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

Description

In Foundation Design: , Professor N. S. V. Kameswara Rao covers the key aspects of the subject, principles of testing, interpretation, , 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 book 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 book is also ideal for advanced undergraduate students, contractors, builders, developers, heavy manufacturers, and plant . Students in mechanical engineering will find the chapter on foundations helpful for engineering applications.
