THE CIVIL ENGINEER'S USEFUL REFERENCES

THE CIVIL ENGINEER'S USEFUL REFERENCES

THE CIVIL ENGINEER’S USEFUL REFERENCES
(Civil Engineering Books)


By: Dindo Mojica, C.E., M.Eng




THE ENGINEER'S TECHNICAL BOOKS
(MUST-HAVE)



Certain standard technical books of reference for Civil Engineers are necessary for general and everyday use (applicable mostly on office and field works). Without such references an engineer is not able to meet conditions which are continually coming up in his practice. Every civil engineer should have a good technical library. 

The engineer's technical schoolbooks, lectures, and notes will form the best kind of a foundation for a working library. Among the best books to reinforce such a foundation are the following:



National Structural Code of the Philippines and Fire Code of the Philippines




National Structural Code of the Philippines 1992


National Structural Code of the Philippines 2001

 National Structural Code of the Philippines 2010 (latest)




National Building Code of the Philippines

These books cover the general field (and some specialized topics) of civil engineering in a very thorough manner. They should be found in every engineer's possession and should occupy a space on his working table. No matter how many other books he may be fortunate enough to possess, he will find the above the most useful.
