Soil Mechanics In Engineering Practice
A study of soil types and properties is made with the objective of developing a basic understanding of
soil behavior. The methods of subsurface investigation and compaction are presented. Fundamentals pertaining to permeability, seepage,
consolidation, stress distribution, and sheer strength are introduced. Settlement analysis is also presented.
