Advanced Foundation Engineering: Geotechnical Engineering Series

V N S Murthy (Author)

Advanced Foundation Engineering is the second book in the series of Geotechnical Engineering. The first book in the series is A Textbook of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering written to satisfy the requirements of undergraduate students studying geotechnical engineering as a subject. The present book goes deeper into the various aspects of Foundation Engineering. To make the book self-sufficient in all respects, certain portions of the first book have been repeated. The objective of writing this book is to bring all the relevant advanced theories on foundation engineering in a book form at one place. Many books are available on foundation engineering in advanced countries but the author has not yet come across a book based purely on the subject matter. Most of the books available are written just to satisfy certain categories of students or professional's needs. It must be understood well that foundations have to be designed to simulate field conditions. With all the efforts put in by numerous reputed research workers and designers in the field, the author has still to come across one single theory that satisfies the field conditions. If that is the case, what could be the solution? As things stand, the only way is to try a few more theories appropriate to the field conditions. It is, therefore, essential that the consultants must be conversant with the theories that are available in this field and students also must know the available approaches. It is the opinion of the author that the present book meets most of the requirements. Research work is another field of importance. The author has presented in detail his work on laterally loaded pile foundations to solve many of the problems confronted in this field. The approach is direct and simple as compared to the complicated methods proposed by many leading and well-known advocates in this field. It is the author's ardent opinion that there is always a simple solution to a complicated problem. Finally, the author wishes to convey through this book that he would be extremely happy if this book serves the purpose for which it is intended.
