The subject “Advanced Foundation Engineering” will cover various aspects of foundation engineering including soil exploration, details of shallow and deep foundations, retaining walls. Find below the best textbooks and reference books for advanced foundation engineering subjects for your studies, exam, and job interview preparations.
The soil-foundation interaction is covered along with the numerical solution techniques of beams and plates resting on elastic foundation bed. The behavior and design methods of foundation on reinforced earth are covered in this subject.
The advanced theories and design of various foundation components are covered in a logical way. The earth pressure theories for designing the retaining walls are covered. The codal provisions of the design of various types of foundations are also covered. The subject is useful to all undergraduate and postgraduate students, teachers, and practitioners.
