Overview

First published in 1995, the award-winning Civil Engineering Handbook soon became known as the field's definitive reference. To retain its standing as a complete, authoritative resource, the editors have incorporated into this edition the many changes in techniques, tools, and materials that over the last seven years have found their way into civil engineering research and practice.

The Civil Engineering Handbook, Second Edition is more comprehensive than ever. You'll find new, updated, and expanded coverage in every section. In fact, more than 1/3 of the handbook is new or substantially revised. In particular you'll find increased focus on computing reflecting the rapid advances in computer technology that has revolutionized many aspects of civil engineering.

You'll use it as a survey of the field, you'll use it to explore a particular subject, but most of all you'll use The Civil Engineering Handbook to answer the problems, questions, and conundrums you encounter in practice.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This hefty, comprehensive handbook presents information on nearly every aspect of civil engineering, including design techniques, construction methods, instrumentation, material properties, and calculations. Stressing applications, each topic's coverage includes both the fundamentals as well as ready-to-use materials. Traditional as well as new and innovative practices are covered, and modern CAD/CAE tools and approaches are featured throughout. The 67 chapters are divided into eight sections on construction, environmental, structural, geotechnical, surveying, hydraulic, materials, and transportation engineering. The second edition adds three chapters on value improvement methods, the quality of urban runoff, and composite steel-composite structures. Editors Chen (U. of Hawaii) and Liew is (National University of Singapore) have brought together the work of many contributors and have carefully edited and integrated the many components of this reference.

    It is ok

    Overall I am satisified with my purchase. My biggest complaint is althought the information you need is there the index is lacking, making it hard to find what you need. Only found a mistake but it was obvious, elastic modulus of steel 29x10E-6. I have been using this book to study for the PE and so far I have found what I am looking for. Just spend the time to get fimilar with this book and the location of the information. You can either tab the pages or there is plenty of room to make notes in the pages and in the table of contents.
