Pile Design and Construction Rules of Thumb Book Review:

All objects and structures transfer their load either directly or indirectly to the earth. The capacity of the earth to support such loads depends on the strength and stability of the supporting soil or rock materials. Pile foundations are the part of a structure used to carry and transfer the load of the structure to the bearing ground located at some depth below ground surface. There are many texts on pile foundations. Generally, these books are complicated and difficult to understand. Easy to use and understand, this book covers virtually every subject concerning pile design, featuring techniques that do not appear in other books on the subject. The book contains design methods with real life examples on pin piles, bater piles, concrete piles, steel piles, timber piles, auger cast piles, underpinning design, seismic pile design, negative skin friction and design of Bitumen coated piles for negative skin friction and many other subjects. The book is packed with design examples, case studies and after construction scenarios are presented for the reader's benefits. This book enables the reader to come away with a complete and comprehensive understanding of the issues related to the design, installation and construction of piles. * Handy guide for engineers perparing for professional engineer (PE) exam. * Numerous design examples for sandy soils, clay soils, and seismic loadings * Methodologies and case studies for different pile types

Basics of Foundation Design Book Review:

The "Red Book" presents a background to conventional foundation analysis and design. The text is not intended to replace the much more comprehensive 'standard' textbooks, but rather to support and augment these in a few important areas, supplying methods applicable to practical cases handled daily by practising engineers and providing the basic soil mechanics background to those methods. It concentrates on the static design for stationary foundation conditions. Although the topic is far from exhaustively treated, it does intend to present most of the basic material needed for a practising engineer involved in routine geotechnical design, as well as provide the tools for an engineering student to approach and solve common geotechnical design problems.

Geotechnical Engineering Book Review:

"The main objective of this book is to provide a comprehensive pile design and construction guide to practising geotechnical engineers. The book does not require any special technical knowledge other than basic mathematical skills. The first portion deals with construction aspects of piling. In this section, pile types, pile hammers, piling techniques, problems associated with piling work and cost considerations are discussed. Second portion of the book is devoted to pile design. Pile design in different soil conditions, pile groups, pile settlement, Bitumen coated pile design and lateral loading analysis were some of the subjects discussed. Almost all the chapters in the design section contain design examples. Design examples are provided to complement the theory and the designer should not follow the examples blindly during the design process"--Bookjacket.
