Theory And Practice Of Foundation Design by N. N. Som, S. C. Das
Book Summary:

This comprehensive text on foundation design is intended to introduce students of civil engineering, architecture, and environmental disciplines to the fundamentals of designing sound foundations and their implementation. It offers an in-depth coverage of pre- and post-design methodologies that include soil identification, site investigation, interpretation of soil data and design parameters, foundations on different soil types through to settlements, seismic responses, and construction concerns. Though the book is woven around principles of foundation design, it also incorporates application aspects that bridge theory and practice. As an issue of contemporary importance it discusses geotechnical details of developing earthquake resistant designs for different soil types. In addition, the authors provide an extensive account of ground improvement techniques.
