Foundations and Earth Structures is written primarily for anundergraduate course in foundation analysis and design. It shouldalso appeal to graduate students and practicing engineers. Thereare three primary objectives for this textbook. Firstly, to presentbasic concepts and fundamental principles that are necessary tounderstand the background of the methods employed in foundationdesign. Secondly, to inform students on the values and limitationsof popular methods of analyses in foundation engineering. Thirdly, to provide a framework for students to carry out simple foundationdesign and appreciate the design process. This is a textbook and not a design manual. Consequently, itemphasizes fundamentals rather than procedures. However, practicalprocedures, where appropriate, are included to allow students totransit into qofficeq design. The topics are sequenced so as not torush the students into design but to build a solid foundation inthe fundamentals so that they could understand the implications ofthe assumptions in the design.Thirdly, to provide a framework for students to carry out simple foundationdesign and appreciate the design process. This is a textbook and not a design manual. Consequently, itemphasizes fundamentals rather than procedures.
