The basic concepts of highway and building engineering have been getting significantly
changed and updated. Developments in road and building technology and operations are
now available to designers, builders and operators, and building owners who want to
maximise both economic and environmental performances. The book is based on
empirical practices and experiences of individual engineers, with an approach to
emphasising on the theoretical aspects. In India, several organisations, namely Central
Road Research Institute (CRRI), Ministry of Road Transport and Highway (MORTH),
Indian Road Congress (IRC), Central Building Research Institute (CBRI), Bureau of Indian
Standards (BIS), Public Works Department (PWD), along with some educational
institutions are contributing knowledge and newer concepts to the field of highway and
building engineering.
The purpose of this book is to gather and present practical solutions to the problems which
are arrived at by Dr. Nandanandan Das, author due to his more than thirty-five years of vast
service experience, and these were formulated by contributors for students to inculcate
during their study of engineering to overcome such problems if faced during the execution.
The author’s objective is to prepare this book to introduce the subject of fine-tuning of
engineering challenges of road and building projects to students in a systematic manner.
Besides being useful to the Civil Engineering students in general, the book will also
be useful to PG students studying highway engineering as a subject, field engineers,
consultants, and researchers.

Dr. Nandanandan Das, D.Sc. (Civil Enginering), D.Litt. (Social
Work), Ph.D (Fine Tuning on Road), Ph.D (Fine Tuning on
Building) had been E.I.C.-cum-Secretary, Works (Retd.)
Government of Odisha. He has executed the massive road projects
like Expressway and Rourkela-Sambalpur, A.D.B. Project, and has
constructed different housing schemes for the ‘Odisha State Housing
Board’. He has formulated new concepts of ‘Road Safety Measures’,
‘Construction/Maintenance of Road Project’ and ‘Building Defects
with Remedies’ for the Government of Odisha, which were circulated
to the concerned departments as ideal guides. He presented several
papers in IRC sessions in Nagpur and Lucknow. He has received several State Awards
and National Award including the Rashtriya Gaurav Award. He has published more than
100 technical and social papers in books and journals. He presented new concepts
practically derived on RCC slab casting for long-lasting building and orientation of building
technically constructed, avoiding adverse effects of Vastu Shastra.
