Book Description

Braja M. Das' Fifth Edition of PRINCIPLES OF FOUNDATION ENGINEERING maintains the careful balance of current research and practical field applications that has made it the leading text in foundation engineering courses. Featuring a wealth of worked-out examples and figures that help students with theory and problem-solving skills, the book introduces civil engineering students to the fundamental concepts and application of foundation analysis design. Throughout, Das emphasizes the judgment needed to properly apply the theories and analysis to the evaluation of soils and foundation design as well as the need for field experience.

5Great textbook for studying for PE Exam
By Chantal
I purchased this textbook for the Civil Engineering PE Exam, Geotechnical depth. Along with Das's basic Geotechnical Engineering book, I feel I am well prepared for the afternoon portion of the exam. I'm studying alone and this book is very simple to understand, which helps a lot when you don't have a professor on hand to clarify the text for you.

Answers are provided for all odd problems in the book, and there are many example problems. Very helpful.
