About the book

This textbook first published in 1992, which has won the Nagadi Award for “the best publication in civil engineering” from the Association of Consulting Civil Engineers (India) - now appearing in its 3rd edition retains the best features from the earlier editions and adds significantly to the contents, which include developments in the nineties. The chapter on Soil-Structure Interaction has undergone a major revision incorporating additional text, which includes many recent developments, making it an up-to-date source of reference and study of this subject.

Key Features

  • •Design Plates redone as per revision of the IS Code (2000) on Reinforced Concrete Design •A CD containing a software (in 12,000 lines) for the geotechnical design of shallow foundations, deep foundations and retaining structures, which takes away the tedium of manual effort involving several cycles of iteration in each case - attached •Special feature of the software is that it outputs the design in both textual and graphic formats
