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.

Format: Paperback
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.

Format: Hardcover
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.

Is not bad for use it as a reference, but only a few chapters like structural analysis and concrete are considerable usefull for me. If your looking for a reference for civil engineering may be this is the book; for other things like a review I did not considered useful.

To me this book is a great reference, as a young and low expirienced engineer I think the book has the basic formulas in most of the ingineering fields from highways to waste water treatment plant .
