Analysis, Design and Construction of Foundations covers the key concepts in the analysis and design of foundation systems, balancing theory with engineering practice.

The book examines in depth the methods used for the analysis, design and construction of shallow foundations, deep foundations, excavation and lateral support systems, slope stability and stabilization and ground monitoring for proper site management. Some new and innovative foundation construction methods are also introduced. It is illustrated with case studies of failures and defects from actual construction projects.

This second edition is extensively revised and developed to include a new chapter on numerical methods in geotechnical engineering, as well as a large number of new construction drawings, project photos and construction method statements from existing projects to give the book a stronger professional application and connection to engineering practice. It also covers some new advanced theoretical concepts not covered in other texts, making it useful in both the theoretical and practical aspects. It is ideal for senior undergraduates and graduate students, academics and consulting geotechnical engineers.
