Om boka

Construction Equipment Management for Engineers, Estimators, and Owners, Second Edition has been extensively rewritten to not only bring it up to date with the state of current practice, but also to serve as a textbook for university courses in construction engineering and management.


The authors advanced the previous edition's practical, hands-on approach and added material on the future of construction equipment fleet management, which they believe will require a new technology-based skillset to maximize the cost-effectiveness of construction equipment operations. As such, the book covers the latest construction equipment technologies.


Features:








Examines emergent technologies in the field, including automated machine guidance systems, intelligent compaction operations, and equipment-related civil integrated management tools.







Provides information on how to reduce an equipment fleet's environmental impact, decreasing greenhouse gas emissions through enhanced equipment management and optimization practices.







Discusses estimating equipment ownership, operating costs, economic life, and optimal replacement timing.







Demonstrates how to maximize profit by determining the optimum equipment mix and estimating productivity.







Illustrates the use of production-based linear scheduling and stochastic simulations to maximize project cost and schedule certainty.





This new edition will serve as an essential textbook for students as well as a valuable reference for a wide range of professionals within the construction, architecture, and engineering industries.

The firm was founded in 1996 and provides complex project management and cost engineering services to public agencies, consultants, and construction companies. G&A, Inc. has been called on to assist with projects throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as in New Zealand, Okinawa, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East. The firm specializes in the development of project management services for complex mega-projects. He received both his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Civil Engineering from Oregon State University and his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in Oklahoma, Texas and Oregon, a Certified Cost Engineer, a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and a Fellow of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in the UK.





Dr. Gransberg retired in 2017 as a professor of construction engineering at Iowa State University, where he held an endowed research chair for 5 years. He is also an Emeritus Professor of Architecture and Engineering at the University of Oklahoma, retiring from that institution in 2010. Before that he held a tenured position at Texas Tech University.


Before moving to academia in 1994, he spent over 20 years in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, retiring at the rank of lieutenant colonel. His research is centered in the delivery of complex infrastructu
