HARBOUR DOCK AND TUNNEL ENGINEERINGR. SrinivasanEdition : 28th Edition : 2016 ISBN : 9789385039195 Size : 135 mm x 210 mm Binding : Paperback Pages : 408 + 16 = 424` 175.00ABOUT THE BOOKThis text-book concisely formulates the basic principles of the subject matter in simple language presented in two sections. The Section I — Harbour and Dock Engineering, is well-divided in twelve chapters including chapter on ‘Planning and Layout of Ports’. Also the approach of the write-up has been changed according to the form of facilities and requirements of Harbours and Ports. The Section II — Tunnel Engineering, is also well-divided in twelve chapters including newly developed methods like New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM), Shield methods and chapters on ‘Stages in Tunnel Construction’, ‘Tunnelling in Water Bearing Soils’ and also ‘Health Protection in Tunnels’ have been incorporated. Salient features of this book: * 230 Self-explanatory and neatly drawn sketches, photographs and more than, * 310 Examination questions at the end of each chapter. The book in the present form will prove to be extremely useful to the students preparing for the Degree examinations in Civil Engineering of all the Indian Universities, Diploma examinations conducted by various Boards of Technical Education, Certificate Courses as well as for the A.M.I.E., U.P.S.C., G.A.T.E., I.E.S., and other similar competitive and professional examinations. It should also be an immense use to practising Civil Engineers.CONTENTSection I : HARBOUR AND DOCK ENGINEERING 1 : HARBOURS AND PORTS 2 : NATURAL PHENOMENA : TIDES, WIND AND WAVES 3 : PROTECTION FACILITIES : MOUND BREAKWATER 4 : PROTECTION FACILITIES : WALL TYPE AND SPECIAL BREAKWATERS 5 : PLANNING AND LAYOUT OF PORTS 6 : DOCKING FACILITIES 7 : REPAIRING FACILITIES 8 : APPROACH FACILITIES 9 : LOADING UNLOADING FACILITIES 10 : STORING FACILITIES 11 : DREDGING FACILITIES 12 : GUIDING FACILITIES Section II : TUNNEL ENGINEERING 13 : GENERAL ASPECTS 14 : STAGES IN TUNNEL CONSTRUCTION 15 : SOIL CLASSIFICATION AND TUNNELLING METHODS 16 : OTHER METHODS OF TUNNELLING IN SOFT SOILS 17 : TUNNELLING IN WATER BEARING SOILS 18 : TUNNELLING IN ROCK 19 : THE NEW AUSTRIAN TUNNELLING METHOD (NATM) 20 : SHAFTS 21 : TUNNEL LINING 22 : DRAINAGE OF TUNNELS 23 : TUNNEL VENTILATION, DUST PREVENTION AND LIGHTING 24 : HEALTH PROTECTION IN TUNNELS IndexHARBOUR, DOCK AND TUNNEL ENGINEERING Detailed ContentsSECTION I : HARBOUR AND DOCK ENGINEERING Chapter 1 HARBOURS AND PORTS 1-1.
