About The Book
The subject of ‘Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering’ is presently being taught as a core subject in the discipline of civil engineering at the degree as well as diploma level. In the present book, titled ‘Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering’, an attempt has been made to explain the fundamental concepts in a simple and lucid language. The text has also been explained in a logical and organized manner. It intends to serve the purpose of a text book as per the revised curriculum of polytechnics of Punjab, Haryana, H.P., Delhi and other states. Although this book is aimed at to fulfill the needs of diploma level students, but still it can be very helpful for practising soil engineers and AMIE students as well. The numerical problems are selected such that they can help the students in applying theoretical knowledge to problem solving in soil mechanics. No effort has been left in making the student understand the basic concepts. At the end of each chapter, objective type questions with answers, short answer type questions and descriptive type questions have been given. These will help the students to assess their knowledge. Laboratory experiments as per the syllabus requirements have been given at the last. Latest IS codes have been used as far as possible.
