Project Finance for Construction (Paperback): Carl Bridge Project Finance for Construction (Paperback)
Carl Bridge
R854 Discovery Miles 8 540 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The world of construction is intrinsically linked with that of finance, from the procurement and tendering stage of projects right through to valuation of buildings. In addition to this, things like administrations, liquidations, mergers, take-overs, buy-outs and floatations affect construction firms as they do all other companies. This book is a rare explanation of common construction management activities from a financial point of view. While the practical side of the industry is illustrated here with case studies, the authors also take the time to build up an understanding of balance sheets and P&L accounts before explaining how common tasks like estimating or valuation work from this perspective. Readers of this book will not only learn how to carry out the tasks of a construction cost manager, quantity surveyor or estimator, they will also understand the financial logic behind them, and the motivations that drive senior management. This is an essential book for students of quantity surveying or construction management, and all ambitious practitioners.

Bionic Optimization in Structural Design - Stochastically Based Methods to Improve the Performance of Parts and Assemblies... Bionic Optimization in Structural Design - Stochastically Based Methods to Improve the Performance of Parts and Assemblies (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2016)
Rolf Steinbuch, Simon Gekeler
R2,085 R1,888 Discovery Miles 18 880 Save R197 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The book provides suggestions on how to start using bionic optimization methods, including pseudo-code examples of each of the important approaches and outlines of how to improve them. The most efficient methods for accelerating the studies are discussed. These include the selection of size and generations of a study's parameters, modification of these driving parameters, switching to gradient methods when approaching local maxima, and the use of parallel working hardware. Bionic Optimization means finding the best solution to a problem using methods found in nature. As Evolutionary Strategies and Particle Swarm Optimization seem to be the most important methods for structural optimization, we primarily focus on them. Other methods such as neural nets or ant colonies are more suited to control or process studies, so their basic ideas are outlined in order to motivate readers to start using them. A set of sample applications shows how Bionic Optimization works in practice. From academic studies on simple frames made of rods to earthquake-resistant buildings, readers follow the lessons learned, difficulties encountered and effective strategies for overcoming them. For the problem of tuned mass dampers, which play an important role in dynamic control, changing the goal and restrictions paves the way for Multi-Objective-Optimization. As most structural designers today use commercial software such as FE-Codes or CAE systems with integrated simulation modules, ways of integrating Bionic Optimization into these software packages are outlined and examples of typical systems and typical optimization approaches are presented. The closing section focuses on an overview and outlook on reliable and robust as well as on Multi-Objective-Optimization, including discussions of current and upcoming research topics in the field concerning a unified theory for handling stochastic design processes.

R416 R331 Discovery Miles 3 310 Save R85 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Named after the 40th governor of Louisiana, the Huey P. Long Bridge, just outside of New Orleans in Jefferson Parish, is the longest railroad bridge in the United States. For 15 years after it opened in 1935, it was the longest railroad bridge in the world. Initially conceived in 1892, the "Huey P." was the first bridge to span the deep-draft navigation channel of the lower Mississippi River, opening the path for a southern transcontinental railroad. The highway and pedestrian portions of the bridge provided additional transport, which previously had only been available by ferry. New Orleans and its surrounding regions grew in population and economic importance as the publicly owned bridge connected the Port of New Orleans to the rest of the United States through six Class I railroads. The Huey P. continues to function in its original, now undersized, capacity. In April 2006, the state began a widening of the bridge to double its automobile lanes from 18 feet to 43 feet. In September 2012, the American Society of Civil Engineers dedicated the Huey P. Long Bridge as a Historic Civil Engineering Landmark.

The Great Bridge - The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge (Hardcover, Anniversary ed): David McCullough The Great Bridge - The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge (Hardcover, Anniversary ed)
David McCullough
R699 R549 Discovery Miles 5 490 Save R150 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The dramatic and enthralling story of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, the world's longest suspension bridge at the time, a tale of greed, corruption, and obstruction but also of optimism, heroism, and determination, told by master historian David McCullough.
This monumental book is the enthralling story of one of the greatest events in our nation's history, during the Age of Optimism--a period when Americans were convinced in their hearts that all things were possible.
In the years around 1870, when the project was first undertaken, the concept of building an unprecedented bridge to span the East River between the great cities of Manhattan and Brooklyn required a vision and determination comparable to that which went into the building of the great cathedrals. Throughout the fourteen years of its construction, the odds against the successful completion of the bridge seemed staggering. Bodies were crushed and broken, lives lost, political empires fell, and surges of public emotion constantly threatened the project. But this is not merely the saga of an engineering miracle; it is a sweeping narrative of the social climate of the time and of the heroes and rascals who had a hand in either constructing or exploiting the surpassing enterprise.

R2,429 R1,708 Discovery Miles 17 080 Save R721 (30%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

This short monograph and timely practitioner guide offers a comprehensive theoretical background and a design procedure for hoop--wrapped, composite gas cylinders. It gives a fundamental insight into the effects of process variables and how they interact, allowing a predictive approach to design and enabling test results to be assessed in a more meaningful way. The theory described is also generally applicable to all kinds of internally pressurized cylindrical pressure vessels and pipes where hoop reinforcement is an integral part of the design. Designing high--pressure gas cylinders using composites is a relatively new and rapidly developing technology, exploiting recent advances in high--strength lightweight synthetic fibres. Traditionally, only metals have been used, but clearly weight is a major consideration in the efficiency of gas cylinders. Lightweight composite cylinders offer considerable advantages over heavier all--metal alternatives, provided concerns over safety can be allayed. Manufacture of composite gas cylinders has relied primarily on costly 'design by testing' to ensure that stringent safety standards are met. With new European and International Standards backed by recently introduced legislation Hoop--wrapped Composite Internally Pressurized Cylinders -- Development and Application of a Design Theory provides the industry with a much--needed, reliable, and transparent methodology for the design of hoop--wrapped, composite gas cylinders.

Roma Agrawal 1
R356 R242 Discovery Miles 2 420 Save R114 (32%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Imagine you woke up one morning to find everything created by engineers had disappeared. What would you see?

No cars, no houses; no phones, bridges or roads. No tunnels under tidal rivers, no soaring skyscrapers. The impact that engineering has had on the human experience is undeniable, but it is also often invisible.

In BUILT, structural engineer Roma Agrawal takes a unique look at how construction has evolved from the mud huts of our ancestors to skyscrapers of steel that reach hundreds of metres into the sky. She unearths how engineers have tunnelled through kilometres of solid mountains; how they've bridged across the widest and deepest of rivers, and tamed Nature's precious - and elusive - water resources. She tells vivid tales of the visionaries who created the groundbreaking materials in the Pantheon's record-holding concrete dome and the frame of the record-breaking Eiffel Tower. Through the lens of an engineer, Roma examines tragedies like the collapse of the Quebec Bridge, highlighting the precarious task of ensuring people's safety they hold at every step.

With colourful stories of her life-long fascination with buildings - and her own hand-drawn illustrations - Roma reveals the extraordinary secret lives of structures.
