Craig's Soil Mechanics

This book is intended primarily to serve the needs of the undergraduate civil engineering student and aims at the clear explanation, in adequate depth, of the fundamental
principles of soil mechanics. The understanding of these principles is considered to be
an essential foundation upon which future practical experience in geotechnical engineering can be built. The choice of material involves an element of personal opinion but
the contents of this book should cover the requirements of most undergraduate
courses to honours level as well as parts of some Masters courses.
It is assumed that the reader has no prior knowledge of the subject but has a good
understanding of basic mechanics. The book includes a comprehensive range of
worked examples and problems set for solution by the student to consolidate understanding of the fundamental principles and illustrate their application in simple
practical situations. Both the traditional and limit state methods of design are included
and some of the concepts of geotechnical engineering are introduced. The different
types of field instrumentation are described and a number of case studies are included
in which the differences between prediction and performance are discussed. References
are included as an aid to the more advanced study of any particular topic. It is
intended that the book will serve also as a useful source of reference for the practising
