This text details the subject knowledge required of all structural engineers to enable them to carry out design of simple foundations, slopes and ground improvement that do not require specialist advice.

The Essential Knowledge Series is a core resource (primarily for structural engineering students but a useful refresher for more senior engineers) covering fundamental topics from structural materials to computer analysis. Student Members and members of the Institution's Academic Community can download the series for free at: www.istructe.org/essential-knowledge
