The Masonry Institute of America believes that the best way to extend and improve the use of masonry is through education and dissemination of information. Following a long tradition of such ideals, the 1997 Masonry Codes and Specifications is a ready reference that furnishes, in one document, the various code requirements for masonry from the Uniform Building Code and Standards, the California State Building Code, and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standards that govern the specification of quality and testing of materials. The book includes Guide Specifications for masonry construction set forth in the CSI format with notes to the specifier.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the third edition of this popular textbook continues to provide a comprehensive coverage of the main construction materials for undergraduate students of civil engineering and construction related courses. It creates an understanding of materials and how they perform through a knowledge of their chemical and physical structure, leading to an ability to judge their behaviour in service and construction. Materials covered include; metals and alloys, concrete, bituminous materials, brickwork and blockwork, polymers and fibre composites. Each material is discussed in terms of: structure; strength and failure; durability; deformation; practice and processing. The sections on concrete, polymers and fibre composites have been significantly revised. Descriptions of important properties are related back to the structure and forward to basic practical considerations. With its wealth of illustrations and reader-friendly style and layout Construction Materials.

Make compliance with the Uniform Building Code a cinch with this complete set of project-oriented checklists. They decode the often arcane and unwieldly requirements of the UBC and reduce verification of code compliance to the simple act of running through a checklist. No matter what stage your project is in or what type of structure you're working on, this resource provides the needed time-saving, code-verifying tool. Divided into four major sections, this book/CD package gives you checklists for the design stage, architectural documentation, structural documentation, and specifications. Provided in both print and computer-ready format, these checklists simplify record-keeping as well as compliance. This valuable tool reduces the need for time-wasting design changes, expensive construction change orders, and worseÑclaims that can result from failure to design and build according to code. Concise and easy to read and to use, the Uniform Building Code Manual is your key to quick and complete verification.

This volume covers more than 200 years of recording specific language in German explanatory dictionaries. For the first time, the comparative analysis of six dictionaries from the 18th to the 20th century provides reliable data which subject areas were covered lexicographically and which special methods of marking were used. Nautical language serves as an example to show constancy and changes in adding new specific vocabularies in the above mentioned time period. A broad overview of specific language research since the 19th century rounds off the book.

Herodot (geb. um 484 v. Chr., gest. um 425) wird mit Recht der Vater der Geschichtsschreibung genannt. Er verfasste eine Urgeschichte der alten Kulturen: des Vorderen Orients, Ägyptens und Griechenlands. Die welthistorische Auseinandersetzung zwischen Persern und Griechen, die Beschreibung der Schlachten von Marathon, den Thermopylen, Salamis und Platää sind von außerordentlicher Lebendigkeit. Der Weitgereiste ist zugleich aber auch der meisterhafte Erzähler von Geschichten, die in die Weltliteratur eingegangen sind, wie z. B. das Schicksal des Krösus, Gyges und sein Ring oder der Ring des Polykrates. Herodot gehört zu den Klassikern der griechischen Literatur, zu ihren ernstesten - und schwierigsten - Autoren, trotz oder gerade wegen seiner scheinbaren Leichtigkeit. Herodots Werk birgt in sich verhaltene Größe, Leiden und Leidenschaft, Welterfahrung und tiefe Klugheit.

Continuing the tradition of the best-selling Handbook of Structural Engineering, this second edition is a comprehensive reference to the broad spectrum of structural engineering, encapsulating the theoretical, practical, and computational aspects of the field. The authors address a myriad of topics, covering both traditional and innovative approaches to analysis, design, and rehabilitation. The second edition has been expanded and reorganized to be more informative and cohesive. It also follows the developments that have emerged in the field since the previous edition, such as advanced analysis for structural design, performance-based design of earthquake-resistant structures, lifecycle evaluation and condition assessment of existing structures, the use of high-performance materials for construction, and design for safety. Additionally, the book includes numerous tables, charts, and equations, as well as extensive references, reading lists, and websites for further study or more in-depth information. Emphasizing practical applications and easy implementation, this text reflects the increasingly global nature of engineering, compiling the efforts of an international panel of experts from industry and academia. This is a necessity for anyone studying or practicing in the field of structural engineering. New to this edition Fundamental theories of structural dynamics Advanced analysis Wind and earthquake-resistant design Design of prestressed concrete, masonry, timber, and glass structures Properties, behavior, and use of high-performance steel, concrete, and fiber-reinforced polymers Semirigid frame structures Structural bracing Structural design for fire safety
