Engineers

Computer Aided Design Guide for Architecture, Engineering and Construction

A History of Engineering and Structural Design

Ghassan Aouad, Angela Lee and Song Wu all at University of Salford, UK

Recent years have seen major changes in the approach to Computer Aided Design (CAD) in the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) sector. CAD is increasingly becoming a standard design tool, facilitating lower development costs and a reduced design cycle. Not only does it allow a designer to model designs in two and three dimensions but also to model other dimensions, such as time and cost into designs.

Computer Aided Design Guide for Architecture, Engineering and Construction provides an in-depth explanation of all the common CAD terms and tools used in the AEC sector. It describes each approach to CAD with detailed analysis and practical examples. Analysis is provided of the strength and weaknesses of each application for all members of the project team, followed by review questions and further tasks. Coverage includes: • 2D CAD

• nD modelling

• 3D CAD

• building Information Modelling,

• 4D CAD

• parametric design, virtual reality and other areas of future expansion.

With practical examples and step-by step guides, this book is essential reading for students of design and construction, from undergraduate level onwards.

Matthew Wells, Techniker, London, UK

This innovative new book presents the vast historical sweep of engineering innovation and technological change to describe and illustrate engineering design and what conditions, events, cultural climates and personalities have brought it to its present state. Matthew Wells covers topics based on an examination of paradigm shifts, the contribution of individuals, important structures and influential disasters to show approaches to the modern concept of structure. By demonstrating the historical context of engineering, Wells has created a guide to design like no other, inspirational for both students and practitioners working in the fields of architecture and engineering.

New Aspects of Quantity Surveying Practice

Traditional Construction for a Sustainable Future

Duncan Cartlidge, Construction Procurement Consultant, UK

Carole Ryan, formerly of Bournemouth University, UK

Reviews of the second edition: ’An essential guide for all surveying professionals’ – RICS Business ’A modern classic’ – QS News In the 1990s, many pundits said that Quantity Surveyors were going the way of the dodo, a prophecy which has proven to be far from accurate. In response, Duncan Cartlidge wrote the first edition of this book, to address the changing role of the QS in the twenty-first century.

As we enter the second decade of the twenty-first century, the pressure on the QS profession continue to change and evolve and so this third edition includes new chapters to help students and professionals deal with the new issues they face. Key areas for new coverage include: • the RICS New Rules of Measurement (NRM) • the increasing importance of sustainability in the built environment • new pressures for ethical standards in the QS profession. Alongside these new issues, the chapters addressing issues such as procurement, IT, global markets and adding value have been updated to reflect changes in practice since the second edition. With an emphasis on current practice, you will find this book an indispensible guide as you embark on your career in quantity surveying. Selected Contents: 1. The Story so Far 2. A New Approach to Measurement 3. Sustainability and Procurement 4. IT Update 5. Ethical Practice at Home and Abroad 6. Delivering Added Value 7. Emerging Services 8. Sustainability Assessment and Quantity Surveying Practice April 2011: 234 x 156: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-58042-7: £95.00 Pb: 978-0-415-58043-4: £29.99 For more information, visit: www.routledge.com/9780415580434

Since the spread of classical design and construction amongst the upper echolons of British society in the late seventeenth century, traditional construction methods have largely fallen by the wayside. Centuries later, as the construction industry faces up to its environmental responsibilities, this book explores its rich and ancient tradition to provide tried and trusted solutions to modern day construction problems.

The studies of traditional buildings included reveal the sustainability of features such as natural ventilation and breathing walls, and comparisons with modern construction methods show how they could prevent ’sick building syndrome’. The author argues that maintenance for long life, by contrast with the modern concept of life-cycle costing, is at the nub of sustainability and underlies the contribution traditional building construction can make to tackling climate change. Over 250 original photos, and over fifty bespoke diagrams illustrate the features, techniques, and characteristics of traditional construction that could make such a valuable contribution to the industry today. The inclusion of a close study of how these methods relate to British building regulations makes this book a practical guide for construction professionals, as well as an authoritative resource for students and policy-makers. Selected Contents: 1. The Natural Way of Life, the Birth of the Traditional House and its Demise 2. Traditional Building Materials, their Sustainability, and the Contrast with Modern Materials 3. Traditional Sustainable Building Construction- Ancient and Modern 4. Thermal Performance and the Breathing Wall 5. Climate, Site and Thermal Performance 6. The Role of the Building Regulations in Traditional Building Construction 7.

Structural Design in Building Conservation

Understanding Building Failures

Dimitris Theodossopoulos, University of Edinburgh, UK

James Douglas and Bill Ransom

No building is properly conserved if it is not structurally sound. Consequently architects, engineers, conservation officers need an adequate grounding in the technology as well as in the materials and the historical origins of the building.

This third edition of the classic textbook provides a solid introduction to the study of defects in buildings and, subsequently, to good practice, conservation and repair. With new material, this is an excellent practitioner and student reference book.

Structural Design in Building Conservation deals with the design of structural interventions in historic buildings and shows how the associated technical choices affect the planning and architectural outcomes in a conservation project. It brings together theory with current conservation technology, discussing its possibilities in architectural expression and is particularly directed to students of architectural conservation technology. It combines a technical manual (with details), a text for practising engineers, and guidance through case studies, with good examples of repairs, strengthening, additions, and interventions, and with advice on the specialist literature. It introduces the philosophy of structural interventions within the range of conservation theories and discusses current practice and the regulatory frameworks of various European countries. It then outlines the main types of strengthening repairs and interventions in terms of building types and the structural nature of the main elements to be strengthened (linear structures, frames, plates and shells). Significant case studies are presented of historic mills, stone block buildings, neoclassical houses, historic reinforced concrete structures, and vaulting types. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction 2. Structural Interventions in Historic Buildings 3. Structural Behaviour 4. Building Types and Their Failure 5. Structural Assessment 6. Strengthening and Repairs 7. Areas of Interventions 8. Case Studies October 2011: 234 x 156: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-47945-5: £95.00 Pb: 978-0-415-47946-2: £34.99 eBook: 978-0-203-88725-7

Organization Management in Construction Edited by Paul S. Chinowsky, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA and Anthony D. Songer, Boise State University, USA

Today’s construction environment is changing at an unprecedented pace and executives are facing a diverse set of issues – globalization, economics, workforce demographics, and technology. Moreover the traditional issues of competition and delivery are being challenged by new laws and new industry entrants; and the tasks of project and organization management are being overhauled. This all demands greater leadership from senior management. Construction executives typically reach senior level after many years mastering the art of project management, which has given them very little time or opportunity to learn the concepts and principles of organization leadership – unlike their counterparts in other industries who have been steeped in this.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the key issues that organization leaders must understand and address. It provides concise summaries by leading international authorities of the ten key strategic management issues, shows how they have emerged, and outlines their potential impact on the construction organization. Selected Contents: 1. Introduction and Overview 2. Leadership 3. Knowledge Management 4. Network and Culture 5. Strategic Innovation 6. Human Resource Development 7. Globalization 8. Strategic Issues in Entering Emerging Markets 9. Project Delivery and Financing 10. Strategic Safety Management 11. Corporate Social Responsibility 12.

Construction, architecture and engineering projects are complex undertakings, involving a temporary grouping of people and companies, with different agendas and experience, coming together to achieve a project goal. This book investigates the dynamics of the relationships between individuals involved in architecture, engineering and construction projects. It combines a structured theoretical framework, derived from social psychology and mainstream management theory, with case studies and research from the built environment sector. Focusing on how people interact, communicate and work together, it examines how best to manage the interdisciplinary relationships that form and reform during the project life cycle.

The book covers vital areas of project management, whose importance has recently come to be recognized, and will be valuable for students at both undergraduate and graduate level. Practitioners will also find it a useful insight into the social aspect of project management, with implications and applications that apply to all projects in the built environment sector.

A Guide to Energy Management in Buildings

Ale, Ben................................................ 10

Douglas Harris, Heriot-Watt University, UK Inefficient energy use in buildings is both increasingly expensive and unsustainable. Indeed, the reduction of the energy consumption of existing buildings is as least as important as the design of new low-energy buildings. Controlling energy use is one thing, but it is important to assess or estimate it, and to understand the range of interventions for reducing its use and the methods for assessing the cost effectiveness of these measures. This comprehensive guide clearly and concisely covers the various issues from a theoretical standpoint and provides practical, worked examples where appropriate, along with examples of how the calculations are carried out. Topics covered include:
