This text will guide the soil and foundation engineer as well as the general building contractor, using the background on the basics of soil mechanics, on how to properly design and construct a light concrete slab-on-grade foundation for a particular site and soil condition. Background theory and knowledge on basic soil mechanics will also be provided. In addition, the book will explain what to do when things go wrong - for example, as often happens with expansive clay soils, including the latest chemical and mechanical technologies available for soil and foundation stabilization.
