Smith's Elements of Soil Mechanics Book Review:

The 9th edition maintains the content on all soilmechanics subject areas - groundwater flow, soil physicalproperties, stresses, shear strength, consolidation and settlement,slope stability, retaining walls, shallow and deep foundations,highways, site investigation - but has been expanded to include adetailed explanation of how to use Eurocode 7 for geotechnicaldesign. The key change in this new edition is the expansion of thecontent covering Geotechnical Design to Eurocode 7. Redundantmaterial relating to the now defunct British Standards - no longerreferred to in degree teaching - has been removed. Building on the success of the earlier editions, this9th edition of Smith’s Elements of SoilMechanics brings additional material on geotechnical design toEurocode 7 in an understandable format. Many worked examples areincluded to illustrate the processes for performing design to thisEuropean standard. Significant updates throughout the book have been made toreflect other developments in procedures and practices in theconstruction and site investigation industries. More workedexamples and many new figures have been provided throughout. Theillustrations have been improved and the new design and layout ofthe pages give a lift. unique content to illustrate the use of Eurocode 7 withessential guidance on how to use the now fully published code clear content and well-organised structure takes complicated theories and processes and presents them ineasy-to-understand formats book's website offers examples and downloads to furtherunderstanding of the use of Eurocode 7 ahref="http://www.wiley.com/go/smith/soil"www.wiley.com/go/smith/soil/a

Smith's Elements of Soil Mechanics Book Review:

This core undergraduate textbook for civil engineers is the first to cover the fundamental changes in the ethos of geotechnical design advocated in the now published Eurocode 7. This code will be fully adopted across Europe by 2010 and its implementation will mean a radical shift to limit state design. Ian Smith makes understanding this new approach to geotechnical design less daunting to the student with clear explanatory text, detailed illustrations and several worked examples, covering a range of topics including slope stability, retaining walls and shallow and deep foundations. Downloadable spreadsheets help to illustrate how the new Eurocode is applied and the book’s website also gives the worked solutions to self-test questions at the end of each chapter. Now in its 8th edition, this well-established textbook has been updated and re-designed with improved page layout and illustrations making it the essential user-friendly introduction to soil mechanics and geotechnical design to Eurocode 7.

Soil Mechanics Book Review:

This book is intended primarily to serve the needs of the undergraduate civil engineering student and aims at the clear explanation, in adequate depth, of the fundamental principles of soil mechanics. The understanding of these principles is considered to be an essential foundation upon which future practical experience in soils engineering can be built. The choice of material involves an element of personal opinion but the contents of this book should cover the requirements of most undergraduate courses to honours level. It is assumed that the student has no prior knowledge of the subject but has a good understanding of basic mechanics. The book includes a comprehensive range of worked examples and problems set for solution by the student to consolidate understanding of the fundamental principles and illustrate their application in simple practical situations. The International System of Units is used throughout the book. A list of references is included at the end of each chapter as an aid to the more advanced study of any particular topic. It is intended also that the book will serve as a useful source of reference for the practising engineer. In the third edition no changes have been made to the aims of the book. Except for the order of two chapters being interchanged and for minor changes in the order of material in the chapter on consolidation theory, the basic structure of the book is unaltered.

Geotechnical Modelling Book Review:

Modelling forms an implicit part of all engineering design but many engineers engage in modelling without consciously considering the nature, validity and consequences of the supporting assumptions. Derived from courses given to postgraduate and final year undergraduate MEng students, this book presents some of the models that form a part of the typical undergraduate geotechnical curriculum and describes some of the aspects of soil behaviour which contribute to the challenge of geotechnical modelling. Assuming a familiarity with basic soil mechanics and traditional methods of geotechnical design, this book is a valuable tool for students of geotechnical and structural and civil engineering as well as also being useful to practising engineers involved in the specification of numerical or physical geotechnical modelling.

Shallow Foundations Book Review:

Shallow Foundations: Discussions and Problem Solving is written for civil engineers and all civil engineering students taking courses in soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. It covers the analysis, design and application of shallow foundations, with a primary focus on the interface between the structural elements and underlying soil. Topics such as site investigation, foundation contact pressure and settlement, vertical stresses in soils due to foundation loads, settlements, and bearing capacity are all fully covered, and a chapter is devoted to the structural design of different types of shallow foundations. It provides essential data for the design of shallow foundations under normal circumstances, considering both the American (ACI) and the European (EN) Standard Building Code Requirements, with each chapter being a concise discussion of critical and practical aspects. Applications are highlighted through solving a relatively large number of realistic problems. A total of 180 problems, all with full solutions, consolidate understanding of the fundamental principles and illustrate the design and application of shallow foundations.
