When teaching structural analysis, some contend that students need broad exposure to many of the classical techniques of analysis, while others argue that learners benefit more from the computer-based analysis experiences that involve parametric studies. Structural Analysis, Understanding Behavior strikes a balance between these viewpoints. Students may no longer need to know every classical technique but they still need a fundamental knowledge of the concepts which come from studying a subset of classical techniques. This foundation is then strengthened by the use of structural analysis software in activities designed to promite self-discovery of structural concepts and behaviors. This text was developed with this goal in mind.
Surveying Sixth Edition is designed to cover the standard topics in a basic surveying course in a streamlined manner, meeting the learning needs of today's student. This text provides comprehensive yet concise coverage of the essential skills necessary in surveying and civil engineering, such as measurement, distance corrections, leveling, angles, area computation, computer calculations, topographic surveying, electronic distance measuring instruments, and construction surveying. The text includes photos and diagrams, lists of useful addresses and degree programs, surveying tables, and formulas. New co-authors Wayne A. Sarasua and William J. Davis bring a fresh perspective to this classic text. This text is suitable for students in a one-semester course at two and four-year colleges taking their first course on surveying.
This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Structural Steel Design, 5e, is ideal for undergraduate courses in Steel Design. It is also useful as a reference for civil and environmental engineering professionals.
This best selling text has been fully updated to conform to the latest American Manual of Steel Construction. The material is presented in an easy-to-read reader-friendly style.
Design of Reinforced Concrete, 10th Edition by Jack McCormac and Russell Brown, introduces the fundamentals of reinforced concrete design in a clear and comprehensive manner and grounded in the basic principles of mechanics of solids. Students build on their understanding of basic mechanics to learn new concepts such as compressive stress and strain in concrete, while applying current ACI Code.
The ninth edition of the best-selling Design of Reinforced Concrete continues the successful tradition of earlier editions by introducing the fundamentals of reinforced concrete design in a clear and understandable manner. The authors ground the design of reinforced concrete in the basic principles of mechanics of solids, so that students may build on their understanding of basic mechanics to learn new concepts such as compressive stress and strain in concrete while applying current ACI Code.The ninth edition has been updated to conform to the 2011 Building Code of the American Concrete Institute (ACI 318-11).Written for an introductory three credit hour undergraduate course on reinforced concrete design, this textbook also has sufficient material for a second three credit hour course. This text is also useful for practicing engineers, as it presents the latest requirements of the ACI design code.
