For courses in Engineering Design and Computations, Introduction to Civil Engineering, and AutoCAD Civil 3D.


Unique in approach, AutoCAD Civil 3D offers an innovative blend of core civil engineering concepts and thorough AutoCAD Civil 3D instruction. It moves beyond a how-to manual, to explain why the software produces specific results and how it can be used to solve specific civil engineering problems. Flexible in design, the book begins with an overview of the software and its interface, introduces a comprehensive design project and then covers advanced usage of each of the software’s capabilities. Ideal for both lecture and lab, the text uses screen shots, dialogue boxes, CAD images, and digital AutoCAD files to introduce the procedures and applications of AutoCAD Civil 3D.
