Art of Foundation Engineering Practice (GSP 198) honours Clyde N.
Baker, Jr., P. E. S.E. Honorary Member of ASCE. For more than 50 years Clyde Baker has made distinguished contributions to the advancement of foundation engineering design, analysis, construction, and monitoring starting with the early Chicago high-rise buildings up to the world's current record-setting skyscrapers.
It contains 38 technical papers contributed by professors, researchers practicing structural and geotechnical engineers, and contractors.
This book is a valuable source of information for: historical reviews of land and offshore foundations work; fundamental and advanced foundation analytical procedures; foundation design using in situ geotechnical measurements; drilled shafts in soft and hard rock; foundations in difficult soils and geologic conditions: driven piles; foundations for static and dynamic loads; testing and long-term monitoring; and case histories.
It also includes a paper by Mr. Baker based on his 2009 Terzaghi Lecture. Geotechnical engineers, structural engineers, foundation specialists, academics, researchers, geotechnologists, construction engineers, superintendents, and inspectors will find something interesting and beneficial in this book.
