Synopsis: Covering civil engineering, from structural design, soil mechanics and sewage disposal to hydraulics and land surveys, this reference book also includes such areas as mining, electrical and mechanical engineering. In addition to new technical developments, entries reflect increasing environmental awareness, the expanding role of computers and current interest in the advanced techniques used in constructing the channel tunnel and the ancient civil engineering that built the great wall of China.
