Foundation engineering naturally lends itself to spreadsheet use for evaluation, modification, and implementation of foundation designs. Spreadsheets are the computational tool of choice for practicing civil engineers. Students need a book which shows how to set up and use spreadsheets for foundation design analysis, and which bridges the gap between analysis techniques taught in the classroom and their real-world application in the field. Wolff is the first book to present the use of spreadsheets in foundation engineering. Wolff makes extensive reference to Das: FOUNDATION ENGINEERING 3/e to demonstrate how the spreadsheet templates on the bound-in disk may be used or modified to solve a variety of analysis problems. Wolff provides a vehicle for including much-needed hands-on design experience and computer usage in the foundation engineering course.
