9780470581520: Foundation Engineering for Expansive Soils

Your guide to the design and construction of foundations on expansive soils

Foundation Engineering for Expansive Soils fills a significant gap in the current literature by presenting coverage of the design and construction of foundations for expansive soils. Written by an expert author team with nearly 70 years of combined industry experience, this important new work is the only modern guide to the subject, describing proven methods for identifying and analyzing expansive soils and developing foundation designs appropriate for specific locations.

Expansive soils are found worldwide and are the leading cause of damage to structural roads. The primary problem that arises with regard to expansive soils is that deformations are significantly greater than in non-expansive soils and the size and direction of the deformations are difficult to predict. Now, Foundation Engineering for Expansive Soils gives engineers and contractors coverage of this subject from a design perspective, rather than a theoretical one. Plus, they'll have access to case studies covering the design and construction of foundations on expansive salts from both commercial and residential projects.

  • Provides a succinct introduction to the basics of expansive soils and their threats
  • Includes information on both shallow and deep foundation design
  • Profiles soil remediation techniques, backed-up with numerous case studies
  • Covers the most commonly used laboratory tests and site investigation techniques used for establishing the physical properties of expansive soils

If you're a practicing civil engineer, geotechnical engineer or contractor, geologist, structural engineer, or an upper-level undergraduate or graduate student of one of these disciplines, Foundation Engineering for Expansive Soils is a must-have addition to your library of resources.

From the Back Cover:

AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF FOUNDATIONS ON EXPANSIVE SOILS

Written for engineers, contractors, and geologists, Foundation Engineering for Expansive Soils is a comprehensive resource that covers the design and construction of foundations for expansive soils. Noted experts John D. Nelson, Kuo Chieh Chao, Daniel D. Overton, and Erik J. Nelson describe proven methods for identifying and analyzing expansive soils and the development of foundation designs that are appropriate for specific locations. Written to be a practical resource, Foundation Engineering for Expansive Soils takes a design perspective, founded on rigorous engineering principles. In addition, the text includes a wealth of case studies that cover the design and construction of foundations on expansive soils for both commercial and residential projects.

Foundation Engineering for Expansive Soils provides a succinct introduction to the basics of expansive soils, including how to avoid common mistakes and detailed information on both shallow and deep foundation design. The authors also profile soil remediation techniques and cover the most commonly used laboratory tests and site investigation methods used for establishing the physical properties of expansive soils.

The authors have performed hundreds of forensic investigations on expansive soils. This important resource draws on their real-world experiences developing new ideas and methods of analyses that have been successfully applied to foundation design.
