Description

The second edition of this fast guide to solving common design problems in building foundations includes new material on settlements, soil modification, pole foundations, braced excavations, waterfront foundations and slope stabilization. Written for those without full training as structural or design engineers, it covers all the basics, including soil mechanics, design of common foundation elements and the relations between building and foundation design, all supported by extensive illustrations. Mathematics is kept to a minimum, being generally restricted to simple algebra, plane geometry and plane trigonometry.
