## Pile Design and Construction Practice, Fourth EditionThe fourth edition of this well-known book is fully revised and up-dated. It deals comprehensively with every aspect of design and construction of all types of piled foundation. A key feature of this book is the large number of worked examples, many of which are based on actual problems encountered in practice. |
