Foundation Design: Theory and Practice – N. S. V. Kameswara Rao – 1st Edition


In Foundation Design: Theory and Practice, Professor N. S. V. covers the key aspects of the subject, including principles of testing, interpretation, analysis, soil-structure interaction modeling, construction guidelines, and applications to rational design. Rao presents a wide array of used in analyses so that readers can employ and adapt them on their own. Throughout the the emphasis is on practical application, training readers in actual design using the latest codes and standards in use throughout the world.

Foundation Design is designed for graduate in civil and engineering. The is also ideal for advanced undergraduate students, contractors, builders, developers, heavy machine manufacturers, and power plant engineers. in mechanical will find the chapter on machine foundations helpful for structural engineering applications.

Excellent textbook. Just need to study more since the problems is where things get tough and requires a real good understanding just to solve.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
