ABOUT THE BOOK

                 Principles of Foundation Engineering written by Braja M Das is published by Cengage Learning, USA.

             The use of this text throughout the world has increased greatly over the years; it also has been translated into several languages. New and improved materials that have been published in various geotechnical engineering journals and conference proceedings have been incorporated into each edition of the text.
            Principles of Foundation Engineering is intended primarily for undergraduate civil engineering students. The first chapter,on Geotechnical Properties of Soil,reviews the topics covered in the introductory soil mechanics course, which is a prerequisite for the foundation engineering course. The text is composed of fourteen chapters with examples and problems, and an answer section for selected problems. The chapters are mostly devoted to the geotechnical aspects of foundation design. Both Systéime International (SI) units and English units are used in the text. Because the text introduces the application of fundamental concepts of foundation analysis and design to civil engineering students, the mathematical derivations are not always presented; instead, just the final form of the equation is given. A list of references for further information and study is included at the end of each chapter. Each chapter contains many example problems that will help students understand the application of the equations and graphs. For better understanding and visualization of the ideas and field practices, about thirty new photographs have been added in this edition. A number of practice problems also are given at the end of each chapter. Answers to some of these problems are given at the end of the text. 

The following is a brief overview of the changes from the sixth edition.
  1. In Chapter 1 on Geotechnical Properties of Soil, new sections on liquidity index and activity have been added. The discussions on hydraulic conductivity of clay, relative density, and the friction angle of granular soils have been expanded. 
  2. Expanded treatment of the weathering process of rocks is given in Chapter 2, Natural Soil Deposits and Subsoil Exploration In Chapter 3 (Shallow Foundations: Ultimate Bearing Capacity), a new case study on bearing capacity failure in soft saturated clay has been added. Also included is the reduction factor method for estimating the ultimate bearing capacity of eccentrically loaded strip foundations on granular soil. 
  3. Chapter 4, Ultimate Bearing Capacity of Shallow Foundations: Special Cases, has new sections on the ultimate bearing capacity of weaker soil underlain by a stronger soil, the seismic bearing capacity of foundations at the edge of a granular slope, foundations on rocks, and the stress characteristics solution for foundations located on the top of granular slopes. 
  4. Stress distribution due to a point load and uniformly loaded circular and rectangular areas located on the surface of a Westergaard-type material has been added to Chapter 5 on Allowable Bearing Capacity and Settlement. Also included in this chapter is the procedure to estimate foundation settlement based on Pressuremeter test results. 
  5. Lateral earth pressure due to a surcharge on unyielding retaining structures is now included in Chapter 7 (Lateral Earth Pressure). Also included in this chapter is the solution for passive earth pressure on a retaining wall with inclined back face and horizontal granular backfill using the method of triangular slices. 
  6. Chapter 8 on Retaining Walls has a new case study. A more detailed discussion is provided on the design procedure for geogrid-reinforced retaining walls. 
  7. Chapter 9 on Sheet Pile Walls has an added section on the holding capacity of plate anchors based on the stress characteristics solution. 
  8. Two case studies have been added to the chapter on Braced Cuts (Chapter 10). • The chapter on Pile Foundations (Chapter 11) has been thoroughly reorganized for better understanding. 
  9. Based on recent publications, new recommendations have been made to estimate the load-bearing capacity of drilled shafts extending to rock (Chapter 12).
