A short course in foundation engineering

Author: N E Simons; Bruce Keith Menzies
Publisher: London : Thomas Telford, 2000.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : English : 2nd edView all editions and formats
Summary:
Although there are now a large number of computer programmes for solving all sorts of foundation design problems, the need to check these outputs by 'hand-calculation' has become vitally important. This book concentrates on getting the fundamentals right and then using them in practical applications.
