FUNDAMENTALS OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING, 5E presents the essential components of two market-leading engineering texts in one powerful combined course. The text offers a concise blend of critical information from Braja Dasâ€™ leading PRINCIPLES OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING and PRINCIPLES OF FOUNDATION ENGINEERING. This valuable, cohesive book focuses on the fundamental concepts of both soil mechanics and foundation engineering without the distraction of excessive details or cumbersome alternatives. A wealth of worked-out examples and useful supporting figures help your students master key concepts and gain essential problem-solving skills. Prestigious authors Das and Sivakugan carefully balance todayâ€™s most current research with practical field applications in a proven approach that has made Dasâ€™ books undisputed leaders in the field. A wealth of accompanying resources, including MindTap, help reinforce the geotechnical engineering skills your students need.
