THE OBJECT of this little book is to serve as an introduction to Soil Mechanics applied to building. While of interest to anyone connected with building construction, it will be of particular benefit to engineers, architects, surveyors and designers generally, who, without previous study of the subject, are called upon to assume responsibility for foundations, excavations and earth-retaining structures in connection with building, and to students desiring to read Soil Mechanics. Illustrated with B&W photographs.
