This comprehensive handbook compiles the full scope of information necessary for effective and cost conscious contemporary highway design.
Advanced Methods of Structural Analysis aims to help its readers navigate through the vast field of structural analysis. The book aims to help its readers master the numerous methods used in structural analysis by focusing on the principal concepts, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
The Second Edition of this comprehensive and systematically organized text builds on the strength of the first edition, continuing to provide a clear and masterly exposition of the fundamentals of the theory of concrete design.
This particular book with title “Basic Civil Engineering” covers all the basic definitions, terminologies and everything related to civil engineering.
BIM and Construction Management, Second Edition is a complete integration guide, featuring practical advice, project tested methods and workflows, and tutorials for implementing Building Information Modeling and technology in construction.
This book provides guidance on building survey work for typical residential, commercial and industrial buildings, with advice on how to diagnose a wide range of defects.
It covers the syllabi of civil engineering diploma and draughtsman ship courses of all the State Boards for Engineering and Technical Education and Industrial Training Institutes of all the stat.
Construction Process Planning and Management provides you with the necessary tools to save time and money on your construction project.
This updated third edition contains new information on building image modeling (BIM) and its relationship to project scheduling and control, as well as thorough coverage of the latest developments in the field.
Foundation Design and Construction has long been established worldwide as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the subject for both the practising and student engineer.
Global Structural Analysis of Buildings is a practical reference on the design and assessment of building structures which will help the reader to check the safety and overall performance of buildings in minutes.
Covering all aspects of civil engineering calculations in an easy-to-understand format, the new edition of the Handbook of Civil Engineering Calculations is now revised and updated with over 500 key calculations that show you exactly how to compute the desired values for a particular design-going quickly from data to finished result.
A Textbook of Highway Engineering explains the fundamental concepts and principles of highway engineering in a straightforward manner. It covers topics related to the geometric design of highways. Various test methods/principles related to characterisation of pavement materials are discussed.
This book presents an integrated systems approach to the evaluation analysis design and maintenance of civil engineering systems. Addressing recent concerns about the worlds aging civil infrastructure and its environmental impact the author makes the case for why any civil infrastructure should be seen as part of a larger whole.
Detailed guidance is given on how and when the principle surveying instruments (theodolites, Total Stations, levels and GPS) should be used. Concepts and formulae needed to convert instrument readings into useful results are explained. Rigorous explanations of the theoretical aspects of surveying are given, while at the same time a wealth of useful advice about conducting a survey in practice is provided.
The present script as study guidance for the students taking the course on Risk and safety in Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering.
The stability of rock slopes is an important issue in both civil and mining engineering. On civil projects, rock cuts must be safe from rock falls and large-scale slope instability during both construction and operation.
Now in its sixth edition, Soil Mechanics Laboratory Manual is designed for the junior-level soil mechanics/geotechnical engineering laboratory course in civil engineering programs.
Introduction to Dynamics | Structural Dynamics in Relation to Earthquakes | Response of Structures to Earthquakes
By discussing statistical concepts in the context of transportation planning and operations, Transportation Statistics and Microsimulation provides the necessary background for making informed transportation-related decisions.
Light wooden framed structures were first created when some bright carpenters realised that the light partition walls they were putting up inside large heavy timber houses were capable of forming a construction system by themselves.
