Soil mechanics and foundation engineering have developed rapidly during the last fifty years. Intensive research and observation in the field and the laboratory have refined and improved the science of foundation design. Originally published in the fall of 1983 with a 1984 copyright, this text on the principles of foundation engineering is now in the seventh edition. The use of this text throughout the world has increased greatly over the years; it also has been translated into several languages. New and improved materials that have been published in various geotechnical engineering journals and conference proceedings have been incorporated into each edition of the text. Principles of Foundation Engineering is intended primarily for undergraduate civil engineering students. The first chapter, on Geotechnical Properties of Soil, reviews the topics covered in the introductory soil mechanics course, which is a prerequisite for the foundation engineering course. The text is composed of fourteen chapters with examples and problems, and an answer section for selected problems. The chapters are mostly devoted to the geotechnical aspects of foundation design. Both Systéime International (SI) units and English units are used in the text.
