Description - Introductory Geotechnical Engineering by Hsai-Yang Fang
The environmental effect on the behaviour of the soil-water system is difficult to explain using classical mechanical concepts alone. This book integrates and blends traditional theory with particle-energy-field theory in order to provide a framework for the analysis of soil behaviour under varied environmental conditions. Rock mechanics, soil mechanics and hydrogeology are all covered, with an emphasis on environmental factors. Soil properties and classifications are included, as well as issues relating to contaminated land. Both SI and Imperial units are used, and an accompanying website provides example problems and solutions. This book explains the why and how of geotechnical engineering in an environmental context. Students of civil, geotechnical and environmental engineering, and practitioners unfamiliar with the particle-energy-field concept, will find the book's novel approach helps to clarify the complex theory behind geotechnics.
