 ABOUT THE TITLE
Designed as an introductory text for the undergraduate first-year students of all branches of engineering, the present book covers the basics of civil engineering which is required by the students in the beginning of their four-year engineering studies.

This textbook covers four parts of civil engineering: Building materials, Building construction and architecture, Surveying, and Highway engineering. All the chapters are arranged in a logical sequence in order to maintain the continuity of the different parts as per the syllabus. Illustrated numerical examples are solved in the chapter wherever necessary. All the worked out examples have relevance to the theory and equations covered in the Chapters end exercises at the end of each chapter help students to absorb concepts, and thus reinforce the understanding of the subject.

In a nutshell, this volume contains the complete contents of the course comprising four sub-branches of civil engineering in a single condensed form.
