Book Description

The Engineering of Foundations incorporates theory into real world practice.

The text emphasizes conceptual understanding and avoids an oversimplistic treatment of the subject. Estimation of soil parameters for use in design is given high priority. Users will find an up-to-date text that relates theory to real world practices and integrates concepts and continuity of examples across chapters. Illustrations, applications and hands-on examples are provided. The text not only explains the "how", but also the "why".

5Awesome foundations book
By Amazon Customer
Definitely a better book for graduate students and practicing engineers than Das' book. I do not recommend for undergraduates though. Has useful tips and examples based on software programs. The theory is solid and the practical aspect is exactly based on the references you would use in a company. To simply put it, if you're a geotechnical engineer, you must have a copy.
