Book Summary of Engineering Mechanics and Elements of Ci...

Paper Back

This book is designed for undergraduate civil engineering students of Vishweshwaraiah Technological University (VTU) Karnataka.

The book is divided into two parts. The first part introduces the basic elements of civil engineering. It highlights the role and functions of a civil engineer and then explains the basic components of construction management. Various materials used in construction are then discussed. Apart from the conventionally used materials, various alternative, composite and smart materials are also explained. Surveying is discussed next including remote sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS).

The second part presents the basic principles of engineering mechanics. The concepts of coplaner forces, friction and inertia are suitably explained.

Illustrative examples and practice problems are included throughout the book to provide a thorough understanding of the subject.

About The Author:

Dr. S.S. Bhavikatti studied at BVB College of Engineering and Technology, Hubli for his BE (Civil) degree and graduated from Karnataka University, Dharwad in 1963, sharing first rank with another candidate. The same year he joined Karnataka Regional Engineering College, Surathkal (presently NITK, Surathkal), as a teacher. He secured ME degree in Structural Engineering in 1967 from University of Roorkee, Roorkee (presently IIT Roorkee) under Technical Teachers Training Programme and Ph.D. degree in 1977 from IIT Delhi under Quality Improvement Programme. He served at NITK, Surathkal in different capacities like Head of Civil Engg. Department; Chairman, Centre for Continuing Education; Chairman, Central Computer Centre and Dean (Administration). From November 2001 to November 2005, he served at SDM College of Engineering & Technology, Dharwad. He also served at RYMEC, Bellary as Principal for 1 year 9 months.
