Open Textbooks--Civil Engineering
Advanced Structural Analysis
This book presents the various aspects of modern structural analysis, ranging from elementary continuum mechanics theory to advanced analysis using open-source software. It is geared towards practical engineering problems and attempts to cover all essential analysis considerations and techniques present in the daily work of the experienced professional.
Discrete Wavelet Transforms - A Compendium of New Approaches and Recent Applications
This book presents a succinct compendium of some of the more recent variants of DWTs and their use to come up with solutions to an array of problems transcending the traditional application areas of image/video processing and security to the relatively newer areas of medicine, artificial intelligence, power systems and telecommunications.
Fundamentals of Transportation
This book is aimed at undergraduate civil engineering students, though the material may provide a useful review for practitioners and graduate students in transportation. Typically, this would be for an Introduction to Transportation course, which might be taken by most students in their sophomore or junior year.
Methods and Techniques in Urban Engineering
The objective of the book was to present works related to urban automation, geographic information systems (GIS), analysis, monitoring and management of urban noise, floods and transports, information technology applied to the cities, tools for urban simulation, social monitoring and control of urban policies, sustainability, etc., demonstrating methods and techniques applied in Urban Engineering.
Transportation Economics is aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate civil engineering, planning, business, and economics students, though the material may provide a useful review for practitioners. While incorporating theory, there is a very applied bent to the course, as all the ideas covered are intended to help inform the real decisions that are made (or should be made) in practice.
