This book is intended primarily to introduce civil engineers, especially geotechnical engineers and all civil engineering students reading the specialist subjects of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering, to the fundamental concepts and application of shallow foundation analysis and design. Also, the furnished material can be considered as an essential reference work for practicing civil engineers, consulting engineers, and government authorities. The primary focus of this book is on interfacing structural elements with the underlying soil, which is, in the author’s opinion, where the major focus of shallow foundation engineering lies. The book is not intended to be a specific textbook on soil mechanics or geotechnical engineering. Therefore, there is no part of the text alone that could be used as a core syllabus for a certain course. However, it is the author’s opinion that more than 70% of the book is core material at the advanced undergraduate levels. It is expected that civil engineering students will find the text helpful in better understanding the fundamental concepts and their implications for the analysis and design of shallow foundations. The author tried to present the material such that separable topics and subtopics are covered in separate sections, with clear and unambiguous titles and subtitles. Thus, it would not be difficult for a university lecturer to draw up a personalized reading schedule, appropriate to his or her own course. It is hoped that the book can establish itself as an effective reference and a useful text in most of the engineering colleges and technical institutions.
