# eBook: Civil Engineering Formulas Pocket Guide

Aside from the helpful tips shared on the Formulas that Work group forum, it is helpful to have a pocket guide handy for referencing formulas and equations.

## Civil Engineering Formulas Pocket Guide

Indispensable portable reference for all practicing civil engineers and students

Now you can get a single compilation of all essential civil engineering formulas and equations in one easy-to-use portable reference. More than three-quarters of the material in Tyler Hicks Civil Engineering Formulas Pocket Guide is in the form of formulas, tables, and graphs, presented in SI and USCS formats. Each chapter, offering collections of problems and calculations, gives you quick reference to a well-defined topic:

### Conversion Factors for Civil Engineering Practice

Beam Formulas
Column Formulas
Piles and Piling Formulas
Concrete Formulas
Timber Engineering Formulas
Surveying Formulas
Soil and Earthwork Formulas
Building and Structures Formulas
Bridge and Suspension-Cable Formulas
Highway and Road Formulas
Hydraulics and Waterworks Formulas

#### Introduction to Pocket Guide

This handy book presents more than 2000 needed formulas
for civil engineers to help them in the design office, in the
field, and on a variety of construction jobs, anywhere in the
world. These formulas are also useful to design drafters,
structural engineers, bridge engineers, foundation builders,
field engineers, professional-engineer license examination
candidates, concrete specialists, timber-structure builders,
and students in a variety of civil engineering pursuits.
The book presents formulas needed in 12 different spe-
cialized branches of civil engineering—beams and girders,
columns, piles and piling, concrete structures, timber engi-
neering, surveying, soils and earthwork, building struc-
tures, bridges, suspension cables, highways and roads, and
hydraulics and open-channel flow. Key formulas are pre-
sented for each of these topics. Each formula is explained
so the engineer, drafter, or designer knows how, where, and
when to use the formula in professional work. Formula
units are given in both the United States Customary System
(USCS) and System International (SI). Hence, the text is
usable throughout the world. To assist the civil engineer
using this material in worldwide engineering practice, a com-
prehensive tabulation of conversion factors is presented in
Chapter 1.
