  2. 2. Fundamentals of WiMAX : understanding broadband4 wireless networking / Jeffrey G. Andrews, Arunabha Ghosh, Rias Muhamed - This book on WiMax as a reference for designing WiMax radios. Trying to understand WiMax by reading the IEEE 802.16, 16e standards is difficult. The original 802.16-2004 standard was organized in a convoluted way. On top of that there were numerous errors, even in the mathematical formula and the critical system parameters. 16e was written as a errata and addendum to .16. Given the amount of major changes required by .16e, this format of a .16+.16e makes it almost impossible to read to gain engineering understanding.

  4. 4. Cold and hot forging : fundamentals and10 applications / edited by Taylan Altan, Gracious Ngaile, Gangshu Shen. - My field of work is impact extrusion of aluminum and this book verified what we were doing and gave some new ideas for the cold and hot forging of aluminum. I would recommend this book to anybody who works in cold or hot forging. Its a book any business involved in the field of forging needs to have on hand. Year : 2005 TS225 Call No : TS225 C688 foundation Work breakdown structures : the foundation for11 project management excellence / Eric S. Norman, Shelly A. Brotherton, Robert T. Fried. - This book is written for everyone responsible for project management or product development work. The topic of the book is a critically useful and important technique for describing and understanding any new product or project development. I applaud the efforts of the authors in showing not just the relevance of a WBS (Work Breakdown Structures) and WBS dictionary to planning a project but also to its execution. A significant contribution of this book is the prominent highlighting the scope of the project management function itself as one of the deliverables in the WBS. Year : 2008 HD693.

  6. 6. Building maintenance / Brian Wood.17 - Building Care encompasses everything from maintenance to energy conservation. But even though premises-related expenditure typically represents 15% of the running costs of a business, maintenance is still regarded as the Cinderella of the construction industry. Building Care challenges this attitude by elevating maintenance to its proper professional level and explaining new ideas in clear, understandable terms. Practical guidance is offered to those responsible for running buildings - surveyors, facility managers and facility managers - to help them carry out efficient and effective building care services. Brian Wood reflects the move away from long-term, technology-based maintenance programmes to more customer- focussed practices and covers a range of alternative approaches to looking after buildings and their users Year : 2009 Call No : TH3351 W873 Research methods for construction / Richard18 Fellows and Anita Liu. - This is one of the few books to provide guidance on research formulation, methodologies, and methods specifically for construction students.
