This book offers a clear explanation of the principles and practiceof construction planning, programming and control during thepreparation and construction stages of a project. The book iswritten in the context of current procurement and contractualarrangements and JCT2005, NEC3 and ICE7 contracts are covered. Thestatutory framework within which construction projects must bemanaged is explained and the topic of construction hazard and riskis covered in... more...

This comprehensive introduction to rock mechanics treats the basics of rock mechanics in a clear and straightforward manner and discusses important design problems in terms of the mechanics of materials. This extended third edition includes an additional chapter on Foundations on Jointed Rock. Developed for a complete class in rock engineering, this volume uniquely combines the design of surface and underground rock excavations and... more...

This book introduces practising engineers and post-graduate students to modern approaches to seismic design, with a particular focus on reinforced concrete structures, earthquake resistant design of new buildings and assessment, repair and strengthening of existing buildings.

Structural engineering is central to the design of a building. How the building behaves when subjected to various forces – the weight of the materials used to build it, the weight of the occupants or the traffic it carries, the force of the wind etc – is fundamental to its stability. The alliance between architecture and structural engineering is therefore critical to the successful design and completion of the buildings and... more...

Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB is written for students who want to learn and apply numerical methods in order to solve problems in engineering and science. As such, the methods are motivated by problems rather than by mathematics. That said, sufficient theory is provided so that students come away with insight into the techniques and their shortcomings. McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on... more...


This book presents a rigorous treatment of the fundamental, mathematical behaviour of pavement structures under dynamic loading. The topic is of growing importance in economic design of aircraft runways and highway pavements. A range of modelling approaches are presented and compared with experimental data.

BS5950, the design code for structural steel, has been substantially revised. This timely book introduces design engineers to the use of BS5950 and gives the necessary information for them to be able to carry out satisfactory design for steel structures covered in the standard. This includes some guidance on loading and where further information may be obtained. The book discusses various clauses in BS5950 in the light of the basic theory and... more...

The Leading Guide To Site Design And Engineering—Revised And Updated Site Engineering for Landscape Architects is the topchoice for site engineering, planning, and construction courses aswell as for practitioners in the field, with easy-to-understandcoverage of the principles and techniques of basic site engineeringfor grading, drainage, earthwork, and road alignment. The SixthEdition has been revised to address the latest... more...

Structural Analysis, 8e, provides readers with a clear and thorough presentation of the theory and application of structural analysis as it applies to trusses, beams, and frames. Emphasis is placed on teaching readers to both model and analyze a structure. Procedures for Analysis, Hibbeler's problem solving methodologies, provides readers with a logical, orderly method to follow when applying theory.

This reference book presents the theory and methodology to conduct a finite element assessment of concrete structures subjected to chemically induced volumetric expansion in general and alkali aggregate reaction in particular. It is limited to models developed by the author, and focuses on how to best address a simple question: if a structure suffers from AAR, how is its structural integrity jeopardized, and when would the reaction... more...
