Concrete Box Culvert analysis and Design Excel Sheet

 Concrete Box Culvert analysis and Design Excel Sheet 

Box culverts are the structures that are used when the path of water in the natural stream crosses roads, railway lines, flyovers, etc. They are normally cheaper than bridges, which make them the natural stream passes through channels.

Electrical Machines Fundamentals of Electromechanical Energy Conversion

Electrical Machines Fundamentals of Electromechanical Energy Conversion 

Jacek F. Gieras

Preference :

This book endeavors to break the stereotype that basic electrical machine courses are limited only to transformers, DC brush machines, induction machines, and wound-field synchronous machines. It is intended to serve as a textbook for basic courses on Electrical Machines covering the fundamentals of the electromechanical energy conversion, transformers, classical electrical machines, i.e., DC brush machines, induction machines, wound-field rotor synchronous machines and modern electrical machines, i.e., switched reluctance machines (SRM) and permanent magnet (PM) brushless machines.



Content :
  • Preface. 
  • Introduction To Electromechanical Energy Conversion. Transformers. 
  • Switched-reluctance Machines. 
  • DC Machines. 
  • Windings Of Ac Machines. Induction Machines. 
  • Synchronous Machines.
  • Permanent Magnet Brushless Machines. 
  • Summary. 
  • Problems. 
  • Symbols and Abbreviations.

Geotechnical Engineering Investigation Handbook

Construction Management in Practice, 2nd Edition 

Roy E. Hunt

Preference :

Geotechnical engineering is a branch of civil engineering that concerns the study of the interrelationship between the geologic environment and the work done by humankind. Soil mechanics and rock mechanics are fields in which the mathematical aspects of analysis for the design of engineering works are defined and described as they relate to the geologic environment. Projects involving excavations in rock bear a close relationship to mining engineering. The basis on which the knowledge structure of geotechnical engineering is built is a thorough comprehension of the elements of the geologic environment. In reality, therefore, geotechnical engineering consists of two major, but separate, disciplines: geology and civil engineering.




Content :
  • Introduction
  • Investigation Methods and Procedures
  • Exploration
  • Measurement of Properties
  • Field Instrumentation
  • Characteristics of Geologic Materials and Formations
  • The Geologic Hazards
  • Ground Subsidence, Collapse, and Heave
  • Earthquakes
  • Appendices

Multi‐storey Precast Concrete Framed Structures

Multi-storey Precast Concrete Framed Structures 

Kim S. Elliott 

Preference :

Of all the major forms of multi-story building construction, structural precast concrete is perhaps
understood by the fewest practitioners. This is a significant ‘blind spot’ in that part of the building
profession associated with the design and construction of large or small multi-storey precast and
prestressed concrete frames. This is due mainly to two particular factors:
 The notion of using a modular form of construction, such as precast concrete, is not widely taught
at the undergraduate level because it is thought of as being too restrictive in the wider application of
theory and design instruction.
 Precast concrete design is usually carried out in-house by a small number of specialist engineers
employed by the precast manufacturing companies.




Content :
  • Precast Concepts, History, and Design Philosophy
  • Procurement and Documentation
  • Architectural and Framing Considerations
  • Design of Skeletal Structures
  • Design of Precast Floors Used in Precast Frames
  • Composite Construction
  • Design of Connections and Joints
  • Designing for Horizontal Load
  • Structural Integrity and the Design for Accidental Loading
  • Site Practice and Temporary Stability

Structural Foundations Manual for Low-Rise Buildings

Structural Foundations Manual for Low-Rise Buildings  

Michael F. Atkinson

Preference :

This book provides practical and buildable solutions for the design of foundations for housing and other low-rise buildings, especially those on abnormal or poor ground. A wealth of expert information and advice is brought together dealing with the key aspects a designer must consider in order to achieve effective and economic foundation designs. This second edition of the Structural Foundations Manual for Low-Rise Buildings has been completely updated in line with the new government guidelines on contaminated land and brown-field sites.




Content :
  • 1. Site Investigations. 
  • 2. Foundation design. 
  • 3. Foundations in cohesive soils. 
  • 4. Foundations in sands and gravels. 
  • 5. Building in mining localities. 
  • 6. Sites with trees. 
  • 7. Developing on sloping sites. 
  • 8. Building on filled ground. 
  • 9 Ground improvement. 
  • 10. Building up to existing buildings. 
  • 11. Contaminated land.

Practical Project Management: Tips, Tactics and Tools

Construction Management in Practice, 2nd Edition 

Harvey A. Levine

Preference :

Project Management has often been called the “accidental profession.” That designation has come about due to the preponderance of PM practitioners who have found their way to this field, not through a structured education or career strategy, but rather as a side trip from their planned careers. My side trip has lasted some 40 years and, thanks to many whom I have met along the way, the side trip has become a journey of discovery and fulfillment. This book records much of what I have learned and disseminated during that trip. Therefore, it is only fair that I express my gratitude not only to the direct contributors to this material, but also to those who helped to pave the way.




Content :
  • 1. Setting Up the Project Management Operation.
  • 2. Getting Started.
  • 3. Scheduling.
  • 4. Resource and Workforce Management.
  • 5. Budgeting and Cost Control.
  • 6. Risk Management and Contingency.
  • 7. Maintaining the Plan.
  • 8. Performance Measurement.
  • 9. Project Portfolio Management.
  • 10. Project Management, Enterprise Project Management, and Enterprise Resource Planning.
  • 11. Project Management and Professional Services Automation.
  • 12. Tools of the Trade.
  • 13. Making Project Management Work.

Structural Design of Buildings

Structural Design of Buildings 

Smith, Paul

Preference :

The intention of this publication is to embark on a journey taking the reader through a brief history of buildings, how the construction of buildings has evolved over the years, and then examining in more detail the structure of buildings and their principal elements. We also examine other factors that affect the stability and structure of buildings, including ground investigations and environmental factors, and detail the materials used in their construction. Finally, we examine structural failures of buildings, their likely causes, and common remedies.




Content :
  • The History of Buildings
  • Loadings and Aspects of Structural Theory Relating to Buildings
  • The Construction of Buildings
  • Steel
  • Concrete
  • Timber
  • Foundations
  • Walls
  • Floors
  • Roofs
  • Arches and Columns
  • Geology
  • Site Investigation
  • Stability of Buildings
  • Dimensions of Buildings
