Preface of Principles of Foundation Engineering

Soil mechanics and foundation engineering have developed rapidly during the last fifty plus years. Intensive research and observation in both 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 eighth edition. It is intended primarily for use by undergraduate civil engineering students. The use of this text throughout the world has increased greatly over the years. It has also been translated into several languages. New and improved materials that have been published in various geotechnical engineering journals and conference proceedings that are consistent with the level of understanding of the intended users have been incorporated into each edition of the text.

Based on the useful comments received from the reviewers for preparation of this edition, changes have been made from the seventh edition. The text now has sixteen chapters compared to fourteen in the seventh edition. There is a small introductory chapter (Chapter 1) at the beginning. The chapter on allowable bearing capacity of shallow foundations has been divided into two chapters—one on estimation of vertical stress due to superimposed loading and the other on elastic and consolidation settlement of shallow foundations. The text has been divided into four major parts for consistency and continuity, and the chapters have been reorganized.
