About the BookContent

This book aims at presenting the topics of Railway, Bridge and Tunnel Engineering written in a
simple manner. The subject-matter is characterized by comprehension as well as methodical
and easy-to-follow style.
The Section I: Railway Engineering is well divided in to Seventeen chapters including Introduction
to Railway Engineering; Rail Gauges; Surveys and Alignment of Railway Lines; Railway
Traction; Rails; Creep; Rail Fastenings; Geometric Design of a Track; Resistance to Traction;
Points and Crossings; Signalling; Interlocking; Station Machinery; etc.
The Section II: Bridge Engineering is well divided in to Twelve chapters including Introduction
to Bridge Engineering; Foundations - I: Pile Foundation; Foundations - II: Caissons and
Cofferdams; Substructures; Fixed-Span Superstructures; Low Cost Bridges: Movable-Span
Superstructures; Low Cost Bridges: Culverts and Causeways; Low Cost Bridges: Timber or
Temporary Bridges; Flooring; Bearings; Erection, Maintenance and Strengthening of Bridges;
Miscellaneous Topics; etc.
The Section III: Tunnel Engineering is well divided in to Ten chapters including General Aspects
of Tunnelling; Stages in Tunnel Construction; Tunnelling in Soft Ground; Tunnelling in Hard
Rock; Shield Tunnelling; Shafts and Portals; Tunnel Lining; Lighting, Ventilation and Dust Control
in Tunnels; Drainage of Tunnels; Safety in Tunnel Construction; etc.
The 2 Appendices give Abbreviated Terms and also Model Question Papers.
Salient features of this book are:488 self-explanatory and neatly drawn sketches; 35 illustrative
problems; 41 important useful tables; 626 typical questions at the end of the chapters.
The text-matter has been arranged systematically according to the curriculum developed by the
Gujarat Technological University (G.T.U.) for the Sixth Semester students of Civil Engineering
(Subject code: 160603) and also it should prove to be extremely useful to the Civil Engineering
students preparing for the Degree Examinations 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 prove great of interest and practical use to the practicing professionals.
