    Wiley India Introduction to Soil Mechanics by B‚la Bod¢, Colin Jones

    Introduction to Soil Mechanics covers the basic principles of soil mechanics and illustrates why soil properties are important and how that knowledge is applied in practical situations. With clear, detailed explanations, full coverage of Eurocode 7, well-illustrated with both practical and worked examples, plus many end-of-chapter problems, this book will be an ideal starting point for the study of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. This book complements Smith's Elements of Soil Mechanics (which is a 2nd/3rd yr honours degree text) by covering more of the soil properties and less on geotechnical design, and as such it will be more suited to foundation degree and first year undergraduate level. About the Author Béla Bodó was born in Hungary and studied at Budapest Technical University, the University of London and the Open University. He developed his expertise in Soil Mechanics during his employment with British Rail and British Coal. Colin Jones was a colleague of Béla at British Coal and studied at the University of Dundee. He has recently retired from the University of Wales, Newport where he was Programme Director for Civil Engineering provision, specializing in the area of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnics.
