The second edition of the Civil Engineering Handbook has been revised and updated to provide a comprehensive reference work and resource book covering the broad spectrum of civil engineering. This book has been written with the practicing civil engineer in mind. The ideal reader will be a BS- or MSclevel engineer with a need for a single reference source to use to keep abreast of new techniques and practices as well as to review standard practices. The Handbook stresses professional applications, placing great emphasis on ready-to-use materials. It contains many formulas and tables that give immediate solutions to common questions and problems arising from practical work. It also contains a brief description of the essential elements of each subject, thus enabling the reader to understand the fundamental background of these results and to think beyond them. Traditional as well as new and innovative practices are covered.
First published in 1995, the award-winning Civil Engineering Handbook soon became known as the field’s definitive reference. To retain its standing as a complete, authoritative resource, the editors have incorporated into this edition the many changes in techniques, tools, and materials that over the last seven years have found their way into civil engineering research and practice.The Civil Engineering Handbook, Second Edition is more comprehensive than ever. You’ll find new, updated, and expanded coverage in every section. In fact, more than 1/3 of the handbook is new or substantially revised. In particular you’ll find increased focus on computing reflecting the rapid advances in computer technology that has revolutionized many aspects of civil engineering. You’ll use it as a survey of the field, you’ll use it to explore a particular subject, but most of all you’ll use The Civil Engineering Handbook to answer the problems, questions, and conundrums you encounter in practice.
