A good text book for the subject is therefore necessary to facilitate proper understanding of the subject by the students.There are various books available on the subject of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, but the author feels that each of these available books is lacking in one respect or the other. As such none of the available books on the subject is complete in all respects. The author has therefore made an earnest attempt to bring out a book on the subject which may be reckoned as a complete text book in all respects.In the Seventh Edition of the book, the Author has revised the complete text of the book in S.I.
