It provides a modern coverage of the engineering properties of soils and makes extensive reference to the Indian Standard Codes of Practice while discussing practices in Foundation Engineering. Some topics of special interest, like the Schmertmann procedure for extrapolation of field compressibility, determination of secondary compression, Lambe's stress—path concept, pressuremeter testing and foundation practices on expansive soils including certain widespread myths, find a place in the text.

The book includes over fully solved examples, which are designed to illustrate the application of the principles of soil mechanics in practical situations. Extensive use of SI units, side by side with other mixed units, makes it easy for the students as well as professionals who are less conversant with the SI units, gain familiarity with this system of international usage. Inclusion of about short-answer questions and over objective questions in the Question Bank makes the book useful for engineering students as well as for those preparing for GATE, UPSC and other qualifying examinations.

In addition to serving the needs of the civil engineering students, the book will serve as a handy reference for the practising engineers as well. About the Author Gopal Ranjan obtained his Ph.

This book thoroughly explains all the concepts. A student who begins studying soil mechanics from this book will never be disappointed. This book is highly recommended for GATE and other competitive examinations.

Te only book which clears the basics of the subject with full justice. All the concepts have been explained with great clearity. Don't ever buy this book if you truly want to have an understanding of soil mechanics. If you want to just pass the exams then it may be fine its full of errors though.

Personally, I have rarely seen books as worse as this! Piyush Rai Mar, Lingaswamy Chithaluri Certified Buyer , Hyderabad 5 months ago.
