- Cengage Learning
A real life civil design project for site development is recreated through each chapter in this book to prepare readers for what to expect when working in the field. Coverage begins by introducing the basic setups and standards that anyone beginning a civil design CAD project should know, then moves on to the fundamental concepts common to most civil engineering projects such as grading, contours, and surveying. Readers will then explore the process of creating different types of drawings typically necessary for civil design and see how changing parts of a design can affect the entire project process. The book concludes with methods for estimating quantities for the different types of materials and work that will likely be encountered in an actual drafting assignment.
