SURVEYING: PRINCIPLES & APPLICATIONS, 9/e is the clearest, easiest to understand, and most useful introduction to surveying as it is practiced today. It brings together expert coverage of surveying principles, remote sensing and other new advances in technological instrumentation, and modern applications for everything from mapping to engineering. Designed for maximum simplicity, it also covers sophisticated topics typically discussed in advanced surveying courses. This edition has been reorganized and streamlined to align tightly with current surveying practice, and to teach more rapidly and efficiently. It adds broader and more valuable coverage of aerial, space and ground imaging, GIS, land surveying, and other key topics. An extensive set of appendices makes it a useful reference for students entering the workplace.

The second edition of MECHANICS OF MATERIALS by Pytel and Kiusalaas is a concise examination of the fundamentals of Mechanics of Materials. The book maintains the hallmark organization of the previous edition as well as the time-tested problem solving methodology, which incorporates outlines of procedures and numerous sample problems to help ease students through the transition from theory to problem analysis. Emphasis is placed on giving students the introduction to the field that they need along with the problem-solving skills that will help them in their subsequent studies. This is demonstrated in the text by the presentation of fundamental principles before the introduction of advanced/special topics.

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.

Behind every great American civil engineering accomplishment, there is a great American civil engineer. Throughout history civil engineers have made an enormous impact on the progress and development of this nation. While their engineering achievements are regularly recognized, the engineers themselves are rarely discussed. Engineering Legends provides a unique view into the history and progress of 32 great American civil engineers, from the 1700's to the present. It explores the personal lives and professional accomplishments of these outstanding engineers, providing an in-depth look at the people behind these achievements. The book also illustrates the diversity surrounding these engineers, such as their differing backgrounds, their reasons for becoming engineers, obstacles they faced, and their work in different disciplines of civil engineering. Practicing and aspiring engineers alike will be inspired to succeed by the stories of these American civil engineering legends.
