Engineering, a word derived from the combination of the Latin words ingenium and ingeniare and meaning "to design something clever", is an economical way to design and build structures, machines, devices, hardware and software systems, materials and related processes that make people's lives easier, improve their quality of life and safety. It is the art, discipline and profession of synthesizing social and environmental knowledge with mathematical and scientific methods and putting them into practice.
Civil engineering design and applications, which also means civilization engineering, are as old as human history. In the past, structures were built for shelter, nutrition, protection from predators and environmental influences. Today, civil engineers have an important role in making low-cost, effective, reliable and functional structures by combining safety, economy and functionality parameters at an optimum level according to different criteria.
This book is both a good textbook and a useful resource by examining the basic calculation methods within the scope of civil engineering and the most up-to-date and innovative construction techniques. The important, up-to-date and key information in the content of the book will be a good start for civil engineer candidates in expressing their work in the near future in more technical ways and gaining a solid self-confidence in the context of engineering.
