Soil Mechanics Now in Print

In the Soil Mechanics and Foundations courses on this site, we’ve relied on Verruijt’s text as the principal “theoretical” text. Last year we linked to download the Soil Mechanics Textbook by Tsytovich. Now we offer this text in print for sale.

Purchase Tsytovich’s Soil Mechanics

As with Verruijt, hopefully in the coming time we will feature interesting techniques in this book which may be of interest to our visitors.
