Excerpts from review by H. I. Epstein, University of Connecticut
This new edition (3rd ed., CH, Apr'95) of this handbook is divided into seven sections covering the fields of civil, architectural, mechanical, electrical, chemical and process plant, water and wastewater, and environmental engineering. Within each section there are several major topics, further divided into numerous subtopics...
A previous edition of this work is cited in Books for College Libraries, 3e This resource for practicing engineers presents more than 5000 calculation procedures for solving common engineering problems. The volume is divided into sections corresponding to seven engineering disciplines: civil, architectural, mechanical, electrical, sanitary, environmental, and chemical. Utilizing a "cookbook" format, the handbook describes the problem to be solved; provides numbered calculation procedures to be followed; works out an example problem; and (in most instances) presents related calculations.
**** A classic compendium of step-by-step calculations for solving the most frequently encountered engineering problems, cited in BCL3, Sheehy, and Powell. This revised and updated edition (2nd ed., 1985) features some 5,000 direct and related calculation procedures for 13 different disciplines. It reflects the increased emphasis on environmental factors by adding a major new section on environmental engineering and stressing environmental concerns in the other 12 engineering areas as well. The volume is also updated to show changes in various codes and technical requirements, particularly those concerning safety and legal factors. Annotation c.
