Exceptionally practical, itfeatures several chapters that present new techniques and methodologies in thecontext of real-life problem situations. Broad andcomprehensive in coverage and reader-friendly in approach, this bookfocuses on the most modern skills available for the design, operation andevaluation of civil and environmental engineering systems, optimization/systemsmodeling and engineering economics. Describes how and why linear programmingworks. Also, provides a solid treatment of multiple objective programming.Practicing Civil and Environmental Engineers.
A textbook for a junior or senior course on systems analysis or systems analysis and economics as applied to civil engineering, but advanced material included make it suitable as well for a first-year graduate course introducing civil systems. Focuses on linear programming and other forms of optimization, and engineering economics. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
