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.

It is well realized that ‘Geotechnical Engineering is an engineering science but its practice is an art!’ Foundations are essential interfaces between the superstructure and the supporting soil at the site of construction. Thus they have to be designed logically to suit the loads coming from the superstructure and the strength, stiffness and other geological conditions of the supporting soil.With an enormous increase in construction activities all over the world, structures and their foundations have become very sophisticated while the supporting soil has to accommodate these variations and complexities. This book focuses on the analysis and design of foundations using rational as well as conventional approaches. It also presents structural design methods using codes of practice and limiting state design of reinforced concrete (RCC) structures. This book was evolved from the courses on Foundation Engineering taught by the author formerly in the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, India and presently in the School of Engineering and IT, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Accordingly, the contents of the book are presented in a user-friendly manner that is easy to follow and practice. Contents The book consists of 12 chapters plus appendices. Chapters 1–3 present the engineering properties, tests and design parameters needed for the analysis and design of foundations. Chapter 4 discusses the conventional and rational approaches for designing different types of shallow foundations, including rafts. Methods for exact solutions using beams and plates on elastic foundations are presented in Chapter 5. Numerical methods of analysis such as finite difference method (FDM) and methods of weighted residuals (Galerkin, least squares, etc.) are discussed in Chapter 6. The finite element method (FEM) for foundation analysis is explained in Chapter 7. The design criteria for shallow foundations are presented in Chapter 8 while actual design principles are given in Chapter 12 along with structural design details. Chapter 9 discusses the design and construction of deep foundations such as piles, large diameter drilled piers, pile raft systems and non-drilled piers/caissons. The construction aspects and design of pile foundations are presented in Chapter 10. The principles of machine foundation design are discussed in Chapter 11. Chapter 12 summarizes the important provision of RCC design codes and comparative features of commonly used codes such as the Indian Code, Euro Code, and ACI Code. As mentioned earlier, detailed examples of structural design of shallowfoundations are also given in this chapter. Special Features Every effort has been made to include the background material for easy understanding of the topics being discussed in the text. Both conventional and rational approaches to analysis and design are included. For example, the provision of RCC codes, pile design and construction, vibration theory and construction practices, as well as tests for obtaining the design parameters are included in the respective chapters. Examples of structural design of foundations are also discussed in detail. Comparative features of different RCC codes relevant to foundation design are also examined to help designers. In addition, several examples have been worked out to illustrate the analysis and design methods presented. Also, assignment problems are given at the end of each chapter for practice. The author hopes that this book will be a very useful resource for courses on Foundation Engineering and Design, Soil-Structure Interaction, and so on, at undergraduate as well as postgraduate levels, besides being helpful to research, development and practice.

Instructional design theory and practice has evolved over the past 30 years from an initial narrow focus on programmed instruction to a multidimensional field of study integrating psychology, technology, evaluation, measurement, and management. The growth of instructional design (ID) has occurred because of direct needs, problems, and goals from society. Its application in planning instruction first developed in the United States with the Department of Defense during World War II with the purpose of meeting immediate concerns for effective training of larger numbers of military personnel. From the beginning, ID has rapidly expanded into applications in industrial and executive training, vocational training, classroom learning, and professional education. Although ID has its roots in the U.S., applications and theoretical growth is an international activity. However, literature at the international level is still limited to either individual author contributions or collections primarily represented by single countries. As a result, there is no standard reference source that contains the rich variety of theories and applications to form the international foundation for the field. The goal of this two-volume set is to establish international foundations for ID theory, research, and practice within the framework of the two following objectives: * to identify and define the theoretical, research, and model foundations for ID, and * to bridge the gap between ID foundations and application. Volume I includes chapters on philosophical and theoretical issues on learning theory and ID models. Volume II provides an overview of the state of the art of solving ID problems. The contributors offer contrasting points of view which provide a rare opportunity to see the diversity and complexity in the field. The editorial committee has selected a wide range of internationally known authors to make presentations in the topic areas of the field.
