Design and Operation of Civil and Environmental Engineering Systems
Book News, Inc. For planners, policy makers, and environmental and civil engineers in government and commercial settings, including transportation planning, resource management, and structural design. The mathematical methodologies of operations researche.g. game theory, simulation, and optimizationare applied to a wide range of systems analysis, cost-benefit, and risk assessment problems. Readable, well-organized chapters by contributors from the U.S., Canada, and abroad survey the literature, issues, trends, models, and model applications. Equations, exercises, graphs, charts and illustrations supplement the theoretical and practical case study discussions. -- Copyright © 1999 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved
Synopsis Within civil and environmental engineering, researchers are making increased use of the tools of operations research (OR) in solving problems. These tools include optimization, simulation, game theory, and other mathematical techniques. The setting to which these tools apply encompass the entire range of problems that civil and environmental engineers encounter, including problems of both operation and design. This volume focuses on sophisticated applications of OR, dealing with a range of...
