Overview for Soil Mechanics and Foundations

In the Sixteenth Edition, the subject matter has been thoroughly revised and updated, and rearranged. In each chapter, many new articles have been added. All the diagrams have been redrawn using computer graphics and the book has been computer type-set in a bigger format, keeping in pace with the modern trend. At the end of each chapter, problems appearing at various central competitive examinations (such as Civil Services, Engineering Services and Gate) have been solved. In addition to these, a new chapter on ‘Geotextiles’ have been added at the end of the book.
