Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering by Dr. KR Arora

Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering by Dr. KR Arora is a book where the author elaborates and describes the fundamentals of soil mechanics and soil engineering.

Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering (Geotechnical Engineering) fast-developing discipline of civil engineering.

Considerable work has been done in the field in the last 6 decades. A student finds it difficult to have access to the latest literature in the filled. In this book, there is very effective content collected from various sources.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part deal with the fundamentals of soil mechanics and the second part deals with earth retaining structures and foundation engineering.
