical region, residual soil layers can be very thick, sometimes extending for hundred of meters before reaching unweathered rock. This book has gathered state-of-the-art knowledge from a number of experienced experts working in foundation engineering in tropical residual soils. Subjects covered are: geology and formation of residual soils, site investigations, characterization and selection of parameters for foundation design, design of shallow and deep foundations which include driven piles, drilled shafts and caissons, and special topics which include design of piles in marginally-stable river banks, micro piles, Augeo pile, pile load and NDT, foundation failures and remedial works, and pile supported embankment. The book also includes a country case study on engineering geology in relation to foundation engineering in Malaysia.

Written to Eurocode 7 and the UK National Annex Updated to reflect the current usage of Eurocode 7, along with relevant parts of the British Standards, Pile Design and Construction Practice, Sixth Edition maintains the empirical correlations of the original—combining practical know how with scientific knowledge —and emphasizing relevant principles and applications of soil mechanics and design. Contractors, geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists responsible for designing and constructing piled foundations can find the most current types of pile, piling equipment, and relevant methods in this latest work. The book summarizes recent changes, including new codified design procedures addressing design parameters and partial safety factors. It also presents several examples, many based on actual problems. Broad and Comprehensive In Its Coverage Contains material applicable to modern computational practice Provides new sections on the construction of micropiles and CFA piles, pile-soil interaction, verification of pile materials, piling for integral bridge abutments, use of polymer stabilising fluids, and more Includes calculations of the resistance of piles to compressive loads, pile groups under compressive loading, piled foundations for resisting uplift and lateral loading, and the structural design of piles and pile groups Covers marine structures, durability of piled foundations, ground investigations, and pile testing Addresses miscellaneous problems such as machinery foundations, underpinning, mining subsidence areas, geothermal piles, and unexploded ordnance Pile Design and Construction Practice, Sixth Edition serves as a comprehensive guide for practicing geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists. This text also works as a resource for piling contractors and graduate students studying geotechnical engineering.

This comprehensive text on foundation design is intended to introduce students of civil engineering, architecture, and environmental disciplines to the fundamentals of designing sound foundations and their implementation. It offers an in-depth coverage of pre- and post-design methodologies that include soil identification, site investigation, interpretation of soil data and design parameters, foundations on different soil types through to settlements, seismic responses, and construction concerns. Though the book is woven around principles of foundation design, it also incorporates application aspects that bridge theory and practice. As an issue of contemporary importance it discusses geotechnical details of developing earthquake resistant designs for different soil types. In addition, the authors provide an extensive account of ground improvement techniques. Supported by the abundance of real-world events/situations and examples that help students master the text concepts, this volume becomes an incisive text and reference guide.

Takes you through the typical process of a design project - from the initial writing of a proposal for engineering services to the final preparation of the 'as built' report upon completion of the project. This reference places emphasis on the visual aspects of geotechnical and foundation engineering.

"Shell foundations are economic alternatives to plain foundations in situations involving heavy superstructural loads to be transmitted to weaker soils. The book presents in one volume the geotechnical and structural aspects of design and construction of shell foundations." "Essentially focused on the needs of postgraduate students in geotechnical and structural engineering, the book will be of immense help to research scholars, design professionals, consulting engineers and architects."--BOOK JACKET.
