1.Materials for Civil and Construction Engineers (3rd Edition) [Hardcover]

Book Description

Publication Date: February 27, 2010 | ISBN-10: 0136110584 | ISBN-13: 978-0136110583 | Edition: 3

Materials for Civil and Construction Engineers, 3/e is ideal for courses in Civil Engineering Materials, Construction Materials, and Construction Methods and Materials offered in Civil, Environmental, or Construction engineering departments.

This introduction gives students a basic understanding of the material selection process and the behavior of materials — a fundamental requirement for all civil and construction engineers performing design, construction, and maintenance. The authors cover the various materials used by civil and construction engineers in one useful reference, limiting the vast amount of information available to the introductory level, concentrating on current practices, and extracting information that is relevant to the general education of civil and construction engineers. A large number of experiments, figures, sample problems, test methods, and homework problems gives students opportunity for practice and review.

Book Description

Publication Date: May 27, 2005 | ISBN-10: 0314156119 | ISBN-13: 978-0314156112 | Edition: 4

The Fourth Edition of the Hornbook on Civil Procedure gives a straightforward, “no-nonsense” assessment of the law as it exists, including the highlighting of areas where cases conflict or there is some other uncertainty in the law. This method of direct analysis provides answers when needed, benefiting students, professors, and practitioners alike. Important new cases have been added or substituted as the situation dictates; some of the most dramatic alterations in the material involve significant amendments to the Federal Discovery Rules promulgated after the last edition.

5.Civil Disobedience: And Other Political Writings [Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: October 6, 2010 | ISBN-10: 1453874496 | ISBN-13: 978-1453874493

For Henry David Thoreau, there was no separation between public politics and personal principle. "On the Duty of Civil Disobedience" is his famous account of the night he spent in jail for refusing to pay taxes to a government that supported slavery and waged war. His impassioned stand for justice later inspired Gandhi, Martin Luther King, and many other peaceful revolutionaries. This volume includes Thoreau's other important political writings: "A Plea for Captain John Brown," "Life Without Principle," and the poem "Independence."

6.Engineering the City: How Infrastructure Works [Paperback]

Book Description

Publication Date: October 1, 2000 | Age Level: 9 and up | Grade Level: 4 and up

How does a city obtain water, gas, and electricity? Where do these services come from? How are they transported? The answer is infrastructure, or the inner, and sometimes invisible, workings of the city. Roads, railroads, bridges, telephone wires, and power lines are visible elements of the infrastructure; sewers, plumbing pipes, wires, tunnels, cables, and sometimes rails are usually buried underground or hidden behind walls. Engineering the City tells the fascinating story of infrastructure as it developed through history along with the growth of cities. Experiments, games, and construction diagrams show how these structures are built, how they work, and how they affect the environment of the city and the land outside it.

8.Civil Engineer's Handbook of Professional Practice [Hardcover]

Book Description

Publication Date: April 26, 2011 | ISBN-10: 047043841X | ISBN-13: 978-0470438411 | Edition: 1

A well-written, hands-on, single-source guide to the professional practice of civil engineering
There is a growing understanding that to be competitive at an international level, civil engineers not only must build on their traditional strengths in technology and science but also must acquire greater mastery of the business of civil engineering. Project management, teamwork, ethics, leadership, and communication have been defined as essential to the successful practice of civil engineering by the ASCE in the 2008 landmark publication, Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge for the 21st Century (BOK2). This single-source guide is the first to take the practical skills defined by the ASCE BOK2 and provide illuminating techniques, quotes, case examples, problems, and information to assist the reader in addressing the many challenges facing civil engineers in the real world. Civil Engineer's Handbook of Professional Practice:
  • Focuses on the business and management aspects of a civil engineer's job, providing students and practitioners with sound business management principles
  • Addresses contemporary issues such as permitting, globalization, sustainability, and emerging technologies
  • Offers proven methods for balancing speed, quality, and price with contracting and legal issues in a client-oriented profession
  • Includes guidance on juggling career goals, life outside work, compensation, and growth
From the challenge of sustainability to the rigors of problem recognition and solving, this book is an essential tool for those practicing civil engineering.
