The first course in soil mechanics generally introduces the fundamental concepts and principles to civil engineering undergraduate students. “Advanced Geotechnical Engineering” goes deeper into the various aspects of soil mechanics along with bringing out the advanced theories and practical knowledge of geotechnical engineering.
The topics cover Soil formation; Soil structure; Clay mineralogy; Soil compaction, Consolidation, Shear strength, the stability of slopes, loads on pipes. The following books are beneficial for all civil engineering students and construction job aspirants to pursue a career in the construction industry.
