A companion volume to the author’s Foundation Engineering (published by PHI Learning), this comprehensive and well-organized text deals with the structural design of the commonly used types of reinforced concrete foundations. It explains step-by-step procedure for the design of each type of foundation with the help of a large number of worked-out examples. The book provides an in-depth analysis of topics, such as wall footings, balanced footings, raft foundations, beam and slab rafts, pile caps and pile foundations.
The book is designed as a textbook for the undergraduate and postgraduate students (Structural/Geotechnical) of Civil Engineering. As the book deals with both the fundamentals of the subject and field practice, practising engineers will also find the book very useful.
