Product Description

Review

"The reviewer considers that Dr Knappett, in revising this classic textbook, has made a substantial additional contribution to the years of service given by Dr Craig to the civil engineering profession, in general, and the geotechnical community in particular."
―Catherine O’Sullivan, Imperial College, London, UK

"Jonathan Knappett is breathing a fresh lease of life into this old favourite with several new slants, including for the first time the design philosophy of Eurocode 7 and much new material...I propose to keep it on our list of ‘must consult’ textbooks."
―Edward Bromhead, Kingston University, UK

"Buying a copy of Craig as an undergraduate is a lifetime career investment."
―Geoffrey Blight, Witwatersrand University, South Africa

"All the background needed for those engaged in geotechnical engineering practice, foundation engineering and construction can be found in this book."
―Fred Boadu, Duke University, USA

"As a professor and civil engineering professional, I found this 8th edition of Craig’s Soil Mechanics to be everything a beginning engineering student is looking for in an introductory textbook on soil mechanics… I would highly recommend this as one of the finest textbooks on the topic of soil mechanics."
―Gregory Ohrn, Northern Arizona University, USA

"This valuable textbook is highly recommended to students, engineers, and educators in the field of geotechnical engineering."
Mehrdad Razavi, New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, USA

Essential for any civil engineering student studying geotechnics, and also useful for graduates or anyone looking to get a bit of an insight into Eurocode 7.The topics delivered are relevant and presented with example problems and design situations, the text also tackles the Eurocode 7 design philosophy and breaks it down into manageable and understandable chunks. Was essential for university and will no doubt be using it frequently in the work place.

Users of previous editions will be surprised by all the improvements and additions, but virtually no attention is paid to the multiplicity of software currenty used, a comprehensive working knowledge of which is required by all industry employers before they will consider you for a design position. Not quite as readable as previous editions.

It's a very good book. It has all the basic principles of soil mechanics, in detail with many tables, graphs and some sketches. The exercises at the end of each topic are quite useful. It doesn't take 5 stars because it doesn't have in detail the lab tests, which means that in order to have a spherical and good understanding of soil mechanics you'll need one (at least) more book, such as K. H. Head's (Volumes 1-3)

The book itself is a great book! I've used it from my library, when bought it however it was an uncoloured copy which is not consistent with legitimate copies.
