Structural Steelwork: Design to Limit State Theory, Fourth Edition 4th Edition
Completely revised and updated, this fourth edition of Structural Steelwork: Design to Limit State Theory describes the design theory and code requirements for common structures, connections, elements, and frames. It provides a comprehensive introduction to structural steelwork design with detailed explanations of the principles underlying steel design. See what’s in the Fourth Edition: * All chapters updated and rearranged to comply with Eurocode 3 * Compliant with the other Eurocodes * Coverage of both UK and Singapore National Annexes * Illustrated with fully worked examples and practice problems The fourth edition of an established and popular text, the book provides guidance for students of structural and civil engineering and is also sufficiently informative for practising engineers and architects who need an introduction to the Eurocodes.

The complete guide to trenchless technology project management, planning, costs, and methods
Written by an expert in the field of pipeline system engineering, this book describes how to plan, schedule, and implement efficient, cost-effective trenchless technology piping projects. Filled with detailed illustrations and real-world examples, Trenchless Technology: Planning, Equipment, and Methods explains how to accurately compare the costs of trenchless projects, considering geotechnical and rock mass impacts, drilling fluids, and locating and tracking equipment.
This in-depth reference provides important information on how to estimate the cost of labor and equipment and schedule trenchless piping projects. A wide range of trenchless technology methods suitable for various ground and project conditions are discussed in this practical resource.
- Cost comparison of trenchless technology methods
- Planning for trenchless technology projects
- Project delivery methods
- Geotechnical considerations
- Rock mass properties impacts on trenchless project feasibility
- Tracking, locating, and planning tools for horizontal directional drilling
- Drilling and lubricating fluids
- Planning and construction requirements for horizontal direction drilling
- Horizontal auger boring
- Pipe ramming
- Microtunneling methods
- Pilot tube (or pilot tube microtunneling) method
- Pipe/box jacking and utility tunneling
- Cured-in-place-pipe method

“Prefab Architecture . . . is beyond theory, and beyond most of what we think we know about pods, containers, mods, and joints. This book is more than ‘Prefabrication 101.’ It is the Joy of Cooking writ large for the architecture and construction industries.”
—From the Foreword by James Timberlake, FAIA
The definitive reference on prefab architecture for architects and construction professionals
Written for architects and related design and construction professionals, Prefab Architecture is a guide to off-site construction, presenting the opportunities and challenges associated with designing and building with components, panels, and modules. It presents the drawbacks of building in situ (on-site) and demonstrates why prefabrication is the smarter choice for better integration of products and processes, more efficient delivery, and realizing more value in project life cycles. In addition, Prefab Architecture provides:
- A selected history of prefabrication from the Industrial Revolution to current computer numerical control, and a theory of production from integrated processes to lean manufacturing
- Coverage on the tradeoffs of off-site fabrication including scope, schedule, and cost with the associated principles of labor, risk, and quality
- Up-to-date products featuring examples of prefabricated structure, enclosure, service, and interior building systems
- Documentation on the constraints and execution of manufacturing, factory production, transportation, and assembly
- Dozens of recent examples of prefab projects by contemporary architects and fabricators including KieranTimberlake, SHoP Architects, Office dA, Michelle Kaufmann, and many others
In Prefab Architecture, the fresh approaches toward creating buildings that accurately convey mature and expanded green building methodologies make this book an important voice for adopting change in a construction industry entrenched in traditions of the past.
Provides a guide to the general principles of Scottish law relevant to construction contracts and the main provisions of the standard forms of construction contract used in Scotland including:
- the obligations of employers and contractors
- ending a construction contract
- collateral warranties
- dispute resolution
- regulatory matters
The new edition has been substantially updated and expanded to take account of the latest editions of the Scottish Standard Building Contracts and recent case law. Specific updates have been driven by the following changes to legislation and standard contracts
- Local Democracy Economic Development and Construction Act 2009 and the relative Scheme for Construction Contracts
- Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010
- Recognising the significant increase in use of NEC3 standard forms of contract, references to NEC3 provisions have been introduced throughout the relevant chapters so that each now covers the common law, the SBCC provisions and the NEC3 provisions.
It also features new chapters on: litigation; competition; the Bribery Act 2010; and guarantees and bonds.
Gain full access to the most critical updates in the International Building Code, including the real-world application of those changes and how they originated — all in a single, easy-to-use resource. SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE INTERNATIONAL BUILDING CODE 2015 Edition provides a comprehensive analysis of significant changes since the 2012 IBC , offering key insights into its contents and implications. Coverage includes changes made to both structural and non-structural provisions. Each change analysis features the affected code sections and identifies the change with strikethroughs and underlines to show modifications to the existing language. Each change is accompanied by a quick summary, detailed illustrations, and discussion of its significance, which brings the technical jargon of the code to life in a real-world setting. The attention to detail, logical organization, and thorough yet concise coverage found in this resource make it an ideal tool for transitioning from the 2012 IBC.
