      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Good Book For Designing Foundations

    Good illustrations for Foundation Design and properties of Soil.
    The book can be helpful to students who wish to specialize in Geo-technical engg at PG level. It clears all basics and has more numerical, both solved & unsolved, than any other book on Geo tech engg.

    Strongly recommended for students of Mumbai University

    The book covers nearly the entire curriculum of geotechnical engineering taught at undergraduate level in Indian universities. The only drawback of the book remains that there are a very few solved examples of numerical though the book is best as far the theory and clarity of concept is concerned.

    Average book to learn concept

    The book is a good one to make notes but as far as concept is concerned better look for soil mechanics by Gopalranjan.The delivery by flipkart was just awesome.Theory of this book is nice but for numericals try the book from above author mentioned.
