This is the ultimate resource for anyone looking for a practical approach to solving geotechnical engineering problems. "Geotechnical Engineering" provides readers with comprehensive coverage all of the major geotechnical topics in the simplest possible way adopting a hands-on approach with a very strong practical bias. You will learn the material through worked examples that are representative of realistic field situations whereby geotechnical engineering principles are applied to solve real-life problems. There are a few carefully selected review exercises at the end of each chapter with answers given whenever possible. This volume also includes a number of quizzes to help you practice what you've learnt and identify areas to work on, as well as a free DVD featuring a copy of the Student edition of GeoStudio, a software program used for solving a wide range of geotechnical problems.
