Of all the PE exams, more people take the civil than any other discipline. The eight-hour, open-book, multiple-choice exam is given every April and October. The exam format is breadth-and-depth -- all examinees are tested on the breadth of civil engineering in the morning session; in the afternoon, they select one of five specialties to be tested on in-depth. Our civil PE books are current with the exam; they reflect the new format, and they reference all the same codes used on the exam.Quick Reference, which facilitates finding formulas during the exam; and subject-specific reviews on the complex areas of bridge and timber design. -- Organizes all important formulas for fast access during the exam -- Corresponds to topics in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual, 8th ed.

First published in 1995, the award-winning Civil Engineering Handbook soon became known as the field's definitive reference. To retain its standing as a complete, authoritative resource, the editors have incorporated into this edition the many changes in techniques, tools, and materials that over the last seven years have found their way into civil engineering research and practice. The Civil Engineering Handbook, Second Edition is more comprehensive than ever. You'll find new, updated, and expanded coverage in every section. In fact, more than 1/3 of the handbook is new or substantially revised. In particular you'll find increased focus on computing reflecting the rapid advances in computer technology that has revolutionized many aspects of civil engineering. You'll use it as a survey of the field, you'll use it to explore a particular subject, but most of all you'll use The Civil Engineering Handbook to answer the problems, questions, and conundrums you encounter in practice.

The Structural Depth Reference Manual prepares you for the structural depth section of the Civil PE exam. It provides a concise, yet comprehensive review of the structural depth section exam topics and highlights the most useful equations in the exam-adopted codes and standards. Solving methods--including ASD and LRFD for steel, strength design for concrete, and ASD for timber and masonry--are thoroughly explained. Throughout the book, cross references connect concepts and point you to additional relevant tables, figures, equations, and codes. More than 95 example problems demonstrate the application of concepts and equations. Each chapter includes practice problems so you can solve exam-like problems, and the step-by-step solutions allow you to check your solution approach. A thorough index directs you to the codes and concepts you will need during the exam. Topics Covered Design of Reinforced Masonry Design of Wood Structures Foundations Prestressed Concrete Design Reinforced Concrete Design Structural Steel Design

A well-written, hands-on, single-source guide to the professional practice of civil engineering 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 Engineer's Handbook of Professional Practice: Focuses on the business and management aspects of a civil engineer's 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.

Practice Problems for the Civil Engineering PE Exam contains 755 problems designed to help you identify important civil engineering topics and apply your knowledge to a variety of problems. Short, six-minute, multiple-choice problems demonstrate the format of the NCEES Civil PE exam and help you concentrate on a single subject. More complex problems combine several concepts, illustrate efficient and accurate solving methods, and familiarize you with the codes, standards, and references you'll need for the exam. Solutions are clear, complete, and easy to follow. U.S. customary and SI units are equally supported, and units are meticulously identified and rigorously carried through all calculations. Where multiple methodologies (e.g., ASD and LRFD) are permitted by the exam, both solutions are presented in this book. Frequent references back to the Civil Engineering Reference Manual and the original codes and standards direct you to support material when you need it. Prepare for the Civil PE Exam by Solving Problems--The More Problems, the Better Over 750 practice problems covering the topics, codes, and standards on the Civil PE exam More than 350 exam-like, multiple-choice practice problems Over 360 scenario-based and short answer problems Complete step-by-step solutions SI and U.S. Customary units used throughout Chapters that correspond to those in the Civil Engineering Reference Manual More than 130 tables and 530 figures What's New in the 13th Edition Over 370 revised and/or updated practice problems including structural, transportation, and construction practice problems that reflect NCEES-adopted codes and standards More than 65 new practice problems Use of consistent nomenclature between chapters Over 80 revised and/or new figures More than 15 revised and/or new tables Exam Topics Covered Construction: Earthwork Construction & Layout, Estimating Quantities & Costs, Construction Operations & Methods, Scheduling, Material Quality Control & Production, Temporary Structures, Worker Health, Safety, & Environment Geotechnical: Subsurface Exploration & Sampling, Engineering Properties of Soils & Materials, Soil Mechanics Analysis, Earth Structures, Shallow Foundations, Earth Retaining Structures, Deep Foundations Structural: Loadings, Analysis, Mechanics of Materials, Materials, Member Design, Design Criteria Transportation: Traffic Analysis, Geometric Design, Transportation Planning, Traffic Safety Water Resources & Environmental: Closed Conduit Hydraulics, Open Channel Hydraulics, Hydrology, Groundwater & Well Fields, Wastewater Treatment, Water Quality, Water Treatment, Engineering Economics
