ABOUT THE BOOK

                   Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice, written by KARL TERZAGHI ( Late Professor of the Practice of Civil Engineering, Harvard University, Lecturer and Research Consultant in Civil Engineering, University of Illinois ), RALPH B PECK ( Professor of Foundation Engineering, Emeritus, University of Illinois), GHOLAMREZA MESRI (Professor of Civil Engineering, University of Illinois) is published by A Wiley-Interscience Publication, John Wiley and Sons Inc. 

                    Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice, is a comprehensive book for engineering students and others who have opted for the subject in various courses. It comprises of basic concepts in the subject explained in simple and lucid language for better comprehension. A large number of illustrations are included to enable better understanding and visualize different concepts.

                    This book is one of the best-known and most respected books in geotechnical engineering. In its third edition, it presents both theoretical and practical knowledge of soil mechanics in engineering. It features expanded coverage of vibration problems, mechanics of drainage, passive earth pressure, and consolidation.



ABOUT THE AUTHOR

                  Karl von Terzaghi (October 2,1883–October 25,1963) was an Austrian civil engineer and geologist known as the "father of soil mechanics" . In 1883, Karl von Terzaghi was born the first child of Army Lieutenant-Colonel Anton von Terzaghi and Amalia Eberle in Prague, in what is now the Czech Republic. Upon his father's retirement from the army, the family moved to Graz, Austria. The American Society of Civil Engineers established in 1960 the Karl Terzaghi Award to an "author of outstanding contributions to knowledge in the fields of soil mechanics, subsurface and earthwork engineering, and subsurface and earthwork construction". The Terzaghi and Peck Library, which is managed by the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute, in Oslo, Norway, holds an extensive collection of his papers. The Mission Dam in British Columbia, Canada, was renamed in his honor as the Terzaghi Dam in 1965.
