Part of the ICE manuals series, ICE manual of geotechnical engineering is the definitive geotechnical reference, providing best practice knowledge for civil and structural engineers. Written and edited by leaders in their fields, ICE manual of geotechnical engineering delivers the core geotechnical engineering principles, practical techniques, and the major questions engineers should keep in mind when dealing with real-world engineering challenges.
Volume II covers design of foundations, retaining structures and earthworks, slopes and pavements, construction processes and verification.
This volume uses and builds on the principles and concepts, problematic soils and site investigation detail covered in Volume I.

ICE manual of geotechnical engineering is an essential guide and invaluable reference for practising civil and structural engineers, architects, designers, consultants and contractors, working on projects of all sizes.
