IS 2809 -1972 Code Book PDF free download

This Indian Standard ( First Revision ) was adopted by the Indian Standards Institution on 25 February 1972, after the draft finalized by the Soil Engineering Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. A series of Indian Standards covering soil testing, site investigation for foundations, etc, is being published; this includes a large number of terms relating to soil engineering. The extensive use of these terms has necessitated the preparation of this glossary. This standard was first published in 1964. In this revision some new terms have been included; definitions of some terms already included have been changed and the physical dimensions are given in F, L and T instead of M, L and T. A number of definitions include symbols, and the units of measurements are also indicated. The symbols appear immediately after the name of the term, followed by the unit in parentheses. No significance should be placed on the order in which the symbols are presented where two or more are given for an individual term. The physical dimensions of quantities are indicated by capital letters as follows: F = Force L = Length T = Time D = Dimensionless Where synonymous terms are cross-referenced, the definition is included with the earlier term alphabetically. the later term is the more significant. Where this is not the case, In the formulation of this standard due weight age has been given to international co-ordination among the standards and practices prevailing in different countries in addition to relating it to the practices in the field in this country. This has been met by basing the standard on the following publications: MAST D 653-67 Terms and symbols relating to soil and rock mechanics. American Society for Testing and Materials. Progress report of the Committee on Definitions and Standards of the Soil Mechanics and Foundations Division. Proceedings of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
