Biography: science, technology & engineering

Every engineer needs a kaleidoscopic view of how geological factors affect engineer structures and design. Be it natural disasters, erosion, seismology, geotechnical materials properties or rock engineering, the recognition, identification and implementation of adoptive measures to protect life and property is all that engineering geology encompasses. In this direction, the author brings forth an insightful work, Engineering Geology, a textbook dealing with the Earth layers, crystology and mineralogy, petrology, earthquakes and seismic hazards, tunnels and underground excavations, and remote sensing and related topics.

The book is a lucid explanation of complex principles and concepts with extensive collection of examples and case studies. The author has kept the IV semester BE/BTech students at focus, packaging the text with neat illustrations and well-structured self-assessment exercises for a better, guided learning experience.

Engineering Geology is a great reference guide not only for course study but also for competitive exams.
