Description

For undergraduate/graduate-level foundation engineering courses.

Covers the subject matter thoroughly and systematically, while being easy to read. Emphasizes a thorough understanding of concepts and terms before proceeding with analysis and design, and carefully integrates the principles of foundation engineering with their application to practical design problems.

Features

    • Teaches students how to design both kinds of retaining structures. Ex.___

  • NEW - A chapter on reliability-based design.
    • Discusses LRFD as it effects both the structural and geotechnical aspects of design. Includes AASHTO load and resistance factors. Ex.___

  • NEW - Reorganized chapters on deep foundations.
    • Provides more systematic coverage. Ex.___

  • NEW - Revised coverage of laterally loaded deep foundations.
    • Provides more emphasis on p-y analyses. Ex.___

  • NEW - Expanded discussions of dynamic methods of deep foundation analysis.
    • Explains the principles and uses of these methods, and includes newer methods, such as Statnamic tests. Ex.___

  • NEW - More emphasis on the differences between strength requirements and serviceability requirements.
    • Makes the subject more consistent with LRFD design methodologies. Ex.___

  • NEW - Questions and practice problems—Interspersed throughout each chapter.
    • Gives students the opportunity to practice the material before going on with the rest of the chapter. Ex.___

  • NEW - Coordinated coverage—With the text Geotechnical Engineering: Principles and Practices.
    • Systematic coverage of topics with consistent notation and problem-solving methods. These items are reviewed in Chapters 3 and 4, so students who used another geotechnical engineering text can still use Foundation Design. Ex.___

  • A multidisciplinary approach—Integrates geotechnical, structural, and construction aspects of foundation engineering.
    • Helps students understand the importance of all three areas, and how they impact each other. Ex.___

  • A strong presentation of basic principles and the underlying assumptions.

    • Helps students engaged in comprehensive design projects—especially in completing the foundation design aspects of such projects. Ex.___

  • Carefully integrated use of computer software—Accompanying software (available on the Prentice Hall http site) has been developed specifically for educational purposes. It is easy to use and is integrated with the text and homework problems.
    • Once students have mastered the principles and can do the analysis by hand; the software helps them do homework more quickly and easily, and permits them to explore parametric studies that would be too cumbersome to do by hand. Ex.___

  • Extensive use of example problems.
    • Illustrates the analysis and design techniques. Ex.___

  • Questions and Practice Problems—Includes numerical problem solving, definitions, and short essay questions.
  • Comprehensive problems at the end of each chapter.
