Design of Pile Foundations in Liquefiable Soils, by Gopal Madabhushi, Knappett and Stuart Haigh provides beneficial information to unravel a complex and necessary practical problem in geotechnical engineering for which not many books are available. For graduate college students, researchers and training geotechnical engineers dealing with pile habits in liquefying soil, this book might be a useful resource.
Pile foundations are the most common form of deep foundations that used both onshore and offshore to transfer large superstructure masses into competent soil strata. This book provides many case histories of failure of pile foundations resulting from earthquake loading and soil liquefaction.
Based on the noticed case histories, the potential mechanisms of failure of the pile foundations are postulated. Design of Pile Foundations in Liquefiable Soils additionally deals with the additional loading attracted by piles in liquefiable soils because of lateral spreading of sloping ground. Current analysis at Cambridge kinds the spine of this book with the design methodologies being developed immediately primarily based on quantified centrifuge take a look at results and numerical analysis.
The book supplies designers and practicing civil engineers with a sound data of pile habits in liquefiable soils and simple-to-use methods to design pile foundations in seismic regions. For graduate college students and researchers, it brings collectively the latest analysis findings on pile foundations in a manner that is relevant to geotechnical practice.
