This book presents an illustrative treatment of the testing techniques of soils in
the laboratory and field for determination of engineering properties. Twentyfour
select lab-based experiments have been included on various aspects of
Soil Mechanics.

The testing procedure, methodology and suitable data presentation tables are
based on the relevant Indian Standard specifications. The data analysis shall
make the students aware of techniques generally used for the determination
of soil properties in the laboratory as well as in the field. With its coverage, the
book is an indispensable lab manual for the Civil Engineering students and
other allied areas, like Geotechnical Engineering, Agricultural Engineering,
etc. It will also be a useful reference for scientists and researchers in the area
of Soil Mechanics studies.

Dr. Ravi Kumar Sharma, Professor of Civil Engineering, National Institute
of Technology, Hamirpur (HP), obtained his PhD in 1999 from Indian Institute
of Technology, Roorkee. He is an experienced teacher, researcher and
consultant with more than 30 years of experience. He has published
