Foundation Design Theory and Practice by N. S. V. Kameswara Rao
In Foundation Design: Theory and Practice, Professor N. S. V. Kameswara Rao covers the key aspects of the subject, including principles of testing, interpretation, analysis, soil-structure interaction modeling, construction guidelines, and applications to rational design. Rao presents a wide array of numerical methods used in analyses so that readers can employ and adapt them on their own. Throughout the book the emphasis is on practical application, training readers in actual design procedures using the latest codes and standards in use throughout the world.
Presents updated design procedures in light of revised codes and standards, covering:
American Concrete Institute (ACI) codes
Other British Standard-based codes including Indian codes
Provides background materials for easy understanding of the topics, such as:
Code provisions for reinforced concrete
Pile design and construction
Machine foundations and construction practices
Tests for obtaining the design parameters
Features subjects not covered in other foundation design texts:
Soil-structure interaction approaches using analytical, numerical, and finite element methods
Analysis and design of circular and annular foundations
Analysis and design of piles and groups subjected to general loads and movements
Contains worked out examples to illustrate the analysis and design
Provides several problems for practice at the end of each chapter
Lecture materials for instructors available on the book’s companion website
Foundation Design is designed for graduate students in civil engineering and geotechnical engineering. The book is also ideal for advanced undergraduate students, contractors, builders, developers, heavy machine manufacturers, and power plant engineers. Students in mechanical engineering will find the chapter on machine foundations helpful for structural engineering applications.
It’s properly realized that ‘Geotechnical Engineering is an engineering science however its apply is an artwork!’ Foundations are important interfaces between the superstructure and the supporting soil on the website of development. Thus they need to be designed logically to swimsuit the masses coming from the superstructure and the energy, stiffness and different geological situations of the supporting soil. With an unlimited improve in development actions all around the world, buildings and their foundations have grow to be very subtle whereas the supporting soil has to accommodate these variations and complexities.
This e book focuses on the evaluation and design of foundations utilizing rational in addition to standard approaches. It additionally presents structural design strategies utilizing codes of apply and limiting state design of bolstered concrete (RCC) buildings. This e book was developed from the programs on Foundation Engineering taught by the creator previously within the Indian Institute of Expertise Kanpur, India and presently within the Faculty of Engineering and IT, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia. Accordingly, the contents of the e book are introduced in a user-friendly method that’s simple to observe and apply.
