ABOUT THE BOOK

            Elements of Soil Mechanics by Ian Smith, Head of the School of Engineering and the Built Environment Edinburgh Napier University, is published by John Wiley and Sons. 

             "I have provided many worked examples throughout the book that illustrate the principles of soil mechanics and the geotechnical design processes. To help the reader further, I have produced a suite of spreadsheets and documents to accompany the book that match up against many of the worked examples. These can be used to better understand the analysis being adopted in the examples, which are particularly beneficial to understanding the Eurocode 7 design examples. In addition, I have produced the solutions to the exercises at the end of the chapters as a series of portable document format (pdf) files. All of these files can be freely downloaded from www.wiley.com/go/smith/soil. Whilst the full content of both parts of Eurocode 7 has driven the bulk of the new material in this edition, I have also updated other aspects of the text throughout. This was done in recognition that some aspects of the book had become dated as a result of the introduction of new methods and standards. Furthermore, the format of the book has been improved to aid readability and thus help the reader in understanding the material. All in all, I believe that I have produced a valuable and very up-to-date textbook on soil mechanics from which the learning of the subject should be made easier.", says the author.
