Dr. Raina - presently the Technical Director at ITNL (IL&FS) - was until recently Technical Advisor to the US (PWA), MoW, Govt of Bahrain. Prior to that, he was Advisor for Bahrain - Qatar Causeway Sealink Project. Earlier he was Operations Advisor and independent Consultant to various Consulting organizations in the fields of Bridges, Contract Management and Contracts. Earlier he was Senior Expert and Consultant to the United Nations and the World Bank in many countries for many years. He also headed the United Nations Team of Experts in Saudi Arabia for the multi-billion Dollar extensive roads network development and maintenance program in the country. Raina's Field Manual for Highway and Bridge EngineersThe aim in writing this MANUAL is two-fold. One is to benefit those who may wish to receive exposure to actual professional practice from the 'scene of action' standpoint as distinct from a theoretical' classroom hyperbole that belongs to an almost imaginary world far from the sleeves-up workman-like life-size actuality! Second is to try and talk' to the engineer in short straight steps, explaining the subtleties enroute, in the vein of a story narrated informally, without 'mystifying' him with exotica. Descriptions have been written with clarity and brevity so that the engineer is neither overawed nor bored with jargon that is either too theoretical or oozing with impressive looking useless detail. This book takes the reader by the finger through the labyrinth of the subject in a workman-like manner, and thus caters for the contractor, the client and the practice-oriented engineer alike!
