Civil Engineering Procedure (8th Edition) by ICE PublishingThis book is an indispensable guide which describes and explains the stages of work for a project from first consideration through to completion of construction and then beyond to handing over the resulting structures and services for use.
As in previous editions, the book provides clear explanations of a broad range of project and contract management principles and practice, and it is a valuable source of information on fundamental concepts. This Eighth Edition contains updates throughout the book, including coverage of recent initiatives to improve project and programme delivery, the latest updates to the NEC contracts, and additional case studies that provide insights into real-world practice. This book covers the following topics: concept and promotion; feasibility studies; procurement and contract strategy; design and Building Information Modelling (BIM); risk management and health, safety and welfare; planning and control of construction; construction management organization; testing, commissioning and handover operation, maintenance and asset management.

Fundamentals of Civil Engineering by Richard H. McCuen; Edna Z. Ezzell; Melanie K. WongWhile the ASCE Body of Knowledge(BOK2) is thecodified source for all technical and non-technical information necessary for those seeking to attain licensure in civil engineering, recent graduates have notoriously been lacking in the non-technical aspects even as they excel in the technical. Fundamentals of Civil Engineering: An Introduction to the ASCE Body of Knowledgeaddresses this shortfall and helps budding engineers develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes suggested and implied by the BOK2. Written as a resource for all of the non-technical outcomes not specifically covered in the BOK2, it details fundamental aspects of fourteen outcomes addressed in the second edition of the ASCE Body of Knowledgeand encourages a broader perspective and understanding of the role of civil engineers in society as well as the reciprocal influence between civil engineering and social evolution. With discussion questions and group activities at the end of each chapter, topics covered include humanities and social sciences, experimentation, sustainability, contemporary issues and historical perspectives, risk and uncertainty, communication, public policy, globalization, leadership and teamwork, and professional and ethical responsibilities. Suitable for both current and former students in pursuit of further breadth and depth of knowledge and professional maturity, this primer promotes introspection, self-evaluation, and self-learning. It details those attitudes that are essential to the achievement of personal and professional success and advancement to positions of leadership, and encourages an appreciation of the human values that are fundamental to professional practice.
Introduction to Design for Civil Engineers by R. S. Narayanan; A. W. BeebyAn Introduction to Design for Civil Engineersis a concise book that provides the reader with the necessary background on terminology used in design. With this book as a guide, entry-level students of civil engineering will better understand from the outset lectures on detailed subject areas. Drawing on a wealth of experience, the authors present a largely qualitative treatment of the subject matter with little mathematics. Descriptions are amplified with numerous illustrations. This book will be a useful aid for entry-level students of civil engineering and related disciplines such as structural engineering, building engineering and architecture. It will also prove beneficial for newly qualified professionals and others who want a concise guide to everyday design technology.
Probability, Statistics, and Decision for Civil Engineers by Jack R. Benjamin; C. Allin CornellDesigned as a primary text for civil engineering courses, as a supplementary text for courses in other areas, or for self-study by practicing engineers, this text covers the development of decision theory and the applications of probability within the field. Extensive use of examples and illustrations helps readers develop an in-depth appreciation for the theory's applications, which include strength of materials, soil mechanics, construction planning, and water-resource design. A focus on fundamentals includes such subjects as Bayesian statistical decision theory, subjective probability, and utility theory. This makes the material accessible to engineers trained in classical statistics and also provides a brief elementary introduction to probability. The coverage also addresses in detail the methods for analyzing engineering economic decisions in the face of uncertainty. An Appendix of tables makes this volume particularly useful as a reference text.
