In addition to covering foundation fundamentals, it also explores the latest developments in the design of drilled piers and mechanically stabilized earth retaining walls, as well as a pioneering approach for predicting the nonlinear behavior of laterally loaded long vertical and batter piles. It also discusses considerations specific to both shallow and deep foundations, examines caisson foundations in great detail, and covers sheet pile structures, cantilever walls, and anchored bulkheads.
Included is a computer program for solving stability of slopes. While this volume focuses on structures, the first volume, "Principles and Practices of Soil Mechanics," focuses on soil mechanics, fully discussing load and stress factors, seepage and permeability, as well as shear strength and compressibility. It covers all the laws and formulas and required tests required in geotechnical enginnering. While both volumes stand on their own, together they provide the most complete resource available on geotechnical engineering show more.

Murthy is published by Book World Enterprises. This book is well written with numerous examples on applications of basic principles to solve practical problems. This textbook by Prof. Murthy is highly recommended for students specializing in geotechnical engineering and for practicing civil engineers in the United States and Europe. The book includes recent developments such as soil improvement and stabilization methods and applications of geotextiles to control settlements and lateral earth pressure. Numerous graphs and examples illustrate the most important concepts in geotechnical engineering. This textbook should serve as a valuable reference book for many years to come.
Geotechnical Engineering by V. Murthy
To serve as a foundation course for graduate students pursuing advanced knowledge in the subject. The first chapter trace s the historical background of the subject and the second deals with the formation and mineralogical composition of soils. Chapter 3 covers the index properties and classification of soil. Chapters 4 and 5 explain soil permeability , seepage, and the effect of water on stress conditions in soil.
