Handbook of Civil Engineering Calculations Third Version by Tyler G. Hickss
This handbook presents a complete assortment of civil engineering calculation procedures helpful to practising civil engineers, surveyors, structural designers, drafters, candidates for skilled engineering licenses, and college students. Engineers in different disciplines—mechanical, electrical, chemical, environmental, and so on.—can even discover this handbook helpful for making occasional calculations outdoors their regular discipline of specialty. Every calculation process introduced on this handbook provides numbered steps for performing the calculation, together with a numerical instance illustrating the vital ideas within the process. Many procedures embody “Associated Calculations” feedback which develop the appliance of the computation technique introduced. All calculation procedures on this handbook use each the USCS (United States Customary System) and the SI (System Worldwide) for numerical models. Therefore, the calculation procedures introduced are helpful to engineers all through the world.
Main calculation procedures introduced on this handbook embody stress and pressure, flexural evaluation, deflection of beams, statically indeterminate constructions, metal beams and columns, riveted and welded connections, composite members, plate girders, load and resistance issue design technique (LRFD) for structural metal design, plastic design of metal constructions, bolstered and prestressed concrete engineering and design, surveying, route design, freeway bridges, timber engineering, soil mechanics, fluid mechanics, pumps, piping, water provide and water therapy, wastewater therapy and disposal, hydro energy, and engineering economics.
Every part of this handbook is designed to furnish complete protection of the subjects in it. The place there are main subtopics inside a piece, the part is split into elements to allow in-depth protection of every subtopic.
Civil engineers design buildings, bridges, highways, airports, water provide, sewage therapy, and a spread of different key constructions and amenities all through the world. As a result of of the significance of such constructions and amenities to the civilized world, civil engineers have lengthy wanted a handbook which might simplify and pace their each day design calculations. This handbook offers a solution to that want. Whereas there are pc packages that assist the civil engineer with a spread of engineering calculations, such packages are extremely specialised and do not need the breadth of protection this handbook offers. Additional, such pc packages are normally costly. As a result of of their excessive value, these pc packages will be justified solely when a civil engineer makes a quantity of repetitive calculations on virtually a each day foundation. In distinction, this handbook can be utilized within the workplace, discipline, drafting room, or laboratory. It offers industry-wide protection in a handy and inexpensive bundle.
As such, this handbook fills a long-existing want felt by civil engineers worldwide. In distinction, civil engineers utilizing civil-engineering pc packages usually discover dataentry time necessities are extreme for fast one-off-type calculations.
When one-offtype calculations are wanted, most civil engineers in the present day flip to their digital calculator, desktop or laptop computer pc and carry out the mandatory steps to acquire the answer desired. However the place repetitive calculations are required, a bought pc program will save time and vitality within the ordinary medium-size or giant civil-engineering design workplace. Small civil-engineering places of work typically resort to handbook calculation for even repetitive proce dures as a result of the funding for a number of main calculation packages is troublesome to justify in financial phrases.
Even when bought pc packages are extensively used, cautious civil engineers nonetheless insist on manually checking outcomes on a random foundation to make sure this system is correct. This checking will be speeded by any of the calculation procedures given on this handbook. Many civil engineers comment to the writer that they really feel safer, realizing they’ve manually verified the pc outcomes on a spot-check foundation. With legal responsibility for civilengineering designs extending past the lifetime of the designer, each civil engineer seeks the “safety blanket” supplied by handbook verification of the outcomes furnished by a pc program run on a desktop, laptop computer, or workstation pc. This handbook provides the instruments wanted for handbook verification of some 2,000 civil-engineering calculation procedures.
