Summary Construction Engineering Calculations and Rules of Thumb begins with a brief, but rigorous, introduction to the mathematics behind the equations that is followed by self-contained chapters concerning applications for all aspects of construction engineering. Design examples with step-by-step solutions, along with a generous amount of tables, schematics, and calculations are provided to facilitate more accurate solutions through all phases of a project, from planning, through construction and completion. Includes easy-to-read and understand tables, schematics, and calculations Presents examples with step-by-step calculations in both US and SI metric units Provides users with an illustrated, easy-to-understand approach to equations and calculation methods
