Surveying

Publisher: Prentice Hall
ISBN: 0130482153
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Technology & Engineering

There have been many technological advances in surveying sinceSurveying with Construction Applicationswas first published. This fifth edition is up to date, with the latest information about advances in instrumentation technology, field data capture, and data processing techniques. Although surveying is becoming much more efficient and automated, the need for a clear understanding of the principles underlying all forms of survey measurement remains unchanged. Every effort has been made to keep this text on the leading edge of new developments in techniques and instrumentation, while maintaining complete coverage of traditional techniques and instrumentation. General surveying principles and techniques, used in all branches of surveying, are presented in Chapters 1 to 9. Contemporary applications for the construction of most civil projects are covered in Chapters 10 to 16. Not only is the current edition useful for the student, but it can also be used as a reference for the graduate who may choose a career in civil design or construction. Many new topics have been added to this edition; as a result, some topics have been shifted from the text proper to the appendixes. Moving the evolution of surveying to Appendix G has shortened Chapter 1. Chapter 2 has been expanded to include electronic distance measurement (EDM). The topic of taping corrections has been moved from Chapter 2 to Appendix F. Chapters 3 and 4 have also been streamlined by moving the discussion of four-screw instruments (the dumpy level and vernier transit) to Appendix G. Chapter 5, now called Total Stations, has been revised to more clearly present total station basic operations. Chapter 7 has been completely revised to introduce the concept of geomatics. The techniques of traditional data collection have been expanded because the student is introduced now to the data-collection techniques involved in airborne and satellite imaging. The topic of mapping has been expanded by the inclusion of introductory GIS topics. Chapters 8 and 9 (Global Positioning Systems — GPS, and Construction Control Surveying) have been revised and switched in order of inclusion in the text. The Instructor's Manual includes solutions for end-of-chapter problems; a typical evaluation scheme; subject outlines (two terms or two semester programs); term assignments; sample instruction class handouts for instrument use, etc.; and mid-term and final tests. Also included for the first time is a PowerPoint CD presentation that can be used both as an aid in presenting text material and as a source for overhead projector transparencies. The surveyor now has to struggle to keep up with the amazing explosion of technology advances. These advances have both deepened and broadened the traditional field of surveying. It is my hope that students using this text will be completely up to date in this subject area whether they continue their education in surveying or they seek employment in this rewarding field.

AutoCAD 2019 Instructor

Publisher: SDC Publications
ISBN: 9781630571849
Release Date: 2018-07-02
Genre: Computers

This book is your AutoCAD 2019 Instructor. The objective of this book is to provide you with extensive knowledge of AutoCAD, whether you are taking an instructor-led course or learning on your own. AutoCAD 2019 Instructor maintains the pedagogy and in-depth coverage that have always been the hallmark of the Leach texts. As the top-selling university textbook for almost a decade, the AutoCAD Instructor series continues to deliver broad coverage of AutoCAD in a structured, easy-to-comprehend manner. AutoCAD 2019 Instructor is command-oriented, just like AutoCAD. Chapters are structured around related commands, similar to the organization of AutoCAD’s menu system. The sequence of chapters starts with fundamental drawing commands and skills and then progresses to more elaborate procedures and specialized applications. The writing style introduces small pieces of information explained in simple form, and then builds on that knowledge to deliver more complex drawing strategies, requiring a synthesis of earlier concepts. Over 2000 figures illustrate the commands, features, and ideas. AutoCAD 2019 Instructor is an ideal reference guide, unlike tutorial-oriented books where specific information is hard to relocate. Because these chapters focus on related commands, and complete coverage for each command is given in one place, the commands, procedures, and applications are easy to reference. Tabbed pages help locate tables, lists, appendices, and the comprehensive index. What makes this book unique?In depth coverage of AutoCAD 2019 commands and featuresCommand Tables indicate where to locate and how to start each commandTIP markers in the margin provide important tips, notes, reminders, short-cuts and identify what's newComplete chapter exercises with many multi-chapter “REUSE” problemsWell suited for a two or three course sequence

Civil Engineer s Reference Book

Author: L S Blake
Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9781483102337
Release Date: 2013-10-22
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Civil Engineer's Reference Book, Fourth Edition provides civil engineers with reports on design and construction practices in the UK and overseas. It gives a concise presentation of theory and practice in the many branches of a civil engineer's profession and it enables them to study a subject in greater depth. The book discusses some improvements in earlier practices, for example in surveying, geotechnics, water management, project management, underwater working, and the control and use of materials. Other changes covered are from the evolving needs of clients for almost all forms of construction, maintenance and repair. Another major change is the introduction of new national and Euro-codes based on limit state design, covering most aspects of structural engineering. The fourth edition incorporates these advances and, at the same time, gives greater prominence to the special problems relating to work overseas, with differing client requirements and climatic conditions. Chapters 1 to 10 provide engineers, at all levels of development, with 'lecture notes' on the basic theories of civil engineering. Chapters 11 to 44 cover the practice of design and construction in many of the fields of civil engineering. Civil engineers, architects, lawyers, mechanical engineers, insurers, clients, and students of civil engineering will find benefit in the use of this text.
