About the Author

Wei Dong Guo is Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia


"I think it is a very good book for researchers and graduate students for geotechnical engineering. The book includes the most recent theories for pile foundation, including static and cyclic loaded pile, and vertical and lateral loaded pile."
-Renpeng Chen, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China

"Quite detailed review is given ... Results are rather updated, and some more advanced numerical results are given. ... This book can be a good text for postgraduates, as it presents more advanced concept and results to the readers."
-Y.M. Cheng, Hong Kong Polytechnic University
