It was another excellent year for civil engineers who like to read.
Here is a run through the top books from ASCE in 2022.
Surveying and Geomatics Engineering
Manual of Practice 152 is a comprehensive yet general overview to help support education and inform practicing engineers on the important role of the surveying engineer.
Site-Specific Ground Motions for Seismic Design of Buildings and Other Structures
This manual provides a step-by-step approach to properly conduct site-specific ground motion hazard analysis and site response analysis. It will appeal to geotechnical and structural engineers who need ground motion parameters for liquefaction analyses and seismic design of structures.
Objective Resilience manual of practices
Sponsored by the Objective Resilience Committee of the Engineering Mechanics Institute of ASCE, this is a series of four MOPs to help engineers find a balance between subjectivity and objectivity. Those who buy more than two can get 10% off using the promo code “OBJRES4.”
Geotechnical Testing, Observation, and Documentation
An indispensable reference guide for soil technicians, inspectors, and geotechnical engineers, the new third edition is designed for use during the investigation, grading, and construction phases of geotechnical projects.
The Engineer’s Project Delivery Method Primer
This primer brings clarity to the definitions and sometimes complex and conflicting terminology associated with project delivery methods by providing a comprehensive explanation of each method.
