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.
Deals with the theory and practice of the supply of energy, energy management and auditing, and the design of sustainable energy facilities. This work considers the systems needed to create low-energy, sustainable buildings, including passive solar design, energy-efficient heating and air-conditioning, and combined heat and power.
Construction site visits are a popular way for undergraduate students to become acquainted with the practical aspects of construction, but these visits only show students a small proportion of the technology of construction.
How to build, conserve or renovate stone buildings in the authentic way. Learn how to uncover how buildings were constructed, and to renovate them sympathetically using traditional techniques and materials.
