This innovative soil mechanics text is intended for junior and senior civil engineering majors and contains unique lab experiments incorporating the most up-to-date material and broad range of testing methods. Features include integration of geotechnical topics with laboratory methods, numerous in-text problems and updated laboratory testing methods that meet ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) Standards. Consolidation and triaxial test data and results coverage offers a careful examination not found in other texts and the noteworthy section on the New Unified System offers easy-to-use tables and flow charts.Using computers, it is possible to solve and plot the results for many typical flow situations without introducing simplifying assumptions. The engineer can then get an approximate solution to practical problems. Although a complete treatment of anbsp;...
