There are lots of great material on Soil Mechanics subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Soil Mechanics 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 Soil Mechanics books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Soil Mechanics subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Soil Mechanics and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Soil Mechanics 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.
