Overview

With a major reorganization and a plethora of new material, the Second Edition of this acclaimed book is designed to provide exposure to modeling ideas and concepts prior to introducing the mathematical process of model building. Network flow problems are emphasized by being presented separately from the general integer programming models that are considered. With an even broader range of examples and exercises that conclude many chapters, this book offers readers an extremely practical, accessible overview of the most modern skills available for the design, operation and evaluation of civil and environmental engineering systems. For professionals with a career in engineering, environmental science, economics, and/or construction.

Although the text produces some good examples within the chapter, the wordy descriptions and paragraphs made this a difficult read. I am reminded of my English professor telling us that science related majors tend to write poorly. Well, now I see why. As a plus, however, the book has plenty of problems for practice. (But no answers at the back to verify!) Just to give another positive comment, I liked the color of the book and the size. I usually keep my engineering texts, but I'll be selling this one back.
