The Engineering of Foundations incorporates theory into real world practice.

The text emphasizes conceptual understanding and avoids an oversimplistic treatment of the subject. Estimation of soil parameters for use in design is given high priority. Users will find an up-to-date text that relates theory to real world practices and integrates concepts and continuity of examples across chapters. Illustrations, applications and hands-on examples are provided. The text not only explains the "how", but also the "why".
