||SOIL MECHANICS: Basic Concepts and Engineering Applications
Author: A. Aysen
Description: Written with students and professors in mind and packed full of pedagogical features, this book provides integrated and comprehensive coverage of introductory and advanced topics in soil mechanics. It includes worked examples that elucidate the technical content and facilitate self-learning. The texts convenient structure enables it to be used throughout two, three, and four-year undergraduate courses. The contents are made universally applicable through the use of SI units throughout as well as frequent references to current international codes of practice and refereed research papers. The book is also suitable as a resource for practicing professional engineers.
