Reinforced Concrete Design: To Eurocode 2 (7th Revised Edition)
The best-selling Reinforced Concrete Design provides a straightforward and practical introduction to the principles and methods used in the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. The book contains many worked examples to illustrate the various aspects of design that are presented in the text. The seventh edition of the text has been fully revised and updated to reflect the interpretation and use of Eurocode 2 since its introduction. Students and practitioners, both in the UK and elsewhere in the world where Eurocode 2 has been adopted, will find it a concise guide both to the basic theory and to appropriate design procedures. Design charts, tables and formulae are included as design aids and, for ease of reference, an appendix contains a summary of important design information. Features of the seventh edition are: * Completely revised to reflect recent experience of the usage of Eurocode 2 since its introduction in 2004 and its adoption in the UK as a design standard in 2010 * Further examples of the theory put into practice * A new chapter on water retaining structures in accordance with Eurocode 2, Part 3 * New sections on, for example, design processes including conceptual design, deep beams and an expanded treatment of designing for fire resistance.

Now in its Fifth Edition, this essential textbook has been used by thousands of students annually in schools of architecture, engineering, and construction technology. The bestselling reference focuses on the basic materials and methods used in building construction, emphasizing common construction systems such as light wood frames, masonry bearing walls, steel frames, and reinforced concrete. New introductory material on the processes, organization, constraints, and choices in construction offers a better look at the management of construction. New sections covering the building envelope uncover the secrets to designing enclosures for thermal insulation, vapor retarders, air barriers, and moisture control. The Fifth Edition also features more axonometric detail drawings and revised photographs for a thoroughly illustrated approach and the latest IBC 2006, CSI MasterFormat, ASTM references, and LEED information.
“Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach” is a comprehensive reference that takes the reader through the whole process of field robotics, starting from the beginning ‘problem statement’ to the end ‘project demonstration’. It takes a practical approach, showing precisely how to realize a working robotic system, and bridges the gap between existing mathematically based texts and the real work that goes on in research labs all over the world.”Practical Field Robotics: A Systems Approach “includes an overview of field robotics and a detailed examination of hardware and software design. It also covers the equipment requirements, conceptual and operational designs, and safety and reliability for multiple field robots, including those used in nuclear service, underground mining and mowing.Problems are included with additional problems and supporting videos available on a companion website.
This write-in workbook is an invaluable resource to help students improve their Maths and English skills and help prepare for Level 1 and Level 2 Functional Skills exams. The real-life questions are all written in a Plumbing context to help students find essential Maths and English theory understandable, engaging and achievable. Written by Gary Taylor, lecturer with a wealth of experience in the Construction Multi-Skills and Plumbing industries, this workbook is an effective resource to support Maths and English learning in the classroom, at work and for personal study at home.
For courses in Structures or Structural Analysis and Design. Structures, Seventh Edition, offers single-volume coverage of all major topics in structural analysis and design. Focusing on how structures really work, the text discusses concepts from both engineering and architectural perspectives, exploring structural behavior, structural analysis, and design within a building context. In addition to the seventh edition being significantly updated, the structural analysis software-Multiframe- is now available online for students and instructors to download.
