|1. “Modern Geotechnical Engineering” by A Singh
Book Review: The book contains a separate chapter called soil engineering experiments that provides the description of laboratory tests that are carried out at the undergraduate level. The book covers tests on moisture content determination, specific gravity determination, particle size determination, consistency limits, permeability determination, consolidation test compaction tests, field density and swelling pressure determination.
|2. “Principles of Foundation Engineering” by B M Das
Book Review: This book maintains a perfect balance between the current research and practical field applications thereby making it one of the most popular textbook in foundation engineering courses. The book contains numerous worked out examples and diagrams that is very useful for students with theory and problem solving skills. The book also introduces the fundamental concepts and foundation analysis design applications to the students of civil engineering. The author emphasizes on correct application of theories and analysis to soil evaluation, foundation design and field experience.
