Author(s): James Parkin, University of Technology, Sydney
Publication date: 13 May 1996
ISBN: 9780727725011
£57.25
Decision making is at the heart of managing. It is the retraceable expression of the process of organizing. Good decisions produce good outcomes for both the organization and the manager, and careers May be made or broken by a single decision. This book is a guide, designed for engineering managers, to the theory and practice of how good decisio

Design of Fastenings in Concrete

Author(s): Comité Euro-International du Béton
Publication date: 17 April 1996
ISBN: 9780727735669
£57.25
Although a large number of fastenings assembles are installed every day, understanding in the engineering community of their behaviour is limited, and there is no generally accepted design method. Design of fastenings in concrete overcomes this. This design guide is based on a safety concept using partial safety factors taken from the CEB/FIB Mo

Numerical Methods in Structural Mechanics

Author(s): Mr Zdenek Bittnar and Mr Jiri Sejnoha
Publication date: 05 April 1996
ISBN: 9780727725554
£52.75
Fast development of numerical methods in mechanics has been attracting an increasing number of students, researchers and design specialists from all branches of engineering. This book has been written to provide an understanding of the nature and the theoretical basis of the most widely used numerical methods - the finite element method (FEM) and t

Design Tables for Reinforced Laterally Loaded Masonry Panels: To BS 5628 Parts 1 and 2

Author(s): R Cheng, Consulting Engineer
Publication date: 04 April 1996
ISBN: 9780727725264
£35.00
Masonry walls are not isotropic; they have less strength in bending in the vertical direction than in the horizontal. The design of two-way spanning masonry panels under lateral loads is therefore complicated and tedious. The design tables in this book present a straightforward and practical approach to the design of rectangular lateral loaded p

Dredging: ICE design and practice guide

Author(s): Institution of Civil Engineers
Publication date: 06 October 1995
ISBN: 9780727720498
£38.25
Dredging is not only vital to maintain navigation, and therefore to international commerce, but also pays an important role in offshore engineering, the obtaining of aggregates for the construction industry, and in coastal defence works.This guide highlights the particular problems of excavating from underwater sites and describes the methods and e

Practical Risk Management in the Construction Industry

Publication date: 04 May 1995
ISBN: 9780727720641
£44.25
Until now there has been little information available to engineers to help them assimilate quickly the basic theories and practice of risk management; nor has information been widely available on the risk assessments actually produced and the risk management undertaken by those working in the construction industry .

Publication date: 07 April 1995
ISBN: 9780727720481
£100.00
In the twentieth century bridge engineers have seen many changes. Advances in technology, materials and engineers understanding of structural behaviour and methods of analysis has presented opportunities for innovation and have led to increasingly sophisticated solutions to the basic problem of providing a bridge over an obstacle. However, despi

Vegetation and Slopes: Stabilisation, Protection and Ecology

Author(s): Edited by D Barker
Publication date: 06 April 1995
ISBN: 9780727720313
£40.75
Recent concerns over the durability and whole-life costs of systems such as steel and concrete, has focused attention on the self-repairing ability of vegetation, and its low-tech and low whole-life cost and maintenance requirements. The awareness of the beneficial effects of vegetation has been increasing within the civil engineering profession, a
