This book guides readers in planning, estimating, and directing construction equipment operations toward achieving the best possible result. Every effort is made to present such advanced management techniques as quantitative management methods, queuing theory, and system simulation in a way that can be easily understood and used by those with little background in higher mathematics or operations research. Coverage features new chapters on compressed air and water systems, lifting equipment, and the production of aggregate, concrete, and asphalt mixes as well as expanded discussions of more traditional topics, including compaction equipment and techniques, construction safety and environmental health, loaders, pavement repair and rehabilitation, quantitative management methods, the rent-lease-buy decision, rock excavation production and cost, roller compacted concrete, the simulation of construction equipment operations, soil stabilization, and trenchers and trenchless technology. For construction and construction equipment managers and engineers.
