Edition illustrated ed
Overview"Current Practices and Future Trends in Deep Foundations" presents 26 papers on state-of-the-art developments in deep foundation design, construction, testing, and inspection which can save time, reduce cost, improve quality, and enhance performance. This "Geotechnical Special Publication" is in honor of George G. Goble, Ph.D., P.E., who has made significant contributions to and personally influenced the development of mainstream design and construction assessment tools on a worldwide basis. Topics include not only trends in deep foundations, but also the theory and international practice of wave equation analysis, dynamic and static pile testing, and non-destructive integrity testing related to deep foundations. Foundation specialists, geotechnical engineers, structural engineers, heavy construction contractors, engineering geologists, geotechnologists, and inspectors will find this book beneficial.
