Product Description

This Text details the subject knowledge required of all structural engineers to enable them to carry out the design of simple foundations, slopes and ground improvement that do not require specialist advice.


An introduction to the design of strip, pad, raft and piled foundations is followed by a discussion of slope stability and the design of retaining walls. The practical implications of high plasticity clays on heave and settlement are followed by an introduction to ground improvement and soil-structure interaction.
