A generation of construction-management students has learned from the easy-to-follow, understandable material in Soils in Construction. By keeping math simple and emphasizing construction operations and applications over engineering theory, the authors have created an ideal resource for non-technical, management-focused courses. Students interested in the field applications of soils will gain the knowledge they need to interact confidently with geotechnical engineers in their careers. The book’s extensive discussion of soil materials in the first five chapters is supplemented by an appendix describing testing methods that can easily be adapted to the hands-on component of a course. The remaining seven chapters cover the role that soil materials play in various aspects of construction contracting. Every chapter ends with problems presenting students with the kinds of scenarios they’ll face in the field.

Now Eurocode compliant – in line with the compulsory new design codes brought in across the EU and increasingly adopted worldwide. In Soil Mechanics, Barnes clearly sets out the principles of soil behaviour and shows how engineers have applied these solutions in practice, making this an accessible, highly readable and yet comprehensive textbook for core courses in civil and ground engineering, and a handy resource book for practitioners. This fully revised third edition: ■ is now Eurocode compliant, with a new chapter on the geotechnical Eurocodes ■ features worked examples incorporating the Eurocode limit state design principles, allowing readers to use the new codes confidently ■ includes a range of case studies that demonstrate key problems and how engineers have tackled them ■ uses clear diagrams throughout to illustrate key aspects of soil mechanics and photographs to enhance understanding The solutions manual can be found at

Mit der Herausgabe der Empfehlungen, die normenähnlichen Charakter haben, unterstützt der Arbeitskreis „Baugruben“ der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Geotechnik e.V. (DGGT) die Planungspraxis bei Entwurf und Berechnung von Baugrubenumschließungen. Zur bauaufsichtlichen Einführung der Eurocodes wurde eine Anpassung der 4. Aufl age der Empfehlungen an die Vorgaben der DIN EN 1997-1:2009 in Verbindung mit dem Nationalen Anhang DIN 1997-1/NA:2010-12 und den ergänzenden Regelungen der DIN 1054:2010-12 erforderlich. Alle Empfehlungen wurden gründlich überprüft, soweit erforderlich überarbeitet und an neue Erkenntnisse angepasst. Wesentlich überarbeitet wurde Kapitel 10 „Baugruben im Wasser“. Aufgrund der fortgeschrittenen Entwicklung in der Messtechnik und den gestiegenen Anforderungen wurde Kapitel 14 „Messtechnische Überprüfung und Überwachung von Baugrubenkonstruktionen“ völlig neu formuliert. Die Empfehlungen des Arbeitskreises „Baugruben“ sollen helfen, • Entwurf und Berechnung von Baugrubenumschließungen zu erleichtern, • Lastansätze und Berechnungsverfahren zu vereinheitlichen, • die Standsicherheit der Baugrubenkonstruktionen und ihrer Einzelteile sicherzustellen und • die Wirtschaftlichkeit der Baugrubenkonstruktionen zu verbessern.

The definitive guide to unsaturated soil— from the world's experts on the subject This book builds upon and substantially updates Fredlund and Rahardjo's publication, Soil Mechanics for Unsaturated Soils, the current standard in the field of unsaturated soils. It provides readers with more thorough coverage of the state of the art of unsaturated soil behavior and better reflects the manner in which practical unsaturated soil engineering problems are solved. Retaining the fundamental physics of unsaturated soil behavior presented in the earlier book, this new publication places greater emphasis on the importance of the "soil-water characteristic curve" in solving practical engineering problems, as well as the quantification of thermal and moisture boundary conditions based on the use of weather data. Topics covered include: Theory to Practice of Unsaturated Soil Mechanics Nature and Phase Properties of Unsaturated Soil State Variables for Unsaturated Soils Measurement and Estimation of State Variables Soil-Water Characteristic Curves for Unsaturated Soils Ground Surface Moisture Flux Boundary Conditions Theory of Water Flow through Unsaturated Soils Solving Saturated/Unsaturated Water Flow Problems Air Flow through Unsaturated Soils Heat Flow Analysis for Unsaturated Soils Shear Strength of Unsaturated Soils Shear Strength Applications in Plastic and Limit Equilibrium Stress-Deformation Analysis for Unsaturated Soils Solving Stress-Deformation Problems with Unsaturated Soils Compressibility and Pore Pressure Parameters Consolidation and Swelling Processes in Unsaturated Soils Unsaturated Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice is essential reading for geotechnical engineers, civil engineers, and undergraduate- and graduate-level civil engineering students with a focus on soil mechanics.
