Excerpt from The Civil Engineer's Handbook: A Convenient Reference Book for Chainmen, Rodmen, Transitmen, Levelers, Surveyors, as Well as Draftsmen, Computers, and Railroad, Municipal, and Hydraulic Engineers In this little volume the publishers are offering to all who are interested a compact collection of principles, methods, formulas, and tables pertaining to the different branches of civil engineering. It is intended as a ready reference manual for the student as well as for the technical man engaged in practical work. For this reason, whenever there was a choice of rules or methods, only the simplest and those best suited to practical use were selected. For the same reason, wherever possible, examples such as would occur in practice have been given, together with their solutions, thus illustrating the different steps and processes to be performed in order to obtain practical results. Attention is called to the tables, which are very numerous. Many of these can be found elsewhere only in special works, and many are original, being found only in this book.
