Soil Mechanics and Foundations (English) 16th Edition (Paperback): Soil Mechanics And Foundations is a comprehensive reference and learning resource for civil engineering students. It explains in detail soil characteristics and includes experiments for enhancing the learner’s practical know-how. Summary Of The Book Soil mechanics is an important branch of engineering mechanics applied in civil engineering to predict the behavior of soil. All structures have the same foundation, i.e. earth. Thus, a study of the behavior of its chief component becomes prudent for every civil engineer. Soil Mechanics And Foundations is a must-have for every civil engineering student. It deals with topics beyond soil characteristics, including retaining wall, foundations, and piers. It also discusses stresses due to surface loads, the effect of water on stress conditions, seepage, shear strength, and soil permeability. Theories are explained with in-depth examples and a list of experiments to assist in the learning process. The book includes topics like soil structure and clay mineralogy, earth pressure, shallow foundations, and design of flexible pavement. The book is divided into 34 chapters and eight parts for easier navigation between topics. An updated, accurate, and comprehensive book on soil mechanics is necessary as the safety of structures depends greatly on their foundations. The book helps in presenting the reader with design principles and theories on foundation engineering and soil mechanics. The book can be useful for students pursuing postgraduate and undergraduate courses in soil engineering. Soil Mechanics And Foundations also includes 21 lab experiments. About The Authors B. C. Punmia is an author and former professor. Some of the books written by him include Surveying Vol. II, Building Construction, Water Supply Engineering, and Basic Civil Engineering. Punmia graduated with honours in his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. He later worked as an Assistant Professor, Reader, Professor and Dean. He has written over hundred monographs and technical reports and is a highly regarded author who has written eighteen books. He was also the Dean and Head of the Civil Engineering department at M. B. M. Engineering College. Ashok Kumar Jain is a design and field engineer.
