The Wiley Dictionary of Civil Engineering and Construction provides comprehensive coverage of a broad range of technical disciplines. The definitions are designed to be of use to professionals in architecture, engineering, surveying, building, construction, forestry, mining, and public works. Entries include terms, concepts, names, abbreviations, tools, and techniques common to these disciplines, and virtually all terms and their functions were supplied by working professionals and experts in each field.

  • More than 30,000 definitions and descriptions, including many that are not covered in other dictionaries
  • Written with the support and assistance of nearly 100 manufacturers, trade associations, government agencies, and specialists
  • All terms arranged alphabetically; many grouped according to logical common topics; thoroughly cross-referenced
  • All weights, volumes, and spatial dimensions presented in both metric and nonmetric values (conversion factors included)

The Wiley Dictionary of Civil Engineering and Construction is an indispensable resource for civil engineers, contractors and subcontractors, architects, construction administrators, consultants, and students.

Review:

The lingo of civil engineering and construction is a language unto itself, and L.F. Webster does a fine job of translating it for the lay person and defining the terms accurately for those who need to know them: professionals working in surveying, construction, forestry, mining, and public works. The 666 pages and more than 30,000 definitions of terms, concepts, names, abbreviations, tools, and techniques makes Wiley an indispensable reference for contractors, civil engineers, architects, consultants, and students.

From the Publisher:

With over 30,000 terms this book provides comprehensive coverage of a broad range of technical disciplines. The definitions are designed to be of use to professionals in architecture, engineering, surveying, building, construction, forestry, mining, and public works. Entries include terms, concepts, names, abbreviations, tools, and techniques common to these disciplines, and virtually all terms and their functions were supplied by working professionals and experts in each field.
