Transportation Engineering, Volume IIdeals at length, in five distinct parts, with the engineering aspects of Railways, Airports, Docks and Harbours and Bridges and Tunnels that form part of the undergraduate curriculum in Transportation Engineering and caters to the needs of civil engineering courses offered by technical universities across India. While the first three parts, along with Volume I, elaborate on the primary modes of transportation, the fourth and fifth parts are essential links to these modes. The book cites and specifies the latest IRS, IRC and IS codes, including the special publications, in its discussion of current engineering practices and testing specifications used in India while guiding the student through all the prescribed topics with clarity and academic rigour. With several fully solved problems and chapter-end exercises for practice, the book focuses on enabling the student to perform well in examinations, while also going into the details to drive home core concepts.
