Tunelling and Tunnel Mechanics: A Rational Approach to Tunnelling

The book covers not only practical aspects but also the underlying theoretical approaches. It also covers the fundamentals of rock mechanics. It addresses not only students but also professionals who are interested to understand the underlying principles and methods and possibly to further develop them. Emphasis is given to the mechanical approach rather than to hardly tractable empirical statements. The text is concise and as far as possible complete and comprises a large list of citations. Publications of the English and German speaking scientific communities have been taken into account.

Fluid Mechanics: Problems and Solutions

Fluid mechanicsis the study offluidsand theforceson them. (Fluids includeliquids,gases, andplasmas.) Fluid mechanics can be divided into fluid kinematics, the study of fluid motion, andfluid dynamics, the study of the effect of forces on fluid motion, which can further be divided intofluid statics, the study of fluids at rest, and fluid kinetics, the study of fluids in motion. It is a branch ofcontinuum mechanics, a subject which models matter without using the information that it is made out of atoms, that is, it models matter from a macroscopic viewpoint rather than from a microscopic viewpoint. Fluid mechanics, especially fluid dynamics, is an active field of research with many unsolved or partly solved problems. Fluid mechanics can be mathematically complex. Sometimes it can best be solved bynumerical methods, typically using computers. A modern discipline, calledcomputational fluid dynamics(CFD), is devoted to this approach to solving fluid mechanics problems. Also taking advantage of the highly visual nature of fluid flow isparticle image velocimetry, an experimental method for visualizing and analyzing fluid flow.

Estimating and Tendering for Construction Work, Third Edition

The job of the estimator is explained in detail at every key stage, from early cost studies, through the preparation of the estimate, to the creation of budgets for successful tenders. Each step is illustrated with examples and notes, and appropriate technical documentation. Over recent years there have been significant developments in construction management, notably new procurement methods, greater emphasis on innovation and partnering, a greater reliance on cost planning as a methodology, and new developments in both industry and governmental reports and guidance.
