The clock is ticking. The days are passing. But fear not – ASCE is here to help with your last-minute gift needs.
Another busy year of titles and releases from ASCE Publications means there are plenty of options for the civil engineers on your list.
Here’s a look at some of the hottest new ASCE books trending in 2018:
Guidelines for Failure Investigation
The second edition of Guidelines for Failure Investigation outlines five fundamental steps in a failure investigation. It will help forensic engineers tailor their investigations to their particular failure scenarios.
Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment
Whole Building Life Cycle Assessment: Reference Building Structure and Strategies guides project teams to define and model the structural system within a reference building design, as required by green building standards and rating systems.
Resilience Engineering for Urban Tunnels
Resilience Engineering for Urban Tunnels addresses tunnels as a part of the complex urban infrastructure system that includes transportation systems, such as metro transit networks, and provides a basis for the development of a dynamic risk control and resilient design approach to urban tunnels.
With risk profiles changing and projections uncertain, Climate-Resilient Infrastructure: Adaptive Design and Risk Management, Manual of Practice 140, provides a new design philosophy to meet the challenge, offering guidance for developing and enhancing infrastructure analysis and design.
ASCE 68-18 Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement
Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement provides design, construction, and maintenance guidance, letting designers achieve stormwater management goals, and at the same time produce a structurally adequate, affordable pavement section that accommodates anticipated vehicular load.
Transforming Engineering Education
Transforming Engineering Education: Innovative Computer-Mediated Learning Technologies brings together 10 new approaches to research in the use of computer-mediated civil engineering education. The approaches offer examples of far-reaching improvements in learning outcomes and how they align with the curriculum.
Wind-Borne Debris Hazards
Wind-Borne Debris Hazards provides a concise summary of the current state of knowledge on all aspects of wind-borne debris damage.
Concrete Foundations for Turbine Generators
Manual of Practice 136 delivers state-of-the-practice guidance on turbine-generator foundations, targeted to structural design engineers, operating company personnel who establish structural design criteria and construction standards, and local building officials.
Monitoring Dam Performance
Monitoring Dam Performance: Instrumentation and Measurements presents the fundamentals and current state of practice of instrumented measurements for monitoring dam performance.
Significant Changes to the Minimum Design Load Provisions of ASCE 7-16
ASCE 7-16’s updated load provisions are captured in a handy, more accessible volume for structural engineers, architects, contractors, building officials and inspectors, and allied professionals.
