Here is the listing of Best reference books on Soil Structure Interaction.
|1. “Analytical and Computer Methods in Foundation Engineering” by J.E. Bowles
Book Review: This is a very good textbook for senior courses in foundation analysis and design. The book includes IBM disk that contains various programs stacked together thereby carrying out the analysis of pile group and illustrating procedures for analysis of lateral piles. The book also carries out analysis of bearing capacity along with horizontal and vertical loads. The book also uses uniform linear pressure concept for assuring the bearing capacity. The book also stresses on the geotextiles for retaining walls and soil nailing.
|2. “Numerical Methods in Geotechnical Engineering” by C.S. Desai and J.T. Christian|
|3. “Elastic Analysis of Soil-foundation Interaction” by A. P. S. Selvadurai
Book Review: The book focuses on the analysis of the interaction between structural foundations and soil media support. The book also details the soil foundation interaction problems, soil response models for soil foundation interaction analysis, plane strain analysis and infinitely long beam. The book also discusses three dimensional effects in the infinite beam problem, elastic models of soil behavior and time dependent behavior of soil masses. The book also deals with the determination of soil parameters, experimental investigations and case studies.
