I prefer this approach to the more mechanical cookbook approach in which equations and methods are emphasized over theory. If the students are committed and dedicated to reading the text, they will find a wealth of useful information that compliments classroom lectures, and homework problems.

Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering, An, 2nd Edition. Kovacs, University of Rhode Island. If You're a Student Buy this product Additional order info. Description Intended for use in the first of a two course sequence in geotechnical engineering usually taught to third- and fourth-year undergraduate civil engineering students. An Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering offers a descriptive, elementary introduction to geotechnical engineering with applications to civil engineering practice.

Preface Preface is available for download in PDF format. Focuses on the engineering classification, behavior, and properties of soils necessary for the design and construction of foundations and earth structures. Emphasis is placed on the practical, and admittedly empirical, knowledge of soil and rock behavior required by geotechnical engineers for the design and construction of foundations, embankments, and underground structures.

To strengthen the connection between the fundamental and applied, the authors indicate wherever possible the engineering significance of the property being discussed, why the property is needed, how it is determined or measured, and, to some extent, how it is actually used in specific design applications. Simple geotechnical designs are illustrated, such as determining the flow, uplift pressures, and exit gradients in 2-D seepage problems, and estimating the settlement of shallow foundations on sands and saturated clays.

New to This Edition. Chapter 3 on Geology, Landforms, and Origin of Geo-Materials is new to this edition because these topics are so critical to understanding the properties and subsequent behavior of geo-materials under various loading conditions. Stress distribution and settlement analyses, including immediate settlement, are in a new Chapter 10 to separate these practical procedures from the more basic time-rate and compressibility behavior of natural and compacted soils and rock masses described in Chapters 8 and 9.

Shear strength properties of soils and rocks are now discussed in three new chapters. Chapter 11 on the Mohr circle, failure theories, and strength testing of soil and rocks has new material on the obliquity relations and in situ tests for shear strength. Chapter 12 is an introduction to shear strength of soils and rock and is primarily suitable for undergraduate students.

More advanced topics in shear strength of soils and rocks are discussed in Chapter 13, which graduate students and practicing geotechnical engineers should find useful. New material in Chapter 12 includes multi-stage testing, in situ tests for the shear strength of sands and the strength of compacted clays, rocks, and transitional materials. The stress path method is now in Chapter 13, which also includes sections on critical state soil mechanics and an introduction to constitutive models.

Advanced topics are discussed on the shear strength of sands that start with the fundamental basis of their drained, undrained, and plane strain strengths. Chapter 13 ends with sections on the strength of unsaturated soils, properties of soils under dynamic loading, and failure theories for rock.
