Introduction to Geotechnical Engineering, An, 2nd Edition

I bought the book for my Intro to Geotechnical Engineering, a class I was not particularly interested in taking, and have found this textbook to be a decent text book. It’s very wordy, though it does have some good use of illustrations and charts.

I’ve found that it doesn’t really lend itself to being skimmed over. There are no summaries, and my book is printed entirely in black and white I have an international edition, so it may be colored in the U. This makes the book a bit harder to sift through to find important information quickly. The book is does a fairly good job of being clear overall.


If you sit down and read a chapter start to finish, you’ll probabl y be well versed on the subject.

However, chapters are regularly a surplus of 40 pages each which if pretty daunting for textbook reading at least in my opinion. I’ve read textbooks that were better organized and clearer, but this kovcs is still pretty good. Book is awesome really helped with soil mechanics at UNSW. Nothing to dislike book is pretty through.

Would recommend buying for soils at UNSW. Skip to main content. Sheahan and Robert D. HoltzHardcover 4 product ratings 4.

I prefer this approach to the more mechanical cookbook approach in which equations and methods are emphasized over theory.

In fact I tell my students hltz ‘this is a text that you can retain for sheaha use and reference, whether you choose to go to graduate school or engineering practice. It anticipates well the questions forming in the average student’s mind.
