Foundation Engineering in Difficult Ground discusses the different principles and practices involved in the building of foundations in different soil types, especially on difficult ground.
The book covers topics such as the classification of soil; silts, loess, and tills; the mechanical behavior of rocks; and the engineering aspects of rock weathering, engineering classification of rock masses, and the engineering performance of rocks. Also covered in the book are topics such as models for the mechanical behaviour of soil; computer predictions in difficult soil conditions; foundations on rock, settlement foundations, and the relation of earth movement on foundations; ground treatment; and the appraisal of stability conditions in different soil conditions.
The text is recommended for engineers who are in need of a guide in the establishment of foundations in different soil conditions, especially those in difficult ones.
