Geotechnical Engineering
Established as a standard textbook for students, this new edition of 
Geotechnical Engineering 
provides a solid grounding in the mechanics of soils and soil-structureinteraction.Renato Lancellotta gives a clear presentation of the fundamental principles of soilmechanics and demonstrates how these principles are applied in practice to engineer-ing problems and geotechnical design. This is supported by numerous examples withworked solutions, clear summaries and extensive further reading lists throughout thebook.Thoroughcoverageisgiventoallclassicsoilmechanicstopicssuchasboundaryvalue problems and serviceability of structures and to topics which are often missedout of other books or covered more briefly including: the principles of continuummechanics, Critical State Theory and innovative techniques such as seismic methods.
Geotechnical Engineering 
is suitable for soil mechanics modules on undergraduatecivil engineering courses and for use as a core text for specialist graduate geotechnicalengineering students. It explores not only the basics but also several advanced aspectsof soil behaviour, and outlines principles which underpin more advanced professionalworkthereforeprovidingausefulreferenceworkforpractisingengineers.Readerswillgain a good grasp of applied mechanics, testing and experimentation, and methodsfor observing real structures.
Renato Lancellotta
is Professor of Geotechnical Engineering, Director of the Geotech-nical Laboratory and since 1990 has been Head of the Ph.D. Programme onGeotechnical Engineering at the Technical University of Torino, Italy.
