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

In Foundation Design: , Professor N. S. V. Kameswara covers the key aspects of the subject, including principles of testing, interpretation, analysis, soil- interaction modeling, construction 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 in civil engineering and geotechnical engineering. The book is also ideal for undergraduate students, contractors, builders, developers, heavy machine manufacturers, and power plant engineers. Students in mechanical engineering will find the chapter on machine foundations helpful for engineering applications.
