AN INTRODUCTION TO MODERN TECHNIQUES IN GEOTECHNICAL AND FOUNDATION ENGINEERING presents in eight chapters subjects such as Special and New Foundations, New Retaining Techniques, Applications of Geosynthetics, Special Ground Improvement Methods, Advanced Field Tests and an array of Other Topics, concluding with land mark Case Histories. Between them they cover a survey of topics such as foundations for special structures and in special soils, special piles, prestressed and shell foundations, reinforced earth, ground anchors, diaphragm walls, gabions, a variety of geosynthetic products and their uses, vibro-compaction, soilcrete, dynamic compaction, vacuum consolidation, the modern dynamic pile testing, pressuremeter and dilatometer, piezocone, GPR, centrifugal testing, piled rafts, box-jacking, sanitary landfills, and fly ash disposal, besides a host of topics of modern geotechnical interest at the international level. The case histories include the foundations of the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur and Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the geotechnical intervention in the restoration of the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the construction of the Suez and Panama Canals. This book represents a first-of-its-kind attempt to put together a vast array of topics of modern geotechnical and foundation engineering interest. It is primarily addressed to the geotechnical and structural engineering communities. The book has a very encouraging Foreword, with profound insights into the theme and need of the book, by the renowned academic-consultant Professor Harry G. Poulos of Sydney, Australia.
