    Karl von Terzaghi ( – ) was a Czech geologist and Civil engineer, hailed as the "father of soil mechanics". This book has been elected for republication due to its educational value and is proudly republished here with an introductory biography of the author/5(11). Karl Terzaghi () was the first to elaborate a comprehensive mechanics of soils with his publication of Erdbaumechanik in His recognition and formulation of the effective stress principle and its influence on settlement analysis, strength, permeability and erosion of soils was his most prodigious contribution.

If civil engineering were a game, Karl Terzaghi had a right to lay down the rules--he had invented and established much of the groundwork. Terzhaghi () is one of the leading civil engineers of the 20th century and is widely known as the father of soil mechanics/5(10).

    Karl von Terzaghi was an Austrian civil engineer, geotechnical engineer and geologist known as the "father of soil mechanics".. Dr. Ralph Brazelton Peck was an eminent civil engineer specializing in soil mechanics. He was awarded the National Medal of Science in "for his development of the science and art of subsurface/5(26). These can be found in the excellent biography of Karl Terzaghi, authored by Professor D. Goodman, titled "Karl Terzagi, the engineer as artist", published by the ASCE. I consider the book essential reading for every geotechnical engineer, especially for young Geotechnical Engineers.
