The book serves the interests and needs of designers, teachers and students of civil engineering. It provides the designers with specific design procedures and the relevant background material to understand the theory and methodology behind the procedures, their limitations and their relevance to the problem on hand. For teachers, this is a good resource book to teach more than one course in geotechnical engineering, both at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The students will find the book a good reference for several courses in geotechnical engineering and in their future professional career. The remaining part of the book, on soil engineering, covers all important problems typically met with in civil engineering practice. Applications of procedures are illustrated with numerous solved examples. Instances where the designer must use his own judgement are also brought out.Table 12.2 gives the recommendation for expected mode of failure in cohesionless soils according to Indian Standard Code IS: 6403-1981.
