In this age of increasing specialism, it is important that the engineer responsible for the safe design of structures maintains an all-round knowledge of the art and science of foundation design. In keeping with the aims and aspirations of the original authors, this second edition of the Structural Foundation Designers’ Manual provides an up-to-date reference book, for the use of structural and civil engineers involved in the foundation design process. The inspiration provided by Bill Curtin who was the driving force behind the practical approach and no-nonsense style of the original book, has not been sacrificed and the book continues to provide assistance for the new graduate and the experienced design engineer in the face of the myriad choices available when selecting a suitable foundation for a tricky structure on difficult ground.
