Summary

This reference on all aspects of piling is focused on the practical work involved. It is uniquely focused on the conditions in Asia. Some of these relate to soil conditions, such as rocks deeply affected by tropical weathering, others to working conditions, such as climate, safety standards, materials available, and staff education. The reader is guided from site investigation through to design, and to construction and testing, and is presented with new ideas. A straightforward writing style, wealth of illustrations supporting the theory, and numerous references to real case studies make this an invaluable information source. It draws on the author's thirty years of experience in Asia, and will also serve engineers who are working on residual soil engineering in regions such as Africa and South America.
