Lecturer and Civil Engineer, C.R. Scott, provides a logical and comprehensive text book specially designed for undergraduates of civil engineering. It should also prove useful to those involved in foundation work and earth structures. Aware of the pitfalls of civil engineering, Scott's approach is to describe, explain, and alert students fully so that civil engineering errors are avoided. To this end, he introduces the student to the complete range of relevant issues (pore pressure, stress, and suction; permeability and seepage; consolidation and shear strength etc.) together with a more detailed explanation of the way different soils behave and respond under different conditions. The author encourages students to take a more critical look at traditional methods of analysis and design, and appreciate the singular importance of geology and geotechnical processes. Site investigations and working examples are provided to keep the emphasis on applying what has been learnt. Charts and tables, formulae and technical drawings elucidate and give greater depth of understanding, and there are site investigations and working examples. This revised and expanded edition makes use of the SI system.
