About the Book

This volume is one of the two which offer a comprehensive course in those parts of theory and practice of Plane and Geodetic surveying that are most commonly used by Civil Engineers. The first volume covers in 24 chapters, the most common surveying operations. Each topic introduced is thoroughly described, the theory is rigorously developed, and a large number of numerical examples are included to illustrate its application. General statements of important principles and methods are almost invariably given by practical illustrations. Apart from illustrations of old and conventional instruments, emphasis has been placed on new or modern instruments, both for ordinary as well as precise work. A Good deal of space has been given to instrumental adjustments with thorough discussion of geometrical principles in each case. Many new advanced problems have also been added which will prove useful for competitive examinations.

About the Author

Faculty of Engineering eminent author of 18 books, the most of which are followed as textbooks. Having graduated in 1959 with 'HONOURS', he obtained his Master's degree in 1969 with 'HONOURS' and Ph.D. in 1976. Having started his career as Assistant Professor in 1959, he was elevated to the posts of Reader in 1965 and Professor in 1978. He also held the posts of Head of Civil Engg and Dean of the Faculty of Engineering at M.B.M. Engineering College, Jodhpur. During his teaching career of about 36 years, he guided a large number of research students. Dr. Punmia has authored more than hundred papers, monographs and technical reports published in various Indian and Foreign Journals. He had been consultant to various government, semi-government and private organisations.

Ashok Kumar Jain is an eminent Design and Field Engineer. He is also a prolific writer in the domain of Civil Engineering.
