Aperçu du document
Craig’s Soil Mechanics
Now in its eighth edition, this bestselling text continues to blend clarity of explanation with
depth of coverage to present students with the fundamental principles of soil mechanics. From
the foundations of the subject through to its application in practice, Craig’s Soil Mechanics
provides an indispensable companion to undergraduate courses and beyond.
Revised and fully reworked throughout, several chapters have been significantly extended
or had fresh topics added to ensure this new edition reflects more than ever the demands of
civil engineering today.
New to this edition:
●● Rewritten throughout in line with Eurocode 7, with reference to other international stand-
●● Restructuring of the book into two major sections dealing with both the basic concepts
and theories in soil mechanics and the application of these concepts within geotechnical
●● Brand new topics include limit analysis techniques, in-situ testing and foundation systems,
plus additional material on seepage, soil stiffness, the critical state concept and foundation
●● Enhanced pedagogy including a comprehensive glossary of terms, start-of-chapter learning
objectives, end-of-chapter summaries, and visual examples of real-life engineering equipment to help students approaching the subject for the first time.
●● An extensive companion website comprising innovative spreadsheet tools for tackling
complex problems, digital datasets to accompany worked examples and problems, solutions
to end-of-chapter problems, weblinks, extended case studies, and more.
Craig’s Soil Mechanics is the definitive text for civil engineering students worldwide.
