The Engineering of Foundationspresents the subject of foundation engineering in a logical framework, in a natural sequence and in as simple a presentation as possible. The text emphasizes conceptual understanding and avoids and an oversimplistic treatment of the subject. Estimation of soil parameters for use in design is given high priority. Users will find an up-to-date text that relates theory to real world practices and integrates concepts and continuity of examples across chapters. Illustrations, applications and hands-on examples are provided, to explain these critical foundations. Explains the "why". One reviewer notes, "This is the Holtz and Kovacs of Foundations!!"
