This classic text now available for the first time in line with Irish codes is aimed at students studying building measurement in the early years of quantity surveying and building degree courses. It contains a careful selection of worked examples embracing all the principal building elements and including a range of approaches.
This text aims to teach the basic principles of structures via simple explanations of the theory and numerous worked examples. The emphasis throughout is on problem based learning. The worked examples start from a fundamental level and progress to more intricate and taxing problems.
Against a backdrop of environmental standards becoming increasingly stringent, and the growing environmental consciousness of clients, the importance of life cycle assessment to those working in the built environment has increased dramatically. After outlining the framework for life cycle assessment, this book uses a r
Presents a discussion of the behaviour of steel structures and the criteria used in design according to the British version of EC3. This book aims to bridge the gap which occurs when attention is concentrated on methods of analysis and the sizing of structural components. It includes examples which illustrate the behaviour of steel structures.
New edition of the popular Carpentry and Joinery Level 2 Candidate Handbook from Heinemann, fully updated with new content and precisely aligned to the CAA Diploma specification, providing learners with the right tools for job.
The Civil Engineering Standard Method of Measurement - CESMM - has been well established for over 40 years as the standard for the preparation of bills of quantities in civil engineering work. This revised fourth edition, CESMM4 Revised, brings the method into line with the most recent developments in the railway industry.
Covers basic sheet-metal fabrication and welding engineering principles and applications. This book includes chapters on non-technical as well as subjects such as health and safety, personal development and communication of technical information. It also covers these areas of mechanical engineering and workshop practice in a practical style.
Suitable for structural engineers, this work discusses the structural use of timber, concrete, masonry and steelwork. It provides information on the behaviour and practical design of the main elements of the building structure. It is suitable for those whose studies include the design of structural elements.
