The fifth in a series, it is intended for environmental and water resources engineers.
Engineers and technicians at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have investigated how fires cause office buildings’ floors to collapse, conducting tests that are hoped to lead to stronger building codes and improved design tools. The engineers…
In the area of new design, the book emphasizes the interpretation of building codes’ intent.
The publication is designed to promote learning from failures by disseminating published findings from eight documented investigations.
The 98-page soft-cover book is a resource for understanding subsurface utility engineering (SUE) and bringing up‐to‐date practices to the application of SUE for public works projects.
The book zeroes in on the enhancements needed in the design and construction of buildings and lifeline systems (communications, electric power, water, transportation) to support a community’s social stability, economic vitality, and environmental sustainability.
This Manual of Practice (MOP) is a valuable resource for structural engineers, architects, building officials, and academics concerned with performance-based design for structural fire safety.
This book aims to guide and encourage structural engineers to take an
active and meaningful role in green building development.
Papers cover smart sensing, uncertainty modeling in construction, modularity and adaptability, resilience-informed decision making, and multisector interdependencies.
The new 440-page hard cover manual of practice delves into embankment, concrete, and other types of dams.
With a flexible format, peer-instructor interaction, video lectures, and interactive course content, eLearning offers a fast way to meet continuing education goals.
