★ABOUT THE BOOK:
I feel proud in publishing the Seventeenth Edition of the book “Building Construction and Materials”. A new Chapter 44, Design of Earthquake Resistant Construction have been added taking in view the present global warming. The size of the present book has been enlarged considerably easily. The book has been updated according to the latest trends on valuable suggestions and specifications from learned professors of various engineering colleges. Basic engineering material like stone, bricks, lime, cement, timber and iron has been added in this edition. Constructive criticism of the book will be most welcome in forthcoming editions. It is hoped that the book will prove even more useful to the students and users community.
