Title: Geotechnics for building professionals

Ref Code: BR473
Authors: J A Charles

Abstract1: Decisions about foundations are often made by people who have only limited understanding of the engineering of the ground, Written for non-experts, and their professional advisers this book gives an overview of ground behaviour and geotechnics, focusing on shallow foundations for low-rise buildings. It brings together into a single unified format and approach guidance published by BRE over a number of years and includes numerous illustrations, an extensive glossary of terms, over 300 references and a comprehensive index.
