  1. 1. ENLIB - New Books 2012) (July 2012)No. Details 1 Title : Civil engineers handbook of professional practice Authorors Authors : Karen Lee Hansen and Kent E. Zenobia. There is a growing understanding that to be competitive at an international level, civil engineers not only must build on their traditional strengths in technology and science but also must acquire greater mastery of the business of civil engineering. Project management, teamwork, ethics, leadership, and communication have been defined as essential to the successful practice of civil engineering by the ASCE in the 2008 landmark publication, Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge for the 21st Century (BOK2). This single-source guide is the first to take the practical skills defined by the ASCE BOK2 and provide illuminating techniques, quotes, case examples, problems, and information to assist the reader in addressing the many challenges facing civil engineers in the real world. Civil Engineers Handbook of Professional Practice: • Focuses on the business and management aspects of a civil engineers job, providing students and practitioners with sound business management principles • Addresses contemporary issues such as permitting, globalization, sustainability, and emerging technologies • Offers proven methods for balancing speed, quality, and price with contracting and legal issues in a client-oriented profession • Includes guidance on juggling career goals, life outside work, compensation, and growth From the challenge of sustainability to the rigors of problem recognition and solving, this book is an essential tool for those practicing civil engineering.

  2. 2. 2 blast- Title : Design of blast-resistant buildings in petrochemical facilities Author Author : American Society of Civil Engineers. Engineers. This report provides general guidelines for the structural design of blast-resistant petrochemical facilities, updating the 1997 original edition. Information is provided regarding U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements, design objectives, siting considerations, and load determination. References cite sources of detailed information. Detailed coverage is included for types of construction, dynamic material strengths, allowable response criteria, analysis methods, and design procedures. Typical details and ancillary considerations, such as doors and windows, are also included. A how-to discussion on the upgrade of existing buildings is provided for older facilities which may not meet current needs. Three example calculations are included to illustrate design procedures. Year : 2010 Call No. : TH4571 D457 2010 No.3 Title : Chemistry for environmental engineering and science Author: Clair N. Sawyer, Perry L. McCarty, Gene F. Parkin This is the definitive text in a market consisting of senior and graduate environmental engineering students who are taking a chemistry course. The text is divided into a chemistry fundamentals section and a section on water and wastewater analysis. In this new edition, the authors have retained the thorough, yet concise, coverage of basic chemical principles from general, physical, equilibrium, organic, biochemistry, colloid, and nuclear chemistry. In addition, the authors have retained their classic two-fold approach of (1) focusing on the aspects of chemistry that are particularly valuable for solving environmental problems, and (2) laying the groundwork for understanding water and wastewater analysis-a fundamental basis of environmental engineering practice and research.
