Overview

About the Product

Based on a real world roadway design project, ROADWAY DESIGN WITH INROADS V8I provides information on not only the use of InRoads™, but also AASHTO and State roadway design guidelines. Readers are able to take a design from inception to design modification, and to the development of a contract plan set. This comprehensive text provides information, references, guidelines, step-by-step instructions, and exercises for individuals of varying skill levels, and is designed for individual study, for the university environment including the senior transportation capstone course, and for in-house training for roadway and design agencies.

Features

  • Based on over 18 years of classroom instruction, the text is designed to emphasize learning concepts that will enhance student understanding and performance.

  • The text is based on a real world roadway design project that provides information, references, guidelines, instructions, and exercises for individuals of varying skill levels.

  • Intentional problems are introduced throughout the text in order to give students multiple opportunities to practice and apply difficult concepts.

  • Designed to address the needs of both professionals and students, the text follows a logical progression that combines modeling theory, software concepts, and practical tutorials.

Structural, Civil and Pipe Drafting for CAD Technicians  (ISBN-10: 1401896561 | ISBN-13: 9781401896560)

For nearly twenty years, David Goetsch has provided a one-of-a-kind information resource with his book, Structural Drafting. Now, for a broader audience, he has developed a new and complete introduction to structural drafting with related coverage of civil and piping drafting that has complementary software. Structural, Civil and Pipe Drafting for CAD Technicians is organized into seven sections. The first section of the book supplies readers with an overview of structural drafting, from the organizational structure of the typical department through product fabrication and shipping. Later sections invite readers to hone in on the specifics of structural steel, pre-cast concrete, poured-in-place concrete, and structural wood drafting. Section six includes chapters on pre-fab metal buildings, civil engineering drafting, and process piping to ensure that readers gain all of the expertise they need to become highly competent, professional drafters.
