Foundations and Earth Retaining Structures, Budhu

Foundations and Earth Retaining Structures PDF Download Ebook. Muni Budhu offers complete subjects for an undergraduate course in foundation analysis and design. It should also appeal to graduate students and practicing engineers. There are three primary objectives for this textbook. Firstly, to present basic concepts and fundamental principles that are necessary to understand the background of the methods employed in foundation design.

This text informs students on the values and limitations of popular methods of analyses in foundation engineering. Thirdly, to provide a framework for students to carry out simple foundation design and appreciate the design process.

This is a textbook and not a design manual. Consequently, it emphasizes fundamentals rather than procedures. However, practical procedures, where appropriate, are included to allow students to transit into "office" design. The topics are sequenced so as not to rush the students into design but to build a solid foundation in the fundamentals so that they could understand the implications of the assumptions in the design.

Problem solving cases prepare students to solve problems to test their understanding of the fundaments and to appreciate the design process. There are solved examples to show students the engineering approach to solving practical problems.

The coverage of topics in this textbook allows for a flexible curriculum whereby an instructor can sequence selected topics to structure different learning pathways depending on the educational mission of the institution. It provides students with material within traditional geotechnical engineering and progresses to modern topics that are becoming commonplace in geotechnical practice.
