Handle every day-to-day calculation instantly and accurately. Now, a single authoritative reference offers you a surefire way to save time handling routine and non-routine calculations in the design, construction, rehab and maintenance of all types of structures. Edited by Tyler G. Hicks, Handbook of Civil Engineering Calculations explains and illustrates over 500 key calculations covering the entire field: structural steel engineering and design; reinforced and prestressed concrete; timber engineering; soil mechanics; surveying, route design, and highway bridges; fluid mechanics; pumps, piping, and hydro power;water supply and stormwater; sanitary wastewater treatment and control; and engineering economics.Using both customary and SI units, each calculation procedure includes a worked-out example with numbered steps. You see exactly how to compute the desired values for a particular design, and go quickly from data to finished design.
Manage everyday calculations instantly and accurately-saving you time in the design, construction, and maintenance of all types of structures
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.
Using both customary and SI units, this comprehensive engineer's must-have resource is exactly what you need to solve the civil engineering problems that come your way. From structural steel to reinforced concrete, from bridges and dams to highways and roads, Handbook of Civil Engineering Calculations, 2e, lets you handle all of these design calculations quickly-and more importantly, correctly.
