Timber Bridges Book Excerpt:

Bridges built in timber are enjoying a significant revival, both for pedestrian and light traffic and increasingly for heavier loadings and longer spans. Timber's high strength-to-weight ratio, combined with the ease and speed of construction inherent in the off-site prefabrication methods used, make a timber bridge a suitable option in many different scenarios. This handbook gives technical guidance on forms, materials, structural design and construction techniques suitable for both small and large timber bridges. Eurocode 5 Part Two (BS EN 1995-2) for the first time provides an international standard for the construction of timber bridges, removing a potential obstacle for engineers where timber construction for bridges has not – in recent centuries at least – been usual. Clearly illustrated throughout, this guide explains how to make use of this oldest construction material in a modern context to create sustainable, aesthetically pleasing, practical and durable bridges. Worldwide examples include Tourand Creek Bridge, Canada; Toijala, Finland; Punt la Resgia, Switzerland; Pont de Crest, France; Almorere Pylon Bridge, the Netherlands.

An Introduction to Timber Engineering Book Excerpt:

Pergamon Series of Monographs on Furniture and Timber, Volume 10: An Introduction to Timber Engineering presents in readable form an understanding of timber engineering, which covers important aspects of the building industry particularly in the field of prefabrication. The chapters of this book present a good understanding of the many integrated divisions of the industry involved in timber engineering. The examples provided on design indicate the method of adapting normal structural analysis for use with timber and joint forms. Most of the information specified in this volume are British practices, but reference to other European and North American developments are also included to provide a fuller understanding of the industry as a whole and need for local variations to suit climatic conditions and raw material supplies. Some of the topics discussed include the timber engineering developments in Europe and North America; timber as a structural material; structural timber forms; mechanical joints; design of columns and struts; and preservation of timber from decay. This publication is a useful reference to building and engineering students.

Design and Management of Sustainable Built Environments Book Excerpt:

Climate change is believed to be a great challenge to built environment professionals in design and management. An integrated approach in delivering a sustainable built environment is desired by the built environment professional institutions. The aim of this book is to provide an advanced understanding of the key subjects required for the design and management of modern built environments to meet carbon emission reduction targets. In Design and Management of Sustainable Built Environments, an international group of experts provide comprehensive and the most up-to-date knowledge, covering sustainable urban and building design, management and assessment. The best practice case studies of the implementation of sustainable technology and management from the BRE Innovation Park are included. Design and Management of Sustainable Built Environments will be of interest to urban and building designers, environmental engineers, and building performance assessors. It will be particularly useful as a reference book for undergraduate and postgraduate students in the built environment field.

Breaking New Ground Book Excerpt:

Vigorous, colorful, bold and highly personal, Breaking New Ground is the autobiography of Gifford Pinchot, founder and first chief of the Forest Service. He tells a fascinating tale of his efforts, under President Theodore Roosevelt, to wrest the forests from economic special interests and to bring them under management for multiple- and long-range use. His philosophy of "the greatest good for the greatest number over the longest time" has become the foundation upon which this country's conservation policy is based. In a new introduction for this special commemorative edition, Char Miller of Trinity University and V. Alaric Sample of the Pinchot Institute for Conservation trace the evolution of Gifford Pinchot's career in the context of his personal life and the social and environmental issues of his time. They illuminate the courage and vision of the man whose leadership is central to the development of the profession of forestry in the United States. Breaking New Ground is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the basis of our present national forest policy, and the origins of the conservation movement.

Integrated Strategies in Architecture Book Excerpt:

This key text presents students with a holistic view of the building design process, bridging the gap between the theory and practice of constructing and assembling buildings. Integrated Strategies in Architecture encourages and enables students to gain a sound understanding of the purpose of buildings, the specialisms that contribute and the available technology. Zunde and Bougdah thoroughly introduce and expose the concepts and technologies that underlie the design process, setting current design in context as part of an evolutionary process, exemplified through historic and contemporary models, and emphasizing the importance of applying a broad variety of technologies in the creation of successful buildings. Topics covered include: space planning, colour theory, communication, management, aesthetics, structures and environmental control. This essential text will greatly assist students of architecture and its technology, construction management and building surveying as well as practitioners as they strive to build better buildings.
