The Engineer's Manual of Construction Site Planning

The Engineer's Manual of Construction Site Planning

Jüri Sutt

Preference :

This handbook deals with the problems of engineering preparation for building in a construction company, both during the bidding phase and after a contract has been concluded. The handbook’s recommendations can also be used in the design phase when the building contractor is not yet selected. In this case, it has the aim of assuring the constructability of the designed building and of calculating a control estimate for the owner in order that bids can be weighted and contractors’ potential duration of construction can be evaluated. In the design stage, the methods used are similar to those of the contractor in the bidding phase, when aggregated norms are used.




Content :
  • Introduction
  • Chapter 1: Initial data
  • Chapter 2: Outline of site management planning in the bidding stage
  • Chapter 3: Outline of site management after contract signature
  • Chapter 4: Suggestions for choosing construction cranes
  • Chapter 5: Suggestions for calculating resource requirements
  • Chapter 6: On-site safety requirements
  • Chapter 7: Requirements for work equipment

Mechanics and Strength of Materials

Mechanics and Strength of Materials 

Vitor Dias da Silva

Preference :

Materials are of a discrete nature since they are made of atoms and molecules, in the case of liquids and gases, or, in the case of solid materials, also of fibers, crystals, granules, associations of different materials, etc. The physical interactions between these constituent elements determine the behavior of the materials. Of the different facets of a material’s behavior, rheological behavior is needed for the Mechanics of Materials. It may be defined as the way the material deforms under the action of forces. The influence of those interactions on macroscopic material behavior is studied by sciences like the Physics of Solid State and has mostly been clarified, at least from a qualitative point of view. However, due to the extreme complexity of the phenomena that influence material behavior, the quantitative description based on these elementary interactions is still a relatively young field of scientific activity.

BIM for Design Firms

BIM for Design Firms 

François Lévy

Preference :

This is a personal book. It is largely informed by my career in architecture to date, the lessons I have discovered about the process of design, the mistakes I have made, and the colleagues, clients, and students from whom I have learned. It is anecdotal, which is not to say that it is not factual nor accurate. It hopes to be conversational in tone, and perhaps entertaining. Certainly, I have enjoyed sharing what I have come to know and believe about BIM (building information modeling). Before the term had been coined, I had begun to use a BIM process— albeit one higher on building modeling and lighter on the information. In part, this was motivated out of a sense of adventurousness, but primarily it seemed to be a promising methodology to explore design opportunities, from novel geometry to the quantitative analysis of thermal chimneys and rainwater harvesting.

Basic Earthquake Engineering: From Seismology to Analysis and Design

Basic Earthquake Engineering: From Seismology to Analysis and Design 

Halûk Sucuoğlu

Preference :

Earthquake engineering is generally considered as an advanced research area in engineering education. Most of the textbooks published in this field cover topics related to graduate education and research. There is a growing need, however, for the use of basic earthquake engineering knowledge, especially, in the earthquake resistant design of structural systems. Civil engineering graduates who are concerned with the structural design face the fundamental problems of earthquake engineering more frequently in their professional careers. Hence, an introductory level textbook covering the basic concepts of earthquake engineering and earthquake-resistant design is considered an essential educational instrument to serve this purpose. This book aims at introducing earthquake engineering to senior undergraduate students in civil engineering and to master’s students in structural engineering who do not have a particular background in this area.




Content :
  • 1 Nature of Earthquakes
  • 2 Seismic Hazard Assessment
  • 3 Response of Simple Structures to Earthquake Ground Motions.
  • 4 Earthquake Design Spectra

Fundamentals of Electric Circuits

Fundamentals of Electric Circuits

Charles K. Alexander

Preference :

Electric circuit theory and electromagnetic theory are the two fundamental theories upon which all branches of electrical engineering are built. Many branches of electrical engineering, such as power, electric machines, control, electronics, communications, and instrumentation, are based on electric circuit theory. Therefore, the basic electric circuit theory course is the most important course for an electrical engineering student, and always an excellent starting point for a beginning student in electrical engineering education. Circuit theory is also valuable to students specializing in other branches of the physical sciences because circuits are a good model for the study of energy systems in general, and because of the applied mathematics, physics, and topology involved. In electrical engineering, we are often interested in communicating or transferring energy from one point to another. To do this requires interconnection of electrical devices. Such interconnection is referred to as an electric circuit, and each component of the circuit is known as an element.

Building Construction Handbook Incorporating Current Building Construction Regulations

Building Construction Handbook 

R. Chudley

Preference :

This book presents the basic concepts of techniques of building construction, mainly by means of drawings illustrating typical construction details, processes and concepts. I have chosen this method because it reflects the primary means of communication on site between building designer and building contractor – the construction drawing or detail. It must be stressed that the drawings used here represent typical details, chosen to illustrate particular points of building construction or technology; they do not constitute the alpha and omega of any buildings design, detail or process. The principles they illustrate must therefore, in reality, be applied to the data of the particular problem or situation encountered. This new edition has been revised by Roger Greeno, in line with current building regulations.

Wind Loading of Structures 2nd Edition

Wind Loading of Structures 2nd Edition 

John Holmes

Preference :

Wind loading competes with seismic loading as the dominant environmental loading for structures. They have produced roughly equal amounts of damage over a long time period, although large damaging earthquakes occur less often than severe wind storms. On almost every day of the year a severe wind storm is happening somewhere on the earth—although many storms are small and localized. In the tropical oceans, the most severe of all wind events—tropical cyclones (including hurricanes and typhoons)—are generated. When these storms make landfall on populated coastlines, their effects can be devastating.




Content :
  • 1. The nature of wind storms and wind-induced damage
  • 2. Prediction of design wind speeds and structural safety
  • 3. Strong wind characteristics and turbulence
  • 4. Basic bluff-body aerodynamics
  • 5. Resonant dynamic response and effective static load distributions
  • 6. Internal pressures 
  • 7. Laboratory simulation of strong winds and wind loads 
  • 8. Low-rise buildings 
  • 9. Tall buildings 
  • 10. Large roofs and sports stadiums 
  • 11. Towers, chimneys and masts

Handbook of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning

Handbook of Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning 

Frank Kreith

Preference :

Buildings account for the largest sector of the U.S. economy. Construction, operation, and investment in buildings are industries to which every person is exposed daily. One of the major expenditures in the life cycle of a building is the operation of its space conditioning systems — heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) — dwarfing the initial cost of these systems or of even the entire building itself. Therefore, it is important to use the best, most current knowledge from the design phase onward through the building life cycle to minimize cost while maintaining a productive and comfortable indoor environment. HVAC systems are energy conversion systems — electricity is converted to cooling or natural gas is converted to heat. Because it is important to understand from the outset the nature of energy demands placed on HVAC systems, that subject is discussed immediately below. The chapter closes with a short outline of the rest of the book with its coverage of HVAC design, commissioning, operation, and problem diagnosis.

  • Introduction to the Buildings Sector
  • Fundamentals
  • Economic Aspects of Buildings

Railway Engineering 

Satish Chandra

Preference :

Railway engineering is a versatile subject that acquaints students systematically to the whole gamut of activities that take place in railways, starting from planning, design, and construction to operation and maintenance. Therefore, it is quite natural that the subject encompasses a wide range of engineering disciplines including civil, computer science, electrical, mechanical, and production engineering. Indian Railways has long been regarded as instrumental in India’s economic development. However, it is currently passing through a difficult phase where the challenges are many. In general, despite being the most energy-efficient as well as an eco-friendly mode of transport, the share of the Railways in total traffic carried has gone down drastically. In addition, there is a serious resource crunch that is pulling Indian Railways down. To face this challenge head-on, the Railways has plans to boost its traffic output by expanding the existing network. Further, modernizing the existing infrastructure, improving the passenger facilities, and most important of all, making rail travel safe and comfortable are seen as the long-term solutions to attract more passengers.

Reinforced Concrete Design To Eurocode 2

Reinforced Concrete Design To Eurocode 2 

John Bungey

Preference :

his text is developed from the established and well-known textbook Reinforced Concrete Design. It adopts the same format of presentation to cover the design and detailing of reinforced and prestressed concrete members and structures to the new Eurocode for the design of concrete structures (Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures, Part1). The book aims to give a straightforward and practical introduction to the principles and methods used in the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures and presents numerous worked examples to illustrate the various aspects of design. Although the detailed methods considered are generally according to EC2 much of the theory presented is also of a fundamental nature. Appropriate design charts, tables and formulae are presented as design aids and for ease of reference, a summary of important design equations together with design tables and charts are presented in the Appendix.

Engineering Mechanics for Structures

Engineering Mechanics for Structures 

Louis L. Bucciarelli

Preference :

This is a book about the Mechanics of Solids, Statics, the Strength of Materials, and Elasticity Theory. But that doesn’t mean a thing unless you have had a course in the Mechanics of Solids, Statics, the Strength of Materials, or Elasticity Theory. I assume you have not; let us try again: This is a book that builds upon what you were supposed to learn in your basic physics and mathematics courses last year. We will talk about forces – not political, but vector forces – about moments and torques, reactions, displacements, linear springs, and the requirements of static equilibrium of a particle or a rigid body. We will solve sets of linear algebraic equations and talk about when we can not find a unique solution to a set of linear algebraic equations. We will derive a whole raft of new equations that apply to particles, bodies, structures, and mechanisms; these will often contain the spatial derivatives of forces, moments, and displacements. You have seen a good bit of the basic stuff of this course before, but we will not assume you know the way to talk about, or work with, these concepts, principles, and methods so fundamental to our subject. So we will recast the basics in our own language, the language of engineering mechanics.

Computational Analysis and Design of Bridge Structures

Computational Analysis and Design of Bridge Structures 

Chung C. Fu

Preference :

Bridges consist of super- and substructures. Superstructures, often called bridge deck structures, are traditionally analyzed by the deck itself for load-distribution behavior. With the invention of computers and the creation of bridge-related software, the approximation can be minimized and tedious processes can be streamlined. It is now possible to change the structural parameters, even structural types, during the design process, because the computer program can now recalculate stresses, deflections, and internal forces in seconds. Through the advances in computer graphic capabilities, meshing in the preprocess and contour displaying on the fly in the post process are the norms of almost all bridge analysis and design computer programs. With today’s power of both hardware and software, more sophisticated three-dimensional (3D) finite element models have been used in the design of many major structures, in part or all. Based on current availability and future potential, high-performance computer hardware and advanced software technologies can even provide an unprecedented opportunity to develop a new generation of integrated analysis and design systems with roads and bridges to benefit not only new bridge design but also routine load rating and maintenance of existing bridges

BARRY’S INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION OF BUILDINGS

Barry's introduction to construction of buildings 

Stephen Emmitt

Preference :

Robin Barry’s The Construction of Buildings was first published in 1958. The books quickly became an established source of information for students of building design and construction, with their popularity demonstrated in numerous reprints and revised editions. Since the late 1950s, we have seen many changes in construction technology and the manner in which buildings are designed and constructed, some of which have been little more than passing fashions, many of which have had a lasting impact. Although some of our buildings may look very similar to those built in the past, the reality is that buildings are now built to higher performance standards and have to comply with far more extensive legislation than ever before. With the desire to build faster, cheaper, and to higher standards we have seen a shift in emphasis from the building site to off-site production in remote factories, a growing trend, but one that is by no means universal.

Essentials of Civil Engineering Materials

Essentials of Civil Engineering Materials

Kathryn E. Schulte Grahame

Preference :

Why Do Civil Engineers Need to Study Materials? The simple answer to the aforementioned question is that civil engineers build things— and building anything requires materials. Everything—built or natural—is made up of materials of some kind. Try to envision a bridge built without materials. That doesn’t even make sense! Clearly, materials are important. Answered another way, if we as civil engineers are to be trusted to build things, we want to reliably predict how the materials in those things (whether a building, a bridge, or a roadway) behave under the conditions for which they were designed. However, we, as good practicing engineers, want to smartly choose the materials we use, which requires some basic knowledge of the science of materials. Clearly, all disciplines of engineering, from civil to mechanical to electrical, need a working knowledge of materials. There is also an underlying motivation (but not necessarily a requirement) to select the best quality and type of materials for a given project’s specifications, not simply materials that “just work.”

Design and Analysis of Tall and Complex Structures

Design and Analysis of Tall and Complex Structures 

Feng Fu

Preference :

In the past decade, an increasing number of tall buildings and complex structures such as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing, and the London Aquatic Center was built. These projects demand that civil and structural engineers have the ability to handle the increasing difficulty in designing even more complicated projects such as tall buildings or structures with complex geometries. The effective design of these types of structures is based on a clear understanding of the behavior of the structures, relevant analysis theory, and method, knowledge of effective numerical modeling software, and of specific design principles. However, it has been noticed that, in the construction industry, most structural engineers find themselves lacking the relevant knowledge. In most universities, the basic design modules are taught to students. However, it is hard to find a module that has a systematic introduction to the design and analysis of tall and complex structures. Therefore, a book in this area is imperative.

  • Introduction
  • Fundamentals of Tall Building Design

Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures

Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures 

PANKAJ AGARWAL

Preference :

The vast devastation of engineered systems and facilities during the past few earthquakes has exposed serious deficiencies in the prevalent design and construction practices. These disasters have created a new awareness of disaster preparedness and mitigation. With increased awareness came the demand of learning resource material which directly addresses the requirements of professionals without any circumlocution. While the recommended codes of practice for earthquake resistant design do exist but those only specify a set of criteria for compliance. These design codes throw little light on the basic issue of how to design. The problem! Jl becomes more acute as students graduate with degrees in civil/structural engineering without any exposure to earthquake engineering in most of the universities/institutes. The short-term refresher courses routinely offered by various institutes and universities for professionals achieve little more than mere familiarization with the subject matter.

Theory Of Modeling And Simulation: Discrete Event And Iterative System Computational Foundations

Theory Of Modeling And Simulation 

Bernard P. Zeigler

Preference :

In this edition, two major contributors to the theory of modeling and simulation join with the original author to completely revise the original text. As suggested by its subtitle, the current book concentrates on the integration of the continuous and discrete paradigms for modeling and simulation. A second major theme is that of distributed simulation and its potential to support the co-existence of multiple formalisms in multiple model components. Although the material is mostly new, the presentation format remains the same. There are three major sections. Part I introduces a framework for modeling and simulation and the primary continuous and discrete approaches to making models and simulating them on computers. This part offers a unified view of the field that most books lack and, written in an informal manner, it can be used as instructional material for undergraduate and graduate courses.
