Description:

Foundation Design and Construction has long been established as the most comprehensive and authoritative guide to the subject. The combination of soil engineering principles, design information, and construction details, makes this book an essential resource for undergraduates and practitioners alike. The text first introduces basic theory and then, by means of case studies, practical worked examples and design charts, develops an in-depth understanding of foundation design and construction methods.

Types of foundation covered include shallow strip, pad and raft, basement structures, driven and bored piles, and deep shafts.

PRACTICAL, PORTABLE, AND PACKED WITH UP-TO-DATE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING FORMULAS
Thoroughly revised with more than 300 new formulas, this compact yet comprehensive compilation puts essential data related to the design and analysis of engineering structures at your fingertips. Structural Engineering Formulas, Second Edition covers a wide range of topics, including statics, soils, foundations, retaining structures, pipes, and tunnels, and explains the use and application of each ready-to-use formula. This time-saving reference for civil engineers is also invaluable to students and those studying for licensing exams.

The 8th Edition, authored by David W. Johnston, North Carolina State University, is a major revision of the document to bring it up-to-date with “Guide to Formwork for Concrete (ACI 347R-14).” Revisions include referencing current standards and practices, removing outdated or irrelevant material, adding content on new developments in formwork technology and practice, and updating the look and layout of the document.
This edition considers the updated lateral pressure and other provisions now provided by ACI 347R-14. Expanded coverage is provided in SP-4 for wind loads on formwork specialized from ASCE/SEI 7-10 as modified by ASCE/SEI 37-14.

Description:

A septic tank is an underground chamber made of concrete, fiberglass, or plastic through which domestic wastewater (sewage) flows for basic treatment.[2] Settling and anaerobic processes reduce solids and organics, but the treatment efficiency is only moderate (referred to as “primary treatment”).[2] Septic tank systems are a type of simple onsite sewage facility (OSSF). They can be used in areas that are not connected to a sewerage system, such as rural areas. The treated liquid effluent is commonly disposed in a septic drain field, which provides further treatment. Nonetheless, groundwater pollution may occur and can be a problem.


Description:

Now in its fifth edition, this classic textbook continues to offer a well-tailored resource for beginning graduate students in geotechnical engineering. Further developing the basic concepts from undergraduate study, it provides a solid foundation for advanced study. This new edition addresses a variety of recent advances in the field and each section is updated. Braja Das particularly expands the content on consolidation, shear strength of soils, and both elastic and consolidation settlements of shallow foundations to accommodate modern developments. New material includes: Recently published correlations of maximum dry density and optimum moisture content of compaction Recent methods for determination of preconsolidation pressure.

Description:

The fifth edition of the Highway Capacity Manual (HCM2010), which updates HCM2000, will significantly update how engineers and planners assess the traffic and environmental effects of highway projects: It is the first HCM to provide an integrated multimodal approach to the analysis and evaluation of urban streets from the points of view of automobile drivers, transit passengers, bicyclists, and pedestrians; It is the first to address the proper application of micro-simulation analysis and the evaluation of those results; It is the first to discuss active traffic management in relation to both demand and capacity; and It is the first to provide specific tools and generalized service volume tables, to assist planners in quickly sizing future facilities.
The HCM 2010 has been split into: Volume 1 – Concepts; Volume 2 – Uninterrupted Flow; Volume 3 – Interrupted Flow

Description:

This book is written for young professionals and graduate students who have prior logic design background and want to learn how to use logic blocks to build a complete system from design specifications. My two-decade-long industry experience has taught me that engineers are “shape-oriented” people, and that they tend to learn from charts and diagrams. Therefore, the teaching method you will see in this textbook caters this mid-set: a lot of circuit schematics, block diagrams, timing diagrams, and examples supported by minimal text. The book has eight chapters. The first three chapters give a complete review of the logic design principles since rest of the chapters significantly depend on this review. Chapter 1 concentrates on the combinational logic design.

Description:

50 Housing Floor Plans is the second pack of the a+t research group collection that forms part of the Density series. Containing 50 floor plans from recent collective housing buildings (2000-2017) with different sizes and forms (Z-shape, Butterfly, Spine, Empty Circle, Cactus…), in addition to 50 housing units taken from projects.

The updated edition of the authoritative and comprehensive guide to construction practice
The revised fourth edition of Barry’s Advanced Construction of Buildings expands on the resource that has become a standard text on the construction of buildings. The fourth edition covers the construction of larger-scale buildings (primarily residential, commercial and industrial) constructed with load bearing frames in timber, concrete and steel; supported by chapters on offsite construction, piling, envelopes to framed buildings, fit-out and second fix, lifts and escalators, building pathology, upgrading and demolition.
