Civil Engineer s Reference Book Book Review:

Civil Engineer's Reference Book, Fourth Edition provides civil engineers with reports on design and construction practices in the UK and overseas. It gives a concise presentation of theory and practice in the many branches of a civil engineer's profession and it enables them to study a subject in greater depth. The book discusses some improvements in earlier practices, for example in surveying, geotechnics, water management, project management, underwater working, and the control and use of materials. Other changes covered are from the evolving needs of clients for almost all forms of construction, maintenance and repair. Another major change is the introduction of new national and Euro-codes based on limit state design, covering most aspects of structural engineering. The fourth edition incorporates these advances and, at the same time, gives greater prominence to the special problems relating to work overseas, with differing client requirements and climatic conditions. Chapters 1 to 10 provide engineers, at all levels of development, with 'lecture notes' on the basic theories of civil engineering. Chapters 11 to 44 cover the practice of design and construction in many of the fields of civil engineering. Civil engineers, architects, lawyers, mechanical engineers, insurers, clients, and students of civil engineering will find benefit in the use of this text.

Ship Construction and Welding Book Review:

This book addresses various aspects of ship construction, from ship types and construction materials, to welding technologies and accuracy control. The contents of the book are logically organized and divided into twenty-one chapters. The book covers structural arrangement with longitudinal and transverse framing systems based on the service load, and explains basic structural elements like hatch side girders, hatch end beams, stringers, etc. along with structural subassemblies like floors, bulkheads, inner bottom, decks and shells. It presents in detail double bottom construction, wing tanks & duct keels, fore & aft end structures, etc., together with necessary illustrations. The midship sections of various ship types are introduced, together with structural continuity and alignment in ship structures. With regard to construction materials, the book discusses steel, aluminum alloys and fiber reinforced composites. Various methods of steel material preparation are discussed, and plate cutting and forming of plates and sections are explained. The concept of line heating for plate bending is introduced.Welding power source characteristics, metal transfer mechanisms, welding parameters and their effects on the fusion zone, weld deposit, and weld bead profile are discussed in detail. Various fusion welding methods, MMAW, GMAW, SAW, Electroslag welding and Electrogas welding and single side welding are explained in detail. Friction stir welding as one of the key methods of solid state welding as applied to aluminum alloys is also addressed. The mechanisms of residual stress formation and distortion are explained in connection with stiffened panel fabrication, with an emphasis on weld induced buckling of thin panels. Further, the basic principles of distortion prevention, in-process distortion control and mitigation techniques like heat sinking, thermo-mechanical tensioning etc. are dealt with in detail. In its final section, the book describes in detail various types of weld defects that are likely to occur, together with their causes and remedial measures. The nondestructive testing methods that are most relevant to ship construction are explained. Lastly, a chapter on accuracy control based on statistical principles is included, addressing the need for a suitable mechanism to gauge the ranges of variations so that one can quantitatively target the end product accuracy.

Information Engineering for Port and Marine Environments provides the technology of tidal level prediction, the technology of oil spill early-warning, and the research for the theory of storm sedimentation, the construction for monitor ability, the early-warning service for numerical simulation and operational, which involves many aspects such as theoretical research, system establishment, and application of information technology, et al. Because of the certain prospective and advancement of multiple work, it will play a positive role in promoting the related technology of the field. There are several of important offshore ports in China, such as Tianjin port, Yangshan Port, Ningbo-Zhoushan port, Huanghua port et al., most of them are located in the coast of muddy and muddy silty, and the depth of water is shallow, the sediment deposition is serious, the large ship is operated by tide. In order to sufficiently keep the rapid and stable economic growth in bay, estuary and delta, guarantee the security of port, channel, maritime, oceanic engineering and resource development of oil and gas, and better escort for the social economy activities, it is essential to provide the information service of sediment and ocean hydrometeorology with width coverage, and forecasting and warning information. It is all the latest research results in the book, which involves many fields such as physical oceanography, meteorology, biology, chemistry, geology, environment, transportation and law and so on. The development of information assurance and prediction system for port shipping and ocean environment is a huge and arduous project. It is too hasty to finish the book, due to the limited knowledge of the author, the careless is unavoidable, cordially invites the readers to point out. Features: An entire system to forecast the port shipping and ocean environment information is proposed, including what is the port shipping and ocean environment information. The concept of port shipping and ocean environment data integration is presented, and the essential modules are built for the ocean dynamics model. The high performance port shipping and ocean environment data processing system is constructed, and the model dataset and geographic information is obtained to build the basic database. The application of information assurance technology for port shipping and ocean environment is conducted at Tianjin port and Yangshan Port. This book is meant for senior undergraduates and postgraduate students in the fields of geoinformatics, Port engineering and Marine engineering. Engineers and technicians in the related fields can also use it for reference.

Port and Harbour Engineering Book Review:

During the 19th century, the engineering of ports and harbours became a large and specialised branch of the profession. This development began in ports in physically difficult locations and may be particularly identified with the growth of the Port of Liverpool. Stimulated by the arrival of ever-larger steamships and the heavy investment in port facilities that they demanded, it spread around much of the world. The opening papers give examples of what could be achieved in antiquity; the following ones set out the advances in design and technology from 1700 to the start of this century - and note some of the failures and recurrent problems. They also illustrate the critical importance of political and economic factors in determining what the engineers achieved.

GMDSS for Navigators Book Review:

The Global Maritime distress and Safety System (GMDSS) is becoming the all-embracing term for communication and data transfer between ship and shore, and ship and ship. It's a highly automated system of terrestrial satellite communications technology whose primary role is to maintain safety of life at sea. Within the next five years all vessels over 300 tonnes will be required to carry GMDSS equipment. The seafaring nations of the world have together established the rules and regulations for good working practices within the system, and every serving and future navigating officer will be required to hold the GMDSS General Operator's Certificate. GMDSS for Navigators brings together in one publication the knowledge required by anyone who wants to become a qualified and competent operator of GMDSS communications equipment. It should prove to be the accepted universal reference for GMDSS training.
