Download Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice by Karl Terzaghi, Ralph B. Peck, Gholamreza Mesri [PDF]

Soil mechanics originated several decades ago under the pressure of necessity. As the practical problems involving soils broadened in scope, the inadequacy of the scientific tools available for coping with them became increasingly apparent.

Efforts to remedy the situation started almost simultaneously in the United States and in Europe, and within short period they produced an impressive array of useful information. 

The initial successes in this field of applied science were so encouraging that a new branch of structural analysis appeared to be in the making. As a consequence, the extent and profundity of the theoretical investigations increased rapidly, and experimental methods were developed to a high degree of refinement. Without the results of these painstaking investigations a rational approach to the problems of earthwork engineering could not have been attempted.

Soil Mechanics in Engineering Practice Third Edition by Karl Terzaghi, Ralph B. Peck 

Unfortunately, the research activities in soil mechanics had one undesirable physchological effect. They diverted the attention of many investigators and teachers from the manifold limitations imposed by nature on the application of mathematics to problems in earthwork engineering. As a consequence, more and more emphasis has been placed on refinements in sampling and testing and on those very few problems that can be solved with accuracy.
