I have spent this text behind in 2007 like the student. I have been now the geotechnical engineer partorisca on 5 years and I still inform his in the daily base. (My copy is covered in of the impressions of muddy thumb!) After active read several books of mechanics of the earth (Smith, Atkinson, etc.) Ossia still my preferred.

Written for Academics partorisca Academics, any a lot of the friendly user. It ignores Has detail explanations that does not have to that it has been ignored, those results the time costuming and studio of slow progress. This in spite of covers in detail scientific the plot of geotechnical process.

A brilliant tool. A beauty of earths is encapsulated in this comprehensible exposes'. Those of you the one who feels that a studio of the earths in such detail would owe that be some half excluyente of engineers-think again. Like an archaeologist, has found this fantastically crafted do both informative and inspiring. Now I see my half acting in of the so many different ways! I have known whenever the muck was fresh but has had any idea that the muck could be this sexy!

Formed: Paperback Ossia the short but the sweet book that detail all a fundamentals of geology of engineering. To the each one to which likes him the propagation of 2 pages gives the concise and information dense overview of the subject particular (and almost all some the main subjects are covered). A text is illustrated fantastically throughout in colour fill with intelligible diagrams, tables and figures. In my opinion ossia a perfect core -text for the university course in geology of engineering and would have to that be in a shelf of book of the each Geologist of Engineering of English tongue to adapt them of a basics.

A good account presented of all a basics of geology of engineering of some types of basic rock and his characteristic by means of the technicians of coastal engineering, evaluation of the earth and the investigation of place has related subjects. Well developed and has noted the sketch and the photos illustrate some salient points throughout and a fashion partorisca write is precise and to a point. Resorted excellent partorisca Of the-students of Level and Univeristy students of level as it drives of description.

Ossia An excellent book . I have been using he partorisca a year spent with students at all phases of MEng and MSc. Very useful. To the to students likes of too much.

A sooner reviewer there is not remarked that an author has changed that example of a Undrained tries (in a leading edition) to the CONSOLIDATED Undrained test in a 9th edition. I imagine that a reason an example has been changed is partorisca reflect a progress this is to be do in some last few years in ours comprising of like this earths shear. Today it is amply he accepted it that phi undrained is always the same to 0. Of a shear envelope is bent, a test can has not been possibly has spent is gone in of the terms of total stress, and for this some readings of a test owe that be in of the effective terms (although any pwp the readings given). I.et. An example is corrected.

A 9th Edition is an excellent book . It is extremely a lot structured and writing and one comprising of mechanics of earth quite sincere. Like another reviewer, use a book for all our students and a material of on-line support is very useful. Also a book is for far a better in a phase to explain like this to use Eurocode 7 in geotechnical creation. A good book, highly recommend it.

First time when I have seen this book, look partorisca be in general the good book, although it goes downhill in some parts of a book.
As I have decided to buy this book.
But when I recived a book and read he by means of, has found there looks partorisca be errors or deceptions in some parts of a chapter have appointed esoye force of earths'.

Thinks tip deceive representative. There are other odd explanations in shear forces that quell'concealed.

A lot strangely, sooner editon of this book (p. p.ej. 7th, and.) Look partorisca be better in explaning shear concepts by force that this 9th edition.

That he he coming to this?

======================
Following the commentary modified has been added in 7th May, 2015 :

after reading the description of another person of this book, felt that I have to that add some explanation in that I has wanted to say.

That has wanted to say was that Ej. 4.6 Of 9th and. In this book - when compared to example very alike, Ex 3.4 in 7th and. Of a same book for an author - looks to be wrong or so only the deception.

A reason because it thinks that Ej. 4.6 Of 9th and. In this book is worng is that a mohr the circles in this example is 'TOTAL' tress mohr circles, then , a shear the parameters by force have related to these mohr the circles were to be c and phi, but in an Ex 4.6 some parameters by force of uses of author this and phi', which is related to stress 'EFFECTIVE' mohr circles, any one the 'TOTAL' STRESS mohr circles. For this reason, think a Ej. 4.6 it Looks to be the deception.

Reason am very poor in writng my opinion in english, chair in that...
