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


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

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