This revised and updated edition of Advanced Soil Mechanics presents a step-by-step guide to all aspects of the subject to students, and addresses a wide range of topics in a logical and extensively illustrated approach, including: grain-size distribution; the nature of water in clay; consistency of cohesive soils; weight-volume relationships; soil classification systems; concepts of elasticity; equations of equilibrium.

The book is illustrated with mathematical derivations and clear diagrams, problems and examples are provided throughout and each chapter concludes with a list of references for further in-depth review or research. Advanced Soil Mechanics is valuable not only for upper-level undergraduate and graduate level students of civil engineering, engineering mechanics, and soil mechanics, but also as a reference for professionals working in these fields.
