Robert W. Day is a leading forensic engineer and the chief engineer at American Geotechnical in San . I appreciated that Mr. Day included many photographs and diagrams to go along with the many case studies discussed. The book doesn't go into great detail about exact calculations for failures, it is not a text book or how to type cookbook, but it is does discuss many types of failures and provides a lot of perspective on the causes of failures, indications and methods of remediation.

Great introduction to forensic geotechnical engineering. I appreciated that Mr. Day included many photographs and diagrams to go along with the many case studies discussed. The book doesn't go into great detail about exact calculations for failures, it is not a text book or how to type cookbook, but it is does discuss many types of failures and provides a lot of perspective on the causes of failures, indications and methods of remediation. I am a practicing Structural Engineer, not a geotechnical engineer, but I do work on foundation designs and repairs and found this book quite informative.

Bought it used but it was like new. Good for architects and civil/structural engineers like me that don't already have a lot of knowledge about foundation problems, and for geotechnical/soils engineers with an interest in forensics. Good for me but probably a little light for geotechnical engineers that already have a lot of experience.
A lot of good stuff in this book, five stars would have been for a larger book with more of the same in greater depth.

Very detailed discussions on soils and foundation related items. A great addition to any collection and a valuable reference book.
Jieylau
Good general knowledge with some good schematics and case studies.
Wohald
Dissapointing. Basic information for simple cases. I really thought this book was in a higher level.
