This revised and updated edition of Advanced Soil Mechanics presents a step-by-step guide to all aspects of the subject to students, and addresses a wide range of topics in a logical and extensively illustrated approach, including: grain-size distribution; the nature of water in clay; consistency of cohesive soils; weight-volume relationships; soil classification systems; concepts of elasticity; equations of equilibrium. The book is illustrated with mathematical derivations and clear diagrams, problems and examples are provided throughout and each chapter concludes with a list of references for further in-depth review or research. Advanced Soil Mechanics is valuable not only for upper-level undergraduate and graduate level students of civil engineering, engineering mechanics, and soil mechanics, but also as a reference for professionals working in these fields.
Teaching soil mechanics for the last 8 years created an interest in this subject, I was searching for a book that explains the concepts in detail to a student with average IQ and found this book quite interesting.
An excellent book, no typo or spell errors like any other soil mechanics book, explains every data in detail, can be used as a ready reckoner for soil related studies.
Highly recommending this book to engineering students.
