Page Error and Correction Comments
44 For soils GW and SW, "Cz" should read "Cc" Notation carried over from source (NAVFAC DM 7.01); should be corrected to correspond with book.
44 For soil GC, "Atterberg limits above the "A" line, and PI greater than 4." should read "Atterberg limits above the "A" line, and PI greater than 7."  
129 "ft-lb/ft3" should read "ft-kip/ft3" Table 8.1
221 Fc = 1.8, so qp = 9 x 1000 x 1.8 = 16,200 psf and Qd = 151,560 lbs.

353 Qu = 58 kips Answer to Problem 11.5. Hammers are the smallest commonly available for their type, so using a smaller one is unlikely from a practical standpoint.

36 (Instructor's Manual) Value of delta should be corrected.
38-39 (Instructor's Manual) Problem "7" solution is in reality solution for Problem 8. Given Problem 8 solution should be ignored.
