ISBN: 9780727730916
£140.25
The Institution of Civil Engineers has organised a series of conferences to celebrate, at the start of the New Millennium, the enormous achievements made in the field of bridge engineering in recent years. This volume of papers from the second of these conferences, held in Hong Kong, encompasses the state-of-the-art in bridge design, constructio

Historic Concrete: The Background to Appraisal

Author(s): Edited by James Sutherland, Dawn Humm and Mike Chrimes
Publication date: 14 December 2001
ISBN: 9780727728753
£168.25
In the last 100 years concrete has had a greater impact on our surroundings and indirectly on our way of life than any other material. This historical overview of the structural use of concrete will provide a valuable source of information for those dealing with this legacy. Britain has a vast number of concrete structures of varying ages. While th

Civil Engineering Heritage: London and the Thames Valley

Author(s): Edited by Denis Smith
Publication date: 11 December 2001
ISBN: 9780727728760
£29.00
This book deals with the civil engineering heritage of the capital and Thames Valley. The development of London has attracted the design and construction skills of a range of eminent civil engineers and contractors. The work of Sir Marc and I K Brunel, the Rennie family, Robert Stephenson, William Cubitt, Sir Joseph Bazelgette, and many others is i

Has Your House Got Cracks? A homeowner's guide to subsidence and heave damage, Second edition

Author(s): Freeman, Driscol and Littlejohn
Publication date: 01 December 2001
ISBN: 9780727730893
£40.75
This guide was commissioned by the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Building Research Establishment to provide practical guidance for homeowners whose properties have been affected by subsidence, or heave, or who are concerned by the potential risk of damage. The first, best-selling, edition dealt specifically with the problems associated

Properties and Use of Coal Fly Ash

Author(s): Lindon Sear, Quality Ash Association
Publication date: 15 October 2001
ISBN: 9780727730152
£100.00
This book draws together a large quantity of research that has been carried out on pulverised fuel ash (PFA) over the past 30 years. Fuel ash and fly ash are produced as waste from burining coal (or waste materials) and have many uses within the construction industry such as in concrete land reclamation, treating oil and sewage wastes, bricks and b

A Short Course in Soil and Rock Slope Engineering

Author(s): Noel Simons, Bruce Menzies and Marcus Matthews
Publication date: 28 September 2001
ISBN: 9780727728715
£100.00
This new addition to the 'Short Course' series combines both soil and rock slope engineering - in effect, two short courses - in one concise volume. Like its acclaimed companion volume A Short Course in Foundation Engineering, this book focuses on the essentials, explaining simple methods of stability analysis and applying them to a wide range of p

Manual of Numerical Methods in Concrete: Modelling and Applications Validated by Experimental and Site-Monitoring Data

Author(s): M Y H Bangash, Consulting Engineer
Publication date: 27 July 2001
ISBN: 9780727729460
£244.75
The modelling of constitutive equations to represent the isotropic and anisotropic behaviour of concrete in structures remains one of the most difficult tasks in structural engineering. At present, analyses on concrete structures are carried out for elastic, plastic and cracking conditions under static and dynamic and blast loads. The behaviour of

FRP composites: Life Extension and Strengthening of Metallic Structures: ICE Design and Practice Guide

Author(s): Edited by S S J Moy
Publication date: 01 July 2001
ISBN: 9780727730091
£31.00
Fibre reinforced polymer composites have been used for many years in the aircraft and shipbuilding industries. They are now being used in a variety of construction applications where their light weight, high strength, stiffness, durability, and ease of installation makes them cost-effective. This is particularly the case in the repair and rehabilit

Finite Element Analysis in Geotechnical Engineering: Volume two - Application

Author(s): D. M. Potts and L. Zdravkovic, Imperial College
Publication date: 25 May 2001
ISBN: 9780727727831
£135.25
This comprehensive new two-volume work provides the reader with a detailed insight into the use of the finite element method in geotechnical engineering. As specialist knowledge required to perform geotechnical finite element analysis is not normally part of a single engineering degree course, this lucid work will prove invaluable. It brings togeth
