foundation builders, field engineers, professional-engineer license examination
candidates, concrete specialists, timber-structure builders, and students
in a variety of civil engineering pursuits.

The book presents formulas needed in 13 different specialized branches of
civil engineering—beams and girders, columns, piles and piling, concrete
structures, timber engineering, surveying, soils and earthwork, building structures,
bridges, suspension cables, highways and roads, hydraulics and open
