Highway Engineering Book Excerpt:

★ABOUT THE BOOK: After the First World War the importance of highways was felt and realized. The concept of highway engineering has changed during the last two decades. The thumb rule concept has become a thing of the past. With the increasing importance of highways for the prosperity and integrity of the country and with the increasing cost of construction and maintenance of highways, the trend of construction, planning and designing has also changed. The Central Road Research Institute and P.W.D. research centers all over the country have contributed a lot in the design, planning road user safety, construction and economy etc. The present work is the outcome of author’s long association with the subject as a teacher and as a student. Efforts have been made to present the subject matter in a very lucid and comprehensive manner. The author does not claim any originality but sufficient pains have been taken in compiling the work by consulting important works and Road Research Journals. The subject matter is presented from the introduction so that the book may prove useful to diploma and degree students as well as practising engineers. The book presents acceptable theory and construction practices. Important topics such as bituminous roads, stabilized earth roads, traffic engineering, pavement design and highway planning and economics have been comprehensively dealt. Hill Roads including construction and layout of tunnels have been given special emphasis. Airport engineering, though it is not a part of highway engineering, has also been touched so as to introduce the subject matter. I take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Padamshri R.S. Gahlowt, Chairman and Managing Director (Retd). Hindustan Steel Co. Ltd. for his valuable guidance, help and blessings and my friend and colleague Shri G.S. Birdie, Consulting Engineer for the preparation of a large number of drawings and consultations. Any suggestion for the improvement of the book in the forthcoming editions will be thankfully acknowledged and welcomed. For errors or omissions and constructive criticism from the readers and users are welcome. Allahabad T.D. AHUJA 2011 ★OUTSTANDING FEATURES: -Various designs of the Highway Engineering are based on the latest IS Codes. -Several empirical methods of estimating. Evapotranspiration such as modified penman method, hargreaves methods, modified blaney criddle method, etc., are discussed. -Treatment of earthquake forces acting on gravity dams is thoroughly explained. -Detailed discussion regarding the provision of water stops at the contraction joints in gravity dams as per IS Codes is made. -Some aspects of financial analysis of a project are discussed with planning for water resources development. -Number of design problems have been solved in details. -Subject matter is supported by very good diagrams and illustrative examples. -A large number of multiple choice questions with answers are given. ★RECOMMENDATIONS: A textbook for all Engineering Branches, Competitive Examination, ICS, and AMIE Examinations In S.I Units For Degree, Diploma and A.I.M.E.

Traffic Highway Engineering Book Excerpt:

The new edition of Garber and Hoel's best-selling text focuses on giving students insight into all facets of traffic and highway engineering. Students generally come to this course with little knowledge or understanding of the importance of transportation, much less of the extensive career opportunities within the field. Transportation is an extremely broad field, and courses must either cover all transportation modes or focus on specifics. While many topics can be covered with a survey approach, this often lacks sufficient depth and students leave the course without a full understanding of any of the fields. This text focuses exclusively on traffic and highway engineering beginning with a discussion of the pivotal role transportation plays in our society, including employment opportunities, historical impact, and the impact of transportation on our daily lives. This approach gives students a sense of what the field is about as well as an opportunity to consider some of its challenges. Later chapters focus on specific issues facing transportation engineers. The text uses pedagogical tools such as worked problems, diagrams and tables, reference material, and realistic examples to demonstrate how the material is applied.

Perspectives in Civil Engineering Book Excerpt:

This report contains 27 papers that serve as a testament to the state-of-the-art of civil engineering at the outset of the 21st century, as well as to commemorate the ASCE's Sesquicentennial. Written by the leading practitioners, educators, and researchers of civil engineering, each of these peer-reviewed papers explores a particular aspect of civil engineering knowledge and practice. Each paper explores the development of a particular civil engineering specialty, including milestones and future barriers, constraints, and opportunities. The papers celebrate the history, heritage, and accomplishments of the profession in all facets of practice, including construction facilities, special structures, engineering mechanics, surveying and mapping, irrigation and water quality, forensics, computing, materials, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, and transportation engineering. While each paper is unique, collectively they provide a snapshot of the profession while offering thoughtful predictions of likely developments in the years to come. Together the papers illuminate the mounting complexity facing civil engineering stemming from rapid growth in scientific knowledge, technological development, and human populations, especially in the last 50 years. An overarching theme is the need for systems-level approaches and consideration from undergraduate education through advanced engineering materials, processes, technologies, and design methods and tools. These papers speak to the need for civil engineers of all specialties to recognize and embrace the growing interconnectedness of the global infrastructure, economy, society, and the need to work for more sustainable, life-cycle-oriented solutions. While embracing the past and the present, the papers collected here clearly have an eye on the future needs of ASCE and the civil engineering profession.
