Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Design to EC2: The Complete Process 2nd Edition
Concrete is an integral part of twenty-first century structural engineering and an understanding of how to analyze and design concrete structures is a vital part of your training as a structural engineer. With eurocode legislation increasingly replacing British Standards it’s also important to know how this affects the way you can work with concrete. Newly revised to Eurocode 2, this second edition retains the original’s emphasis on qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of concrete structures. Now expanded, with a new chapter dedicated to case studies, worked examples and exercise examples it’s an even more comprehensive guide to conceptual design, analysis and detailed design of concrete structures. The book provides civil and structural engineering students with complete coverage of the analysis and design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Great emphasis is placed on developing a qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of structures.

This text contains notes, worked examples, and solutions to tutorial questions that have been developed over a period of many years as a learning aid for undergraduate students studying Civil Engineering and/or Structural Engineering. Much of the material forms the basis for teaching within ENG469 Structural Analysis at Charles Darwin University (CDU), while the other material is similar in nature to that taught in Units in the earlier years of the BEng Degree in Civil Engineering at CDU. The text will be a useful learning and revision aid to students studying similar courses at other Universities in Australia and elsewhere. The production and format of this document have been developed from notes developed over many years, and have incorporated helpful suggestions from past students. This approach to teaching ‘difficult’ material to students has attracted favourable comments from students and academic staff alike.

The most complete resource for learning AutoCAD Civil 3D
Mastering AutoCAD Civil 3D is the ultimate guide to the new standard in civil engineering software. With combined experience in both civil engineering and Autodesk Civil 3D, authors Cyndy Davenport and Ishka Voiculescu guide you through the ins and outs of the program, from the fundamentals to the little-known tricks that make a big difference. The book focuses on real-world applications in professional environments, and presents topics and ideas not found anywhere else. Lessons begin simply, with an overview of the software and interface, and then gradually progress to more complex topics.
AutoCAD Civil 3D is the standard software for civil engineering and design. From surveying and mapping, to design, to documentation and analysis, the program offers expanded capabilities and complementary workflows, allowing easy integration with InfraWorks, Revit Structure, and more. The ability to complete a project within a single suite means increased productivity and continuity, which translates into quicker turnaround, better-designed structures, and streamlined project management. The savvy civil engineering professional must be well versed in the program’s full functionality as it expands throughout government agencies and private companies. This book features in-depth coverage of topics including:
- Surveying, points, and alignments
- Profiles, corridors, and grading
- LandXML and LDT project transfer
- Visualization, sheets, and project management
The book also features downloadable datasets that enable you to access the lessons most relevant to your needs, and includes an objectives map to help you prepare for the Civil 3D certification exam. For the civil engineering professional hoping to remain relevant in a changing industry, Mastering AutoCAD Civil 3D is the ultimate resource.
