200 Questions and Answers on Practical Civil Engineering Works

Posted by: Skylar In: general

The Institution of Civil Engineers has provided the book entitled “200 Questions and Answers on Practical Civil Engineering Works” by Vincent Chu free for download on their website.  The book includes 12 sections focusing on the different types of civil engineering works, including: bridge works, drainage works, earthworks, roadworks, pumping stations, water retaining structures and more.  The book is almost like an F.A.Q. for practical civil engineering, and is a welcome resource for engineers who may not have the vast spread of knowledge that Vincent Chu seems to have.

Keep in mind that the book is written by a civil engineer from Hong Kong, so you will find the odd answer that is less applicable to North American engineering (not to mention the odd grammatical error).  However, the remainder of the technical content is quite applicable to civil engineers worldwide.

Dear Technical Buddy,
I’m Nazmul Huda student studying on civil engineering in AUST(Ahsanullah University of Science & Technology,Bangladesh).After studying the theoretical aspects from books, sometimes i feel that, i’ll must have the knowledges about the problems that may arise during the use of those knowledges i’ve acquired and answers how to solve them is very much important.
From this point of view, this free book fills my some of the important interests!!So i would like to thank a lot to give the allow to study the book freely.
But i’ve a request that,you will have to introduce more part which will be related to all others civil engineering aspects freely & it will be matter of great pleasure to all!!This should be from the point of view of all country.Because we know that,the considering conditions in case of cilvil engineering works are differ by place to place & surrounding climatic behaviour.

Again thanks a lot to give me the chance to study about emperical things.
Sincerely yours-
Md.Nazmul Huda
