Publisher Description

The fourth edition of this respected work provides a new examination of the approaches to understanding soil behaviour and the presentation of theories and models to be used in solving practical problems and design. The unifying approach of critical state theory plays a more central role in this new edition. Recognizing the increasing importance of computer-based information, the fourth edition includes a CD-ROM in each text. The CD-ROM contains reference files, dictionaries, learning assignments and self-testing quizzes. NEW! Revised treatment of the soil models used to explain the study of volume change and strength in Chapter 6; the description and use of Newmark's chart has been removed NEW! Rewritten material on shear strength (Chapter 7) and settlement (Chapter 10) reflects new emphasis on critical state theory *NEW! CD-ROM learning tool
