9780470411919: Introduction to Infrastructure: An Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering

Introduction to Infrastructure: An Introduction to Civil and Environmental Engineering  breaks new ground in preparing civil and environmental engineers to meet the challenges of the 21st  century.  The authors use the infrastructure that is all around us to introduce students to civil and environmental engineering, demonstrating how all the parts of civil and environmental engineering are interrelated to help students see the "big picture" in the first or second year of the curriculum.

Students learn not only the  what  of the infrastructure, but also the  how  and the  why  of the infrastructure. Readers learn the infrastructure is a system of interrelated physical components, and how those components affect, and are affected by, society, politics, economics, and the environment. Studying infrastructure allows educators and students to develop a valuable link between fundamental knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge, so students may translate their knowledge to new contexts.

The authors' implementation of modern learning pedagogy (learning objectives, concrete examples and cases, and hundreds of photos and illustrations), and chapters that map well to the ABET accreditation requirements AND the ASCE Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge 2nd  edition (with recommendations for using this text in a 1, 2, or 3 hour course) make this text a key part of any civil and/or environmental engineering curriculum.

Book Description John Wiley and Sons Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Penn and Parker s Introduction to Infrastructure is comprehensive, balanced coverage of different aspects of civil engineering that shows interconnectedness of the different civil engineering disciplines. This 1st Edition covers a broad coverage of engineering disciplines, and introduction to ethics. Traditional technical topics (e.g. construction, environmental/water resources, geotechnical, etc.) are interwoven through the text and rather than treating these subdisciplines on a chapter-by-chapter basis, case studies will be used to emphasize their interconnectedness. The text also features practical civil and environmental engineering applications, with level of technical rigor (e.g. rudimentary); a conversational tone, prompting the reader; problem-based; and Website accompanying text such as current infrastructure related news; and ordinances (parking, stormwater, etc.) from communities of various sizes and geographic locations to be used as the basis for textbook exercises.
