A Short Course in Foundation Engineering by N. E. Simons & B. K. Menzies

A Short Course in Foundation Engineering covers definitions and principles related to foundation engineering.
The first two chapters discuss effective stress and shear strength with regard to their definition, nature and computation or measurement. The third chapter covers the most convenient methods currently used to estimate the magnitude of the immediate or undrained settlement, and the fourth chapter outlines the methods of determining the safe bearing pressure of footings. The prediction of the settlement of structures and the factors affecting the accuracy of such predictions are discussed in the next chapter. The book concludes by considering the aspects of pile design. This last chapter covers the types of pile; piles in cohesive or granular soils and under lateral loads; the group action of piles; negative skin friction; and the testing of piles.
The book will serve as a guide to both students and practicing civil and foundation engineers.
