ABOUT THE BOOK

                 The Foundation Engineering Handbook written by Manjrikar Gunaratne, a professor of civil engineering at the University of South Florida, is published by Taylor and Francis Group.

                  This handbook contains some of the most recent developments in theoretical and applied foundation engineering in addition to classical foundation design methods. The inclusion of recent developments mostly enriches the classical design concepts in Chapters 3–7, 10, and 11. It also enables the reader to update his or her knowledge of new modeling concepts applicable to foundation design. Most recently developed in situ testing methods discussed in detail in Chapter 2 certainly familiarize the reader with state-of-the-art techniques adopted in site testing. In addition, modern ground stabilization techniques introduced in Chapter 12 by an experienced senior engineer in Hayward-Baker Inc., a leading authority in site improvement work across North America, provides the reader with the knowledge of effective site improvement techniques that are essential for foundation design. Innovative and widely used methods of testing pile foundations are introduced with numerical illustrations in Chapters 2 and 7. LRFD designs in Chapters 3 and 6 and the design of retaining structures with geogrids included in Chapter 10 are unique features of this foundation engineering handbook. For the benefit of the reader, the basic and advanced soil mechanics concepts needed in foundation design are elaborated with several numerical examples in Chapter 1.
