The subject as a whole is a complicated one. But it is beloved that the basic ideas are exposed in this book, the reader will be able to have a clear idea of the subject.
This book is written in Metric units. The subject-matter explained in simple and easy language assisted by-explanatory and neatly drawn sketches where necessary.
This book covers the syllabi prescribed by various university of India-B.E. College Shibpur, jadavpur University, Burdman University, North Bengal University, Bombay University etc. This book will therefore be useful to students preparing for Degree, Diploma and Industrial Engineering examination or for examinations governed by various professional bodies.
After the first world war the importance of highways was felt and realized. The concept of highway engineering has changed during the last two decades. The thumb rule concept has become a thing of the past. With the increasing importance of highways for the prosperity and integrity of the country and with the increasing cost of construction and maintenance of highways, the trend of construction, planning and designing has also changed. The central road research Institute and P.W.D. Research centres all over the country have contributed a lot in the design, planning road user safety, construction and economy etc.
The present edition of the books is mostly overhauled and revised. One chapter on Temporary Structures is added in the portion of Building Construction. Now the book is quite up-to-date. This edition of the book is entirely new and different from its previous editions.
We hope, the book will prove more useful and will serve its purpose better.
