Introduction to Civil Engineering Systems A Systems Perspective to the Development of Civil Engineering Facilities By Samuel Labi

Description This book presents an integrated systems approach to the evaluation, analysis, design, and maintenance of civil engineering systems. Addressing recent concerns about the world’s aging civil infrastructure and its environmental impact, the author makes the case for why any civil infrastructure should be seen as part of a larger whole. He walks readers through all phases of a civil project, from feasibility assessment to construction to operations, explaining how to evaluate tasks and challenges at each phase using a holistic approach. Unique coverage of ethics, legal issues, and management…

Advanced Geotechnical Analyses By P.K.Banerjee and R.Butterfield

Introduction Geotechnical engineers have to deal with complex geometrical configurations as well as enormously difficult materials which exhibit, strongly, a path-dependent mechanical behavior. In addition, geological deposits display extensive inhomogeneities which are often difficult to define quantitatively. As a result, most geotechnical engineering design problems require significant use of the engineer’s imagination, creativity, judgment, common sense, and experience. To many geotechnical engineers, therefore, the role of any advanced analysis, particularly advanced computer-based analyses, remains undefined. The editors have therefore invited some outstanding engineers who are engaged not only in developing…
