Transportation Engineering Vol. I eBook By Vazirani and Chandola
Book Summary:

This book has been compiled with a view to familiarise construction techniques for Highways, Railways, Tunnelling and Construction Equipment. Codes of practice as recommended by L.S.I. and I.R.C have been followed. The book will be useful for students of Engineering and A.M.I.E. This edition is being, Underground Railways of Calcutta, Mangalore-Hassan Rail Project, Quality-Control on Road Works, Traffic prediction on main highways, Design of Slabe Thickness (Rigid Pavements), Joints in Rigid Pavement, Standard Specification of Concrete Roads, Planning and Management of Highway. It is hoped that with the incorporation of above features, the usefulness of the book would be considerably improved.

Audience of the Book :
This book Useful for automobile engineering students.
