Soil Mechanics Fundamentals and Applications

Soil Mechanics Fundamentals is written with the intention of providing a very

basic yet essential concept of soil mechanics to students and engineers who are learn-
ing the fundamentals of soil mechanics for the first time. This book is meant mainly

for college students who have completed key engineering science courses such as
basic calculus, physics, chemistry, statistics, mechanics of solids, and engineering
materials and are ready to enter into one of the specialty areas of civil, architectural,

and geotechnical engineering. This book is intended to provide a thorough, funda-
mental knowledge of soil mechanics in a simple and yet comprehensive way, based

on the students’ knowledge of the basic engineering sciences. Special emphasis is
placed on giving the reader an understanding of what soil is, how it behaves, why it
behaves that way, and the engineering significance of such behavior.
