An Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering offers a descriptive, elementary introduction to geotechnical engineering with applications to civil engineering practice.

“The authors do a nice job in presenting significant discussion in theory and background information. I prefer this approach to the more mechanical cookbook approach in which equations and methods are emphasized over theory. If the students are committed and dedicated to reading the text, they will find a wealth of useful information that compliments classroom lectures, and homework problems.” -Robert Mokwa, MONTANA STATE UNIVERSITY

“The text provides information that goes beyond a typical undergraduate soil mechanics course. In fact I tell my students that ‘this is a text that you can retain for future use and reference, whether you choose to go to graduate school or engineering practice.’ Plus, it’s written with a good sense of humor.” -Khaled Sobhan, FLORIDA ATLANTIC UNIVERSITY

“Writing is excellent, engaging, and helpful. It anticipates well the questions forming in the average student’s mind.” -Trevor Smith, PORTLAND STATE UNIVERSITY
