Barends (groundwater mechanics, Technical U. Delft, the Netherlands) examines the behavior of soft soils, particularly sand, silt, clay, and peat, and reviews basic aspects of soil mechanics such as laboratory and field-testing, stresses and strains, deformation and strength, and groundwater effects, including environmental aspects and historical geotechnical contributions. He describes applications of soil mechanics in construction, fundamental aspects of physical and numerical models and their application, codes of practice and guidelines, principles of risk management for handling uncertainty and reliability, and a structural involvement of experience, as well as the societal context of the geotechnical engineer. He also addresses soil-related problems such as slope stability, earth retaining structures, foundations, ground improvement, environmental impact, underground construction, coastal engineering, and dike technology.
