3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad July 18, 2004
The book gives large ammount of formulas to work with. However, users that are working with SI units must be aware that not all formulas are accurate. It is advisable to crossreference with other literature.

4.0 out of 5 stars Includes Basics as Well as Relatively Arcane Topics March 3, 2009
As with virtually every engineering handbook, this work includes familiar topics such as beam and column formulas, moments of inertia, etc. It has a section on timber engineering, which includes topics such as allowable stresses and adjustment factors, wood fasteners, etc.

The main emphasis in this handbook appears to be building-construction related. Information is presented on such topics as shear in buildings, stresses in thin shells, ponding of rainwater in roofs, water pressure, stability of slopes, vibration control in blasting, and much more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little book March 18, 2013
This book is a handy little referemnce to review your civil engineering degree. It is comphrensive. You do need to have been exposed to the formulas before however, or the book would make little sense. My only criticism is that the print is a bit small. Time for glasses I guess.
