Design Of Foundations For Wind Turbines, Henrik Svensson
Today, we build the most land-based wind turbines on strong and stiff soils, but probably in the future wind turbines will have to be built also on soils with less good properties.
Oil & Gas Plant Construction
The purpose of this presentation is to give an understanding of the Methods, Plant and Sequence to construct a Gas & Oil Plant. This presentation can be used to engage Stakeholders and to get the Site Teams commitment to the programme.
Surveying Fundamentals and Practices, Jerry Nathanson, Michael T. Lanzafama and...
Surveying Fundamentals and Practices is an introductory textbook for use in colleges or technical schools where a basic but practical approach to surveying is desired. It is of value primarily to students in civil and civil/construction technology programs.
The Principles and Practice of Surveying (PS) Reference Handbook
The Principles and Practice of Surveying (PS) Exam is a closed-book exam. The PS Reference Handbook supplied by NCEES is the only material you may use. The Handbook does not contain all the information required to answer every question on the exam.
Highway Slope Manual
The purpose of this Manual is to recommend a standard of good practice on slope engineering that is specific for the planning, investigation, design and construction of projects in Hong Kong that involve highway slopes and for their maintenance.
Highway Planning and Alignment
India has a large road network of over 3.314 million kilometers of roadways (2.1 million miles), making it 3rd largest road network in the world.
Human Errors In Structural Design And Construction, Ali Yousef Ali Al Amouri
The construction sector in the United Arab Emirates has witnessed an unparalleled growth in the past decade. In spite of recent challenges due to global recession, this sector remains strong in the Gulf region.
Seismic Analysis of Wind Turbines, Aitor Arrospide Sanz
Fragility analysis of a monopile based offshore wind turbine subjected to multi-hazard environment (wind, waves, currents and earthquakes) is conducted within the framework of this study.
Bridge Engineering Handbook, Ed. Wai-Fah Chen and Lian Duan
Planning and designing of bridges is part art and part compromise, the most significant aspect of structural engineering. It is the manifestation of the creative capability of designers and demonstrates their imagination, innovation and exploration.
Building Materials Engineering - Concrete
Concrete is often looked upon as “man made rock” or Rocklike Material. Is a mixture of Portland cement, water, aggregates, and in some cases, admixtures. The cement and water form a paste that hardens and bonds the aggregates together.
Highway Planning and Alignment
Road transport is one of the most common mode of transport. Roads in the form of track ways, human pathways etc. were used even from the pre-historic times. Since then many experiments were going on to make the riding safe and comfort.
Highway Material Characterization, Prof. Ujjval J. Solanki
Aggregate is the major component of all materials used in road construction. It is used in granular bases and sub- base, bituminous binder courses and in surface courses. Prepared by crushing the natural rocks.
Guide to Concrete Repair, Kurt F. von Fay
Concrete repairs have occurred on Reclamation projects since the first concrete was placed in 1903. Unfortunately, even though the best available knowledge and materials were used, many repair failures have occurred during the 112 years since that first concrete was placed.
Concrete Construction Products - Precast Handbook
In the continuous development of hardware for the precast industry, Dayton Superior places great emphasis on ensuring that material supplied from its manufacturing plants meets or exceeds safety requirements for lifting, handling and connecting precast concrete elements.
Pocket Book For Highway Engineers
The pocket book is divided in eighteen sections and gives information and guidelines on all aspects of highway engineering such as preliminary project preparation, detailed project preparation, procedure for inviting tenders and approval, construction procedure and maintenance.
Highway and Traffic Engineering, Bicky Agarwal
Most primitive mode of transport was by foot. These human pathways were developed for specific purpose leading to camp site, food, streams for drinking water. Invention of wheel led to development of animal drawn vehicles. Because of animal drawn vehicles, emerged the need of hard surface road.
Concrete Basements, R.S. Narayanan and C.H. Goodchild
Basements are common in many new developments, particularly in urban areas. The reasons for constructing below ground include overcoming planning restrictions on building height, providing car parking, residential, office, retail and storage/archive space, and accommodating plant rooms.
Highway Engineering, Dr. Manuel Muhi
The course is designed to follow the process of locating, designing, constructing and maintaining roads and highways. It covers the highway planning process and the principles of route location.
Steel Bridge Design Handbook : Corrosion Protection of Steel Bridges
Corrosion is a serious threat to the long-term function and integrity of a steel bridge. Structural steel will corrode if left unprotected or inadequately protected from the natural environment.
Synthetic Lightweight Aggregate for Highway Construction
The objective of this study was to develop a new product, Synthetic Lightweight Aggregate (SLA), from two materials, waste plastics, and fly ash, currently sent to the disposal facilities.
