Knovel Library content covers 18 industrially important Subject Areas from more than 30 Sci-Tech publishers and professional societies including, McGraw Hill, John Wiley, Elsevier, Springer, Industrial Press, American Institute of Chemical Engineers and American Society of Mechanical Engineers. This data is enhanced with time-saving analytical tools to help analyze and manipulate the data equations and plot graphs, capture values from existing graphs and perform 'what if' experiments on the data.
Structural Engineers focus on designing the framework of structures, performing calculations, and analyzing the work of other engineers to make sure that the building remains safe and strong enough to resist all the stresses and pressures of the environment.
was formed to constantly improve the level of standard of practice of the structural engineering profession throughout the United States, and to provide an identifiable resource for those needing communication with the profession.
Transportation engineers design and analyze transportation system such as highways, railroads, airports, commuter trains and streets. They also supervise the maintenance of the transportation system to ensure the safety of the public and goods.
The program offers courses in planning, design and operation of multi-modal transportation facilities. It emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, supplementing engineering concepts with techniques from management, economics... (MORE INFO)
Transportation engineering is the application of technology, scientific principles, and integrated strategies focused on smart and sustainable development to planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for any mode of transportation for movement of people & goods.
Environmental engineers focus on helping the communities and improving the environmental quality by providing safe drinking water, and cleaning up contaminated groundwater. They also focus on the issues of sustainability, air pollution, waste disposal, and recycling.
The program offers an opportunity to pursue a broad range of interests in the fields of environmental and water resources engineering. The course of study is designed to meet an individual student's interests and career goals... (MORE INFO)
Advancing water resources and environmental solutions to achieve a sustainable future through Integration of technical expertise and public policy into planning, design, construction and operation of environmentally sound and sustainable infrastructure impacting air, land, and water resources.
The mission of EPA is to protect human health and the environment. EPA's purpose is to ensure that environmental protection contributes to making our communities and ecosystems diverse, sustainable and economically productive;
Geotechnical engineers focus on evaluating the behavior of earth materials, soil and rock on a construction project site. They also are responsible for designing and constructing tunnels, subways, waterways, and underground highway.
The program encompasses soil mechanics theory and applications in the fields of foundation and soil engineering. Course work emphasizes the engineering behavior of soil, soil property determination and the use of advanced soil mechanics theory...(MORE INFO)
Geotechnical engineering utilizes the disciplines of rock and soil mechanics to investigate subsurface conditions. Geotechnical engineering evaluations also include a review of the geologic conditions. These investigations are used to design, and build foundations, earth structures, and pavement sub-grades.
GeoWorld is an International Professional Network for geotechnical engineers. GeoWorld's mission is to create a professional networking tool where everyone involved in the broad field of geoengineering will have the opportunity to benefit from the continuous and interactive communication among colleagues, companies and professional organizations in the field.
Geotechnical engineering is the science that explains mechanics of soil and rock and its applications to the development of human kind. (Click on this link for more information about geotechnical engineering.)
