SOIL MECHANICS BOOKS
Soil Mechanics includes the study of the behavior of soil, rock and underground water that are encountered in civil engineering practice. It includes the study of classification and properties of different types of soils and rocks. It is a discipline of Civil Engineering involving the study of soil, its behavior, and application as an engineering material. It applies of laws of mechanics and hydraulics to engineering problems dealing with sediments and other unconsolidated accumulations of solid particles, which are produced by the mechanical and chemical disintegration of rocks, regardless of whether or not they contain an admixture of organic constituents.
FLUID MECHANICS AND HYDRAULICS BOOKS
SOLID MECHANICS BOOKS
It is the branch of mechanics that deals with deformable bodies and forces acting on it. It forms the basis of the study of structural analysis and design.
GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING BOOKS
Geotechnical engineering is concerned with the design of foundations, retaining structures, and behavior of earth materials such as soil or rock. It uses the principle of soil mechanics, to investigate subsurface conditions and materials and relevant physical and chemical properties of the materials.
STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS BOOKS
It deals with analyzing the forces of structures when applied with physical and environmental loads. Structures are analyzed to determine their response to the various loads acting on it by using many classical, numerical and theoretical approaches.
