There are lots of great material on Foundation Engineering subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Foundation Engineering that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Foundation Engineering books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Foundation Engineering subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Foundation Engineering and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Foundation Engineering books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Foundation Engineering.
|1. “Modern Geotechnical Engineering” by A. Singh
Book Review: The book contains a separate chapter called soil engineering experiments that provides the description of laboratory tests that are carried out at the undergraduate level. The book covers tests on moisture content determination, specific gravity determination, particle size determination, consistency limits, permeability determination, consolidation test compaction tests, field density and swelling pressure determination.
|2. “Principles of Foundation Engineering” by B.M. Das
Book Review: This book maintains a perfect balance between the current research and practical field applications thereby making it one of the most popular textbook in foundation engineering courses. The book contains numerous worked out examples and diagrams that is very useful for students with theory and problem solving skills. The book also introduces the fundamental concepts and foundation analysis design applications to the students of civil engineering. The author emphasizes on correct application of theories and analysis to soil evaluation, foundation design and field experience.
