A generation of construction-management students has learned from the easy-to-follow, understandable material in Soils in Construction. By keeping math simple and emphasizing construction operations and applications over engineering theory, the authors have created an ideal resource for non-technical, management-focused courses. Students interested in the field applications of soils will gain the knowledge they need to interact confidently with geotechnical engineers in their careers. The book’s extensive discussion of soil materials in the first five chapters is supplemented by an appendix describing testing methods that can easily be adapted to the hands-on component of a course. The remaining seven chapters cover the role that soil materials play in various aspects of construction contracting. Every chapter ends with problems presenting students with the kinds of scenarios they’ll face in the field.
Facts101 is your complete guide to Soils In Construction. In this book, you will learn topics such as Soil Index Propertied/Soil Classification, Stress Analysis and Engineering Properties/The Contract, Interpretation of Soils Reports, and Embankment Construction and Control plus much more. With key features such as key terms, people and places, Facts101 gives you all the information you need to prepare for your next exam. Our practice tests are specific to the textbook and we have designed tools to make the most of your limited study time.
This international handbook is essential for geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists responsible for designing and constructing piled foundations. It explains general principles and practice and details current types of pile, piling equipment and methods. It includes calculations of the resistance of piles to compressive loads, pile groups under compressive loading, piled foundations for resisting uplift and lateral loading and the structural design of piles and pile groups. Marine structures, miscellaneous problems (including machinery foundations, underpinning, mining subsidence areas, contracts and frozen ground), durability of piled foundations, ground investigations, and pile testing are also covered. It introduces the 2005 version of Eurocode7, BS 8004 and other codes, and refers to BS 6349 on maritime structures, and new forms of civil engineering contracts suitable for piling projects. It includes numerous worked examples to the codes, many based on actual problems. It also gives very comprehensive information for students.
This seventh edition of Soil Mechanics, widely praised for its clarity, depth of explanation and extensive coverage, presents the fundamental principles of soil mechanics and illustrates how they are applied in practical situations. Worked examples throughout the book reinforce the explanations and a range of problems for the reader to solve provide further learning opportunities.
This manual shows you, in simple, easy -to-understand language, how to calculate the amount of dirt you'll have to move, the cost of owning and operating the machines you'll do it with, and finally, how to assign bid prices to each part of the job. Using clear, detailed illustrations and examples, the author makes it easy to follow and duplicate his system. The book ends with a complete sample estimate, from the take-off to completing the bid sheet.Included in this book: -- How to set up & use an organized & logical estimating system -- How to read plans & specs -- Why a site visit is mandatory -- How to assess accessibility & job difficulty -- How soil haracteristics can affect your estimate -- The best ways to evaluate subsurface conditions -- Figuring your overhead -- How to get the information you need from contour maps -- When you have to undercut -- Dealing with irregular regions and odd areas -- Factors for estimating swell and shrinkage -- Balancing the job: spoil & borrow -- Calculating machine owning & operating costs -- The two common methods of estimating earthwork quantities
Building Construction Handbook provides extensive coverage of building construction practice, processes and techniques, representing established procedures as well as those associated with recent amendments to the Building Regulations, British and European Standards and other related references. This approach, combined with the presentation of information in a highly illustrated and unique visual style, has proven this text to be a vital learning resource for thousands of building construction students, and an essential reference for professionals. The sixth edition has been updated and expanded to take into account many aspects of the new and revised Building Regulations and associated Approved Documents as applied to working practice; in particular, construction requirements for conserving and economising energy and reducing atmospheric pollution (as this relates to Building Regulations Part L - Conservation of fuel and power). This new edition also develops existing topics, including adaptation of buildings to ensure compatibility for the disabled, further details of masonry construction, applications of steel reinforcement to concrete, steel framed housing principles, sound insulation and additional details of structural glazing. Throughout, reference to supplementary regulations and standards are provided for further reading, and where appropriate, design calculations are included. Online lecture resources are provided, with power point slides available for a selection of topics, featuring essential illustrations for use with presentations and handouts. The Handbook is an invaluable reference for students. It consolidates several years of study material into one comprehensive volume, suitable for a wide range of building and construction courses, including NVQs in Construction and the Built Environment, BTEC Nationals and Higher Nationals in Building Services Engineering, Construction and Civil Engineering, as well as construction related undergraduate degrees (such as Built Environment, Civil Engineering, Building Surveying, Construction Management, Quantity Surveying, Building, Architectural Technology and Facilities Management) and professional examinations. Roger Greeno is a well-known author of construction texts. He has extensive practical and consultancy experience in the industry, in addition to lecturing at several colleges of further and higher education, and the University of Portsmouth. He has also examined for City & Guilds, Edexcel, the Chartered Institute of Building and the University of Reading. Roy Chudley's books on Building Construction have helped thousands of students gain their qualifications and pass exams. He was formerly a Senior Lecturer at Guildford College. * Topics presented in a highly visual and easy to understand layout * The market-leading bestseller for construction practice guidance * Ideal for students on general construction and building courses * An essential reference for the industry * Updated in line with revised Building Regulations * Website resources for lecturers available
