Advanced Soil Mechanics – Braja.Das – Free PDF
Soils are aggregates of mineral particles, and together with air and/or water in the void spaces, they form three-phase systems. A large portion of the earth’s surface is covered by soils, and they are widely used as construction and foundation materials. Soil mechanics is the branch of engineering that deals with the engineering properties of soils and their behavior under stress.
This book is divided into eight chapters—“Soil aggregate, plasticity, and classification,” “Stresses and strains—elastic equilibrium,” “Stresses and displacement in a soil mass,” “Pore water pressure due to undrained loading,” “Permeability and seepage,” “Consolidation,” “Shear strength of soils,” and “Settlement of foundations.”
