Practical Manual of Land Development
Civil engineers and other professionals involved in site design and preparation for land development projects will find a wealth of technical information, formulas, and data in this edition of this well-known sourcebook. Included are detailed accounts of the process of land development, the factors involved in site analysis, and the methods of estimating costs. Also discussed is the role of earthwork in construction, as well as considerations of roadways, sanitary sewers, storm drainage, and water supply. The Second Edition now integrates computer applications throughout as the standard tool for solving the engineering problems of site design, highway design, and earthwork. The book also covers various advanced technologies, including the Global Positioning Systems (GPS), Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and Computer-Aided Design (CAD).
