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

Description

In Foundation Design: Theory and Practice, Professor N. S. V. Kameswara covers the key aspects of the subject, including principles of testing, interpretation, analysis, soil-structure interaction modeling, guidelines, and applications to rational design. Rao presents a wide array of numerical methods 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 procedures using the latest codes and standards in use throughout the world.

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