Over the past two decades, the use of  nite element method as a design tool has grown rapidly. Easy to use commercial software, such as ANSYS, have become common tools in the hands of students as well as practicing engineers. The objective of this book is to demonstrate the use of one of the most commonly used Finite Element Analysis software, ANSYS, for linear static, dynamic, and thermal analysis through a series of tutorials and examples.

A. Samer Ezeldin and Ahmed M. Alhady

Coordination and management are essential functions in the building procedure. Recent research has demonstrated that poor or inadequate coordination is the best that is accomplished on construction sites. Nevertheless, not many writers of construction project management have examined this essential subject. Between project goals and the reality on the ground exist a huge number of conditions that can affect the progress of a project and that is the reason a dynamic ramification amid the development time frame is significant.

Naiwei Lu and Mohammad Noori

With the development in global economic and transportation engineering, the traffic loads on brides have been growing steadily, which become potential safety hazards for existing bridges. In particular, long-span suspension bridges support heavy traffic volumes and simultaneous truck loads on the bridge deck, and thus the safety and serviceability of the bridge deserves investigation. In this book, a multiscale reliability method is presented for the safety assessment of long-span bridges.

The Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge published by the Project Management Institute provides a roadmap of 47 processes designed to support project managers in all phases of project management. The sheer number of processes and their allocation across process groups and knowledge areas may leave project managers in a quandary about where to start and how to apply the many components of project management processes.
