Construction Calculations Manual 1st Edition by Sidney M Levy pdf
Construction Calculations could be a manual that has end users with a comprehensive guide for several of the formulas, mathematical vectors and conversion factors that are commonly encountered during the planning and construction stages of a construction project. It offers readers detailed calculations, applications and examples needed in site work, cost estimation, piping and pipefitting, and project management.
The book also is a refresher for a few of the formulas and ideas of geometry and trigonometry. The book is split into sections that present the common components of construction. the primary section of the books starts with a refresher discussion of unit and systems measurement; its origin and evolution; the standards of length, mass and capacity; terminology and tables; and notes of metric, U.S, and British units of measurements.
the subsequent concepts are presented and discussed throughout the book: Conversion tables and formulas, including the Metric Conversion Law and conversion factors for builders and design professionals Calculations and formulas of geometry, trigonometry and physics in construction Rudiments of excavation, classification, use of fabric, measurement and payment Soil classification and morphology, including its physicochemical properties Formulas and calculations needed for soil tests and evaluations and for the planning of retaining structures Calculations referring to concrete and masonry Calculations of the size/weight of steel and other metals Mechanical properties of wood and processing of wood products Calculations regarding sound and thermal transmission Interior finishes, plumbing and HVAC calculations Electrical formulas and calculations Construction managers and engineers, architects, contractors, and beginners in engineering, architecture, and construction will find this practical guide useful for managing all aspects of construction.
