Overview

The leading resource for foundation engineering courses, PRINCIPLES OF FOUNDATION ENGINEERING maintains a careful balance of current research and practical field applications as it introduces civil engineering students to the fundamental concepts and applications of foundation analysis design. In the eighth edition, author Braja M. Das continues to emphasize the judgment needed to properly apply theories and analysis to the evaluation of soils and foundation design. A wealth of worked out examples and figures show students how to do the work they will perform as civil engineers, while end-of-chapter homework problems help them hone their problem-solving skills.
