Thus, the foundation is an important part of a structure, the type and details of which can be decided upon only with the knowledge and application of the principles of soil mechanics.
Pavement Design may consist of the design of flexible or rigid pavements. Flexible pavements depend more on the subgrade soil for transmitting the traffic loads. Problems peculiar to the design of pavements are the effect of repetitive loading, swelling and shrinkage of sub-soil and frost action. Consideration of these and other factors in the efficient design of a pavement is a must and one cannot do without the knowledge of soil mechanics.
Likewise the construction of embankments and earth dams where soil itself is used as the construction material requires a thorough knowledge of the engineering behaviour of soil especially in the presence of water. Knowledge of slope stability, effects of seepage, consolidation and consequent settlement as well as compaction characteristics for achieving maximum unit weight of the soil in-situ, is absolutely essential for efficient design and construction of embankments and earth dams.
The knowledge of soil mechanics, assuming the soil to be an ideal material elastic, isotropic, and homogeneous material—coupled with the experimental determination of soil properties, is helpful in predicting the behaviour of soil in the field. Soil being a particulate and heterogeneous material, does not lend itself to simple analysis. Further, the difficulty is enhanced by the fact that soil strata vary in extent as well as in depth even in a small area.
A thorough knowledge of soil mechanics is a prerequisite to be a successful foundation engineer. It is difficult to draw a distinguishing line between Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering; the later starts where the former ends.

Soil Mechanics: Basic Concepts and Engineering Applications by A. Aysen, Taylor & Francis
Haynes ManualsThe Haynes Author : A. Aysen Description:Although primarily designed as a supplement to Soil Mechanics: Basic Concepts and Engineering Applications, this book can be used as anindependent problem solving text, since there is no specific reference to any equation or figure in the main book and contains problems and fully-worked solutions. Written for university students taking first-degree courses in civil engineering, environmental and agricultural engineering, its main aim is to simulate problem solving learning as well as facilitating self-teaching. The special structure of the book makes it possible to be used in two, three and four year undergraduate courses in soil mechanics. As it includes new and advanced topics tis work book will also be a valuable resource for the practising professional engineer. Although readers are assumed to have prior knowledge in soil mechanics; necessary basic information is included in each worked example.
Soil Mechanics: Basic Concepts and Engineering Applications is primarily designed as a main text for university students taking first degree courses in civil.
