Principles of Geotechnical Engineering 9th ed
Intended as an introductory text in soil mechanics.
Provide a sound overview of soil properties and mechanics together with coverage of field practices and basic engineering procedures with Das and Sobhan’s PRINCIPLES OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING, 9th Edition. This market-leading introduction is ideal for the foundational course taken by most civil engineering students. It provides the important background knowledge students need to support study in later design-oriented courses and in professional practice. The authors ensure a practical and application-oriented approach to the subject by incorporating a wealth of comprehensive discussions and detailed explanations. Figures and worked-out problems — more than in any other resource for the course — help ensure student understanding.
