This handy book presents more than 2000 needed formulas for civil engineers to help them in the design office, in the field, and on a variety of construction jobs, anywhere in the world. These formulas are also useful to design drafters, structural engineers, bridge engineers, foundation builders, field engineers, professional-engineer license examination candidates, concrete specialists, timber-structure builders, and students in a variety of civil engineering pursuits.
The book presents formulas needed in 12 different specialized branches of civil engineering—beams and girders, columns, piles and piling, concrete structures, timber engineering, surveying, soils and earthwork, building strucures, bridges, suspension cables, highways and roads, and hydraulics and open channel flow. Key formulas are presented for each of these topics. Each formula is explained so the engineer, drafter, or designer knows how, where, and when to use the formula in professional work. Formula units are given in both the United States Customary System (USCS) and System International (SI). Hence, the text is usable throughout the world. To assist the civil engineer using this material in worldwide engineering practice, a comprehensive tabulation of conversion factors is presented in Chapter 1.
In assembling this collection of formulas, the author was guided by experts who recommended the areas of greatest need for a handy book of practical and applied civil engineering formulas.
Sources for the formulas presented here include the various regulatory and industry groups in the field of civil engineering, authors of recognized books on important topics in the field, drafters, researchers in the field of civil engineering, and a number of design engineers who work daily in the field of civil engineering. These sources are cited in the Acknowledgments.
When using any of the formulas in this book that may come from an industry or regulatory code, the user is cautioned to consult the latest version of the code. Formulas may be changed from one edition of a code to the next. In a work of this magnitude it is difficult to include the latest formulas from the numerous constantly changing codes. Hence, the formulas given here are those current at the time of publication of this book.
