Samenvatting

This newly updated book offers a comprehensive introduction to the scope and nature of engineering work, taking a rigorous but common sense approach to the solution of engineering problems. The text follows the planning, modelling and design phases of engineering projects through to implementation or construction, explaining the conceptual framework for undertaking projects, and then providing a range of techniques and tools for solutions. It focuses on engineering design and problem solving, but also involves economic, environmental, social and ethical considerations. This third edition expands significantly on the economic evaluation of projects and also includes a new section on intractable problems and systems, involving a discussion of wicked problems and soft systems methodology as well as the approaches to software development. Further developments include an array of additional interest boxes, worked examples, problems and up-to date references. Case studies and real-world examples are used to illustrate the role of the engineer and especially the methods employed in engineering practice. The examples are drawn particularly from the fields of civil and environmental engineering, but the approaches and techniques are more widely applicable to other branches of engineering. The book is aimed at first-year engineering students, but contains material to suit more advanced undergraduates. It also functions as a professional handbook, covering some of the fundamentals of engineering planning and design in detail.

Recensie(s)

I know of no other textbook that balances as well as this one all these basic technical and non-technical social, political, legal and institutional aspects affecting what we engineers do and how we perform our work... The range and depth of material contained in this book will serve engineering students at all levels of their education. -- D. P. Loucks, Cornell University, USA Based on my experience, this is a winning formula ensuring effective learning and efficient absorption of the latest concepts in the planning and design of engineering systems...a must read for undergraduate students. -- Zoran Kapelan, University of Exeter, UK The Third Edition of their captivating and timely book on Engineering Planning and Design... covers not only the hard engineering aspects of engineering but also the closely connected softer topics which directly take into account the social, economic and environmental aspects of engineering projectsaEURO| the rich range of material is presented in such an encompassing and intuitive fashion. -- Keith W. Hipel, Professor of Systems Design Engineering, University of Waterloo
