Soil Mechanics: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition
Instead of fixating on formulae, Soil Mechanics: Concepts and Applications, Third Edition focuses on the fundamentals. This book describes the mechanical behaviour of soils as it relates to the practice of geotechnical engineering. It covers both principles and design, avoids complex mathematics whenever possible, and uses simple methods and ideas to build a framework to support and accommodate more complex problems and analysis.
Geotechnical engineering companies and geotechnical engineering firms take soil samples and analyze it in order to determine if the area where the structure is to be built is strong enough to support the structure. Aside from soil sampling, there are other services that the Geotechnical Engineering team should perform which include geotechnical investigations.
