|a"An upper level undergraduate and begging graduate-level textbook, this new edition of a bestseller includes new sections on the AASHRO Soil Classification System and Soil Compaction as well as along with several recently developed empirical relationships for estimation of maximum dry unit weight based on compaction energy. It covers the procedures to estimate stress and displacement based on the theory of elasticity for place strain and three-dimensional cases and solutions for the determination of vertical stress due to various loading conditions on Westergaard-type material have been added. Several new example problems have been added to every chapter"--|cProvided by publisher.
內容簡介top Advanced Soil Mechanics 簡介 What New in the Fourth Edition:The fourth edition further examines the relationships between the maximum and minimum void ratios of granular soils and adds the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) soil classification system. It summarizes soil compaction procedures and Proctor compaction tests. It introduces new sections on vertical stress due to a line load of finite length, vertical stress in Westergaard material due to point load, line load of finite length, circularly loaded area, and rectangularly loaded area. The text discusses the fundamental concepts of compaction of clay soil for the construction of clay liners in waste disposal sites as they relate to permeability and adds new empirical correlations for overconsolidation ratio and compression index for clay soils. It provides additional information on the components affecting friction angle of granular soils, drained failure envelopes, and secant residual friction angles of clay and clay shale. Contains 11 chapters Provides new example problems Includes SI units throughout the text Uses a methodical approach The author adds new correlations between field vane shear strength, preconsolidation pressure, and overconsolidation ratio of clay soils. He also revises and expands information on elastic settlement of shallow foundations, adds a precompression with sand grains, and presents the parameters required for the calculation of stress at the interface of a three-layered flexible system.An ideal resource for beginning graduate students, the fourth edition of Advanced Soil Mechanics further develops the basic concepts taught in undergraduate study by presenting a solid foundation of the fundamentals of soil mechanics.This book is suitable for students taking an introductory graduate course, and it can also be used as a reference for practicing professionals.
