|About the book|
Imperfect designing of machine foundations based on empirical formulations has led to the problem of troublesome vibrations in the existing foundations. Recent developments in the field of structural and soil dynamics have helped establish basic design principles for various types of machine foundations. In order to achieve efficiency and economy in the design, it is imperative that the designer have an in depth knowledge of various aspects of analysis, design and construction of machine foundations.
This volume strives to achieve the twin objective of serving as a reference manual for the practising engineers and research workers and as useful text for students of civil engineering.
Besides the basic design principles, the handbook features:
