This book presents a set of design guidelines for various problems that practical engineers face. The author, who has been involved in geotechnical and multidisciplinary civil practical works, shares his own experience as well as that of consulting and contracting authors.  

There are many published books that briefly describe geotechnical structures and in particular the physical properties of soil, but most of them are basically presented to the experts or researchers. Few books were published for the practical engineers, but they just discuss a limited number of solutions for specific geotechnical works in a specific project or some projects. Generally, there are not many books for practical engineers, which combine various geotechnical works and present a set of design guidelines for various problems. As a result, the need for publishing this practical design book arose.

Moreover, many consulting and contracting companies, chairpersons, and consulting engineers consider their ways of design and design guidelines as a trade secret. In this book, the author breaks this rule and shares his knowledge with practical engineers. He also presents his practical experience in solving the geotechnical problems gathered from different consulting offices, engineers and contracting companies in the Middle East. To make it a cutting-edge-book, and in cooperation with the international experts and consulting bureaus, the author also combines some international solutions for global geotechnical problems using the international codes of practice.
