Description

Product Description

Intended as an introductory text in soil mechanics, the eighth edition of Das, PRINCIPLES OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING offers an overview of soil properties and mechanics together with coverage of field practices and basic engineering procedure. Background information needed to support study in later design-oriented courses or in professional practice is provided through a wealth of comprehensive discussions, detailed explanations, and more figures and worked out problems than any other text in the market.

Review

"The presentation of the book is excellent. I particularly like the fact that many of the example problems are presented in the practical context. This definitely helps engage the students and improve their understanding. This is based on my experience using this textbook and my students'' feedback."

"The presentation in the book is easy to follow. The book is written in a way that students can read and understand the presented concepts without difficulties. Illustrations in the book are very clear and have higher quality than those of other books. The problems at the end of each chapter cover all the concepts in that chapter. These problems are similar to those covered by the National Fundamental Engineering (FE) Exam. That is why students prefer to use this book for the preparation of the FE exam."

"The book is well written, clearly and precisely, as compared with other soil mechanics books. Students could take a big advantage using this book for independent study."

I''ve nearly gone through the entire book and it''s fairly easy to understand. There are good examples which really help you understand the topic and to complete the chapter problems. However, compared to previous editions, this book hasn''t changed much. Most of the chapters are the same and have only been organized differently. Some of the problems have changed but they are nearly the same. That being said, I''m only knocking off 1 star because nowadays that''s what all book manufacturers do. This is a decent book to learn the principles of geotechnical engineering (as the title says) and should be for years to come.

Problems are in metric units

I would suggest buying the more expensive version if you''re using it for hw problems.

As mentioned in the description, this book appears to have exactly the same content as the non-international version. Even the end-of-chapter problems appear to be identical with the same units and everything. The only thing that appears to be different is that the book is in black-in-white instead of the multi-tone blue highlights throughout the regular version. With that being the only change, I am more than happy to use an international version copy for a fraction of the price.

Sorry I have no comments on the content. It is a required book for a class...I hope it will be usable.

seems to cover the topics alright, tons of equations though. it''s readable, which is an important reason why it''s a good text. could use a few improvements, but all in all it conveys the message well
