A guide book for engineering geologists and geotechnical engineers, Pile Design and Construction Practice not only provides a knowledge base, but also gives accurate schematics and calculations, including the resistance of piles to compressive loads and the effects of compressive loading, a myriad of structural designs for all contingencies, focusing on marine constructions and lateral loading. It tackles problems on durability, machinery foundations, underpinning, frozen ground and mining subsidence areas and is a detailed guide to pile testing and ground investigations.

The book summarizes recent changes, including new codified design procedures addressing design parameters and partial safety factors. It also presents several examples, many based on actual problems.
