Abstract : This report presents four geotechnical engineering programs for use on personal computing systems. An Apple II-Plus operating with DOS 3.3 Applesoft language was used. The programs include the solution of the signpost problem, the cantilevered sheet pile problem, the slope stability problem, and the flexible pavement design program. Each chapter is independent and does not rely upon theories or data presented in other chapters. A chapter outlines the theory used and also presents a users guide, a program list, and verification of the program by hand calculation. This report assimilates the product a practicing engineer would expect to receive when procuring software services.
