Overview

Braja M. Das' PRINCIPLES OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING provides civil engineering students and professionals with an overview of soil properties and mechanics, combined with a study of field practices and basic soil engineering procedures. Through three editions, this book has distinguished itself by its exceptionally clear theoretical explanations, realistic worked examples, thorough discussions of field testing methods, and extensive problem sets - making this book a leader in its field.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The presentation of the book is excellent. I particularly like the fact that many of the example problems are presented in the practical context. This definitely helps engage the students and improve their understanding. This is based on my experience using this textbook and my students' feedback."

"The presentation in the book is easy to follow. The book is written in a way that students can read and understand the presented concepts without difficulties. Illustrations in the book are very clear and have higher quality than those of other books. The problems at the end of each chapter cover all the concepts in that chapter. These problems are similar to those covered by the National Fundamental Engineering (FE) Exam. That is why students prefer to use this book for the preparation of the FE exam."

"The book is well written, clearly and precisely, as compared with other soil mechanics books. Students could take a big advantage using this book for independent study."

Meet the Author

Dr. Braja Das is Dean Emeritus of the College of Engineering and Computer Science at California State University, Sacramento. He received his M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Iowa and his Ph.D. in the area of Geotechnical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin. He is the author of several geotechnical engineering texts and reference books and has authored more than 250 technical papers in the area of geotechnical engineering. His primary areas of research include shallow foundations, earth anchors, and geosynthetics. He is a Fellow and Life Member of the American Society of Civil Engineers, Life Member of the American Society for Engineering Education, and an Emeritus Member of the Chemical and Mechanical Stabilization Committee of the Transportation Research Board of the National Research Council (Washington D.C.). Dr. Das has received numerous awards for teaching excellence, including the AMOCO Foundation Award, AT&T Award for Teaching Excellence from the American Society for Engineering Education, the Ralph Teetor Award from the Society of Automotive Engineers, and the Distinguished Achievement Award for Teaching Excellence from the University of Texas at El Paso.

Khaled Sobhan is an Associate Professor of Civil Engineering at Florida Atlantic University. He received his M.S. degree from The Johns Hopkins University, and his Ph.D. from Northwestern University, both in the area of Geotechnical Engineering. His primary research areas include ground improvement, geotechnology of soft soils, experimental soil mechanics, and geotechnical aspects of pavement engineering. He served as the Chair of the Chemical and Mechanical Stabilization committee (AFS90) of the Transportation Research Board (2005-2011), and co-authored the TRB Circular titled Evaluation of Chemical Stabilizers: State-of-the-Practice Report (EC086). He is currently serving as an Associate Editor of ASCE Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering, and on the editorial boards of the The ASTM Geotechnical Testing Journal, Geotechnical and Geological Engineering (Springer, The Netherlands), and International Journal of Geotechnical Engineering. He is a recipient of the distinguished Award for Excellence and Innovation in Undergraduate Teaching (2006), and the Excellence in Graduate Mentoring Award (2009) from Florida Atlantic University. He has published more than 75 technical articles and reports in the area of geotechnical engineering.
