Life of Thomas Telford, Civil Engineer Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This biography of the civil engineer Thomas Telford (1757-1834) was published in 1867 by Samuel Smiles (1812-1904), the author of Self-Help and of other biographies of engineers and innovators. Smiles had already written about Telford's life and achievements in Volume 2 of his Lives of the Engineers (which is also reissued in this series), but in returning to the topic he adds to this new edition an introductory section (taken from Volume 1 of Lives of the Engineers) on the history of roads in Britain, from prehistoric trackways, via the Romans, to the modern road-building system pioneered by John Metcalf (the extraordinary 'Blind Jack of Knaresborough') and Telford himself. This illustrated work gives engaging accounts from earlier writers of the perils of road travel, and also deals in detail with Telford's own career as a builder of roads, bridges and canals.


Geology for Geotechnical Engineers - 2853797032

Geology for Geotechnical Engineers Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

First published in 1982, the purpose of this textbook is to present civil engineers with sufficient information about geology to enable them to understand those aspects of the behaviour and properties of rock and soil that are relevant to the design of buildings, bridges, highways and dams. Geotechnical surveys are made so that building design can be matched to the ground below. Dr Harvey has deliberately restricted his use of geological terminology in order to make the presentation clear and easy to understand. The geological principles are fully illustrated by drawings. The author has taught courses on this subject for twenty years. He has based the book on his teaching experiences and has written it primarily for engineering students taking a first course in rock and soil mechanics.

Road Taken Bloomsbury Publishing

Physical infrastructure in the United States is crumbling. The American Society of Civil Engineers has, in its latest report, given American roads and bridges a grade of D and C+, respectively, and has described roughly sixty-five thousand bridges in the United States as "structurally deficient." This crisis--and one need look no further than the I-35W bridge collapse in Minnesota to see that it is indeed a crisis--shows little sign of abating short of a massive change in attitude amongst politicians and the American public. In The Road Taken, acclaimed historian Henry Petroski explores our core infrastructure from historical and contemporary perspectives and explains how essential their maintenance is to America's economic health. Recounting the long history behind America's highway system, Petroski reveals the genesis of our interstate numbering system (even roads go east-west, odd go north-south), the inspiration behind the center line that has divided roads for decades, and the creation of such taken-for-granted objects as guardrails, stop signs, and traffic lights--all crucial parts of our national and local infrastructure. His history of the rebuilding of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge reveals the complex and challenging interplay between government and industry inherent in the conception, funding, design, and building of major infrastructure projects, while his forensic analysis of the street he lives on--its potholes, gutters, and curbs--will engage homeowners everywhere. A compelling work of history, The Road Taken is also an urgent clarion call aimed at American citizens, politicians, and anyone with a vested interest in our economic well-being. The road we take in the next decade toward rebuilding our aging infrastructure will in large part determine our future national prosperity.

Design of Protection Dams Against Torrent Floods Elsevier Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Natural phenomena in mountains such as debris-flows and torrent floods put people and infrastructures at risk with dramatic consequences because of the intensity and suddenness of their floods. In this context, measures and emergency evacuation are often difficult to envisage. To limit risks, protection works against flash floods have therefore an essential role to reduce both the causes (â


Landmarks on the Iron Road - 2862289448

Landmarks on the Iron Road INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

American civil engineers were unsurpassed in their ability to build railroads over great distances and across high mountain passes, to erect great bridges, or to bore tunnels of prodigious length. This is a remarkable story of the application of engineering to the building of a transportation system that civilized and settled America, and then supported an industrial revolution and created a world power.
