The combination of soil engineering principles, design information, and construction details, makes this book an essential resource for undergraduates and practitioners alike. The text first introduces basic theory and then, by means of case studies, practical worked examples and design charts, develops an in-depth understanding of foundation design and construction methods. Types of foundation covered include shallow strip, pad and raft, basement structures, driven and bored piles, and deep shafts. Practical information is also given on foundation design for swelling and shrinking clays, filled ground and mining subsidence areas. In addition the text contains a useful introduction to computer-aided design.http://rapidshare.com/files/276869339/0130311804.rar

Handbook of Building Materials for Fire Protection
Fire Protection Building Materials Handbook walks you through the challenging maze of choosing form the hundreds of commercially available materials used in buildings today and tells you which burn and /or are weakened during exposure to fire. It is the burning characteristics of materials, which usually allow fires to begin and propagate, and the degradation of materials that cause the most damage.http://rapidshare.com/files/283538208/0071388915Handbook.rar.html

Delay Analysis in Construction Contracts
This book is a practical guide to the process of delay analysis and includes an in-depth review of the primary methods of delay analysis, together with the assumptions that underlie the precise calculations required in any quantitative delay analysis. The techniques discussed can be used on projects of any size, under all forms of construction contract, both domestic and international.
Safety of Historical Stone Arch Bridges
The book particularly focuses on the probabilistic safety assessment of historical arch bridges, for which often only limited material and structural data is available. Although this type of bridge has proven to be an efficient construction type, it often poses the problem of insufficient numerical models of the load bearing behavior.http://uploading.com/files/484261a4/ArchBridges.rar/
Project Management Demystified
"Project Management Demystified" is valuable for both the novice project manager and the experienced. For the novice, it is a great way to understand PM basics in an easy-to-understand and practical way. Personalized stories demonstrate both what to do and what not to do. Experienced project managers will find 'gems' spread throughout the text to take away to improve their results.
Testing of Concrete in Structures
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the techniques involved in testing concrete in structures. The non-specialist civil engineer involved in assessment, repair or maintenance of concrete structures will find this a thorough update of the second edition.
