This book examines alternative design procedures for plain and piled raft foundations. It explores the assumptions that are made in the analysis of soil - structure interaction, together with the associated calculation methods. The book gives many examples of project applications covering a wide range of structural forms and ground conditions.

So far working stress method was used for the design of steel structures. Nowadays whole world is going for the limit state method which is more rational. Indian national code IS:800 for the design of steel structures was revised in the year 2007 incorporating limit state method. This book is aimed at training the students in using IS: 800 2007 for designing steel structures by limit state method. The author has explained the provisions of code in simple language and illustrated the design procedure with a large number of problems. It is hoped that all universities will soon adopt design of steel structures as per IS: 2007 and this book will serve as a good textbook.A sincere effort has been made to present design procedure using simple language, neat sketches and solved problems.

The material in this book is intended primarily as an introduction to managing senior design projects for undergraduate engineering students during their junior or senior year; however, the text may be used by other young engineers working on development of commercial products. The text is aimed at having students gain knowledge and perhaps understand the management processes required to develop and produce a prototype system or device. Other goals are to have the students or young engineers learn not only by performing the design and project management processes, but also to learn about the various types of required project documents and management reports.

The Design of Experiments

Statistical Principles for Practical Applications

In all the experimental sciences, good design of experiments is crucial to the success of research. Well-planned experiments can provide a great deal of information efficiently and can be used to test several hypotheses simultaneously. This book is about the statistical principles of good experimental design and is intended for all applied statisticians and practising scientists engaged in the design, implementation and analysis of experiments. Professor Mead has written the book with the emphasis on the logical principles of statistical design and employs a minimum of mathematics. Throughout he assumes that the large-scale analysis of data will be performed by computers and he is thus able to devote more attention to discussions of how all of the available information can be used to extract the clearest answers to many questions. The principles are illustrated with a wide range of examples drawn from medicine, agriculture, industry and other disciplines. Numerous exercises are given to help the reader practise techniques and to appreciate the difference that good design of experiments can make to a scientific project.
