  • Description

    Soil Mechanics And Foundations is a comprehensive reference and learning resource for civil engineering students. It explains in detail soil characteristics and includes experiments for enhancing the learner’s practical know-how.

    Summary Of The Book

    Soil mechanics is an important branch of engineering mechanics applied in civil engineering to predict the behavior of soil. All structures have the same foundation, i.e. earth. Thus, a study of the behavior of its chief component becomes prudent for every civil engineer.

    Soil Mechanics And Foundations is a must-have for every civil engineering student. It deals with topics beyond soil characteristics, including retaining wall, foundations, and piers. It also discusses stresses due to surface loads, the effect of water on stress conditions, seepage, shear strength, and soil permeability. Theories are explained with in-depth examples and a list of experiments to assist in the learning process.

    The book includes topics like soil structure and clay mineralogy, earth pressure, shallow foundations, and design of flexible pavement. The book is divided into 34 chapters and eight parts for easier navigation between topics.

    An updated, accurate, and comprehensive book on soil mechanics is necessary as the safety of structures depends greatly on their foundations. The book helps in presenting the reader with design principles and theories on foundation engineering and soil mechanics. The book can be useful for students pursuing postgraduate and undergraduate courses in soil engineering. Soil Mechanics And Foundations also includes 21 lab experiments.

    Best book on numerical for Geotechnical engineering

    The book can be helpful to students who wish to specialize in Geotechnical engg at PG level. It clears all basics and has more numericals, both solved & unsolved, than any other book on Geotech engg. The book does contain lots of extra stuff, so it becomes necessary to keep the syllabus copy handy while studying from this book.

    My Experience with this book

    I am a student of diploma in civil engineering..passed with 83% marks. But truly speaking buying this book was a great mistake of mine. Whenever i opened this book and wanted to understand the subject it made me confused every time.Reasons are:
    1.It makes a complicated subject more complicated.
    2. This books contains somany unnecessary topics which are not required for students to understand the subject.
    I would suggest average students never buy this book.

    Decent product

    As we know that B.C.Punmia is one of best writer of Geotechnical engineering so I decided to purchase this book. In this book, Content was very nice, it cover all the topics of soil mechanics and foundation engineering for any exams like semester, ssc JE, ESE, Gate.. This book contains lot of numericals and lot of questions for practice. But I returned this book to flipkart because quality of the book(quality of pages & Binding) was not good. The pages were coming out and get separate from ...
