5.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Summary of Basic Engineering Information March 3 2009
By Jan Peczkis - Published on Amazon.com
This work provides information on such things as geometric sections, beams, trusses, arches, plates, etc., often under various loading conditions. Its chapter on frame analysis is notable. Also featured are such things as building foundations, pipes and tunnels, soils, retaining structures, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Condensed convenience Aug. 5 2008
By J. Klein - Published on Amazon.com
This is a very handy little book. Properties of plane areas, basic vibration, beam formulas, plates w/ various b.c.'s, foundations, frames, arches, earth retaining, pipes & tunnels. Think of it as a specialized, watered down Roark's with more than a few hidden gems. It was extremely useful in my exam and is still very used as a quick reference or for basic first passes and superpositions for more complicated problems.

I humbly suggest that the review mentioning units is unfounded. The book is unitless as far as I've seen, aside from the examples. The examples use metric units.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Punch per Pound! June 3 2010
By Robert A. Avila - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This handy little reference is equation and information dense. Basic and oft used engineering equations are organized in a simple way.

I bought this for the PE in April, 2010. I used it to answer one question... which makes it worth the price right there.

In my day to day practice, I use it for frame engineering. This one is a keeper.

1.0 out of 5 stars unknown factors in review Feb. 13 2008
By Gary P. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
The book provides numerous structural formula in metric format only. there is a conversion chart that shows up at the end. Nowhere in the description of the book does it state the formula applications are for SI units ONLY.
