Introducing the first integrated coverage of sedimentary and residual soil engineering

Despite its prevalence in under-developed parts of the United States and most tropical and sub-tropical countries, residual soil is often characterized as a mere extension of conventional soil mechanics in many textbooks. Now, with the rapid growth of construction in these regions, it is essential to gain a fuller understanding of residual soils and their properties one that's based on an integrated approach to the study of residual and sedimentary soils. One text puts this understanding well within reach: Fundamentals of Soil Mechanics for Sedimentary and Residual Soils.

The first resource to provide equal treatment of both residual and sedimentary soils and their unique engineering properties, this skill-building guide offers:




A concise introduction to basic soil mechanics, stress-strain behavior, testing, and design

In-depth coverage that spans the full scope of soil engineering, from bearing capacity and foundation design to the stability of slopes

A focus on concepts and principles rather than methods, helping you avoid idealized versions of soil behavior and maintain a design approach that is consistent with real soils of the natural world

An abundance of worked problems throughout, demonstrating in some cases that conventional design techniques applicable to sedimentary soils are not valid for residual soils

Numerous end-of-chapter exercises supported by an online solutions manual

Full chapter-ending references




Taken together, Fundamentals of Soil Mechanics for Sedimentary and Residual Soils is a comprehensive, balanced soil engineering sourcebook that will prove indispensable for practitioners and students in civil engineering, geotechnical engineering, structural engineering, and geology.
