The Art of Foundation Engineering Practice contains 40 invited papers on the engineering design, analysis, construction, and monitoring of foundations. The volume is assembled in honor of Clyde N. Baker, Jr., P.E., S.E., Dist.M.ASCE. For more than 50 years Clyde Baker has made distinguished contributions to the advancement of foundation engineering, beginning˙with the early Chicago high-rise buildings through to to the world's current record-setting skyscrapers. The invited papers were contributed by professors, researchers, practicing structural and geotechnical engineers, and contractors. In addition, six papers by Clyde Baker, including a paper based on his 2009 Terzaghi Lecture, are gathered in this book.

This book is a valuable source of information on the following topics:

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.

Geotechnical engineers, structural engineers, foundation specialists, academics, researchers, geotechnologists, construction engineers, superintendents, and inspectors will find something interesting and beneficial in this book.
