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. The book is illustrated with numerous worked examples and with quick-reference tables and charts. In this new edition, the original highly acclaimed text has been extended and updated and now includes major new sections on short term and long term stability, critical state interpretation of peak strength, seismic methods for measuring ground stiffness in situ, and offshore pile design: total stress and effective stress approaches.
