Engineering Geology

Engineering Geology is a multidisciplinary topic which interacts with different disciplines, similar to mineralogy, petrology, structural geology, hydrogeology, seismic engineering, rock engineering, soil mechanics, geophysics, distant sensing (RS-GIS-GPS), environmental geology, and so on. Engineers require a deeper knowing, interpretation and analyses of earth sciences earlier than suggesting engineering designs and remedial measures to wrestle common mess ups, reminiscent of earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, particles flows, tsunamis, and floods.

Water Power Engineering, 2nd Edition

The publication presents a accomplished account of a massive quarter of engineering—the hydro-power—that is renewable and probably sustainable. It covers the total scope of the topic in a lucid demeanour ranging from the basics of hydrology, to numerous hydraulic and civil buildings to electric and mechanical apparatus as required for hydro-power tasks.
