This complete guide to boundary surveying provides landowners, land surveyors and students with the necessary foundation to understand boundary surveying techniques and the common legal issues that govern boundary establishment. Far from a simple engineering function, boundary establishment is often a difficult and delicate matter, with real monetary and legal ramifications if not accomplished accurately. This book helps readers to understand why such challenges exist and what remedies may be available. Using only simple and logically explained mathematics, the principles and practice of boundary surveying are demystified for those without prior experience and the focused coverage of pivotal issues such as easements and setting lot corners will aid even licensed practitioners in untangling thorny cases. Practical advice on using both basic and advanced instruments is included, alongside clear explanations of legal regulations that will impact any surveyor’s work. For those who desire a more in-depth treatment of the mathematical aspects of boundary surveying, the Appendix includes the underlying theory and many examples of typical calculations performed by boundary surveyors.

Plane and Geodetic Surveying blends together theory and practice, conventional techniques and satellite-based methods, to provide the ideal book for students of surveying. It gives detailed guidance on how and when the principal surveying instruments (total stations, levels and navigational satellite receivers) should be used. It fully and clearly explains the concepts and formulae needed to convert instrument readings into useful and reliable results. It offers rigorous explanations of the theoretical background to surveying, while at the same time providing a wealth of useful advice about conducting a survey in practice. The book also contains an accompanying least square adjustment program that is available for free download. What’s New in the Second Edition: Revises and updates the text to reflect recent developments in satellite navigation, laser scanners and total stations Provides a more rigorous treatment of how to calculate and use mean earth curvature in geodetic geometry Includes substantial additional information on precise levelling, spherical and ellipsoidal geometry, trigonometric heighting and setting out Offers a fuller description of mapping systems, including the State Plane Coordinate System This book is essential for all students of surveying and for practitioners who need a ‘stand-alone’ text for further reading.

Damit der fertige Tunnel am Ende seine Funktion erf?llen kann, muss er exakt so liegen, wie er geplant wurde. Einfluss auf die Vortriebsgenauigkeit haben Trassen- und Gradientenplanung, Baugrund- und Grundwasserverh?ltnisse, das gew?hlte Vortriebsverfahren, Einwirkungen und Widerst?nde auf die Vortriebsmaschine sowie die begleitende Bau?berwachung und Kontrolle. Das Handbuch ist Grundlage f?r die Bauvorbereitung, die Vermessung und Bau?berwachung von Schildvortrieben und gilt gleicherma?en f?r Rohr- und T?bbingvortriebe, die mit gesteuerten Schildmaschinen durchgef?hrt werden. Bauherren, Planer, Pr?fer und Ausf?hrenden werden dieses Handbuch als technischen Leitfaden f?r einen sicheren und zielgenauen Vortrieb nutzen. Das Buch ist dar?ber hinaus auch als Lehrbuch im Rahmen der Aus- und Weiterbildung geeignet.

Membranverfahren haben sich in den vergangenen 15 Jahren von einem exotischen Sonderverfahren zu einem zuverlässigen Standardverfahren entwickelt. Für die Zwecke der Meerwasserentsalzung und Abwasseraufbereitung, aber auch für die Trennung organischer Stoffgemische in der chemischen Industrie stehen Polymer- und anorganische Membranen zur Verfügung, die selektiv, leistungsfähig und in hohem Maße beständig sind. Ausgehend von den verfahrenstechnischen Grundlagen werden in diesem Werk Methoden aufgeführt und hinsichtlich Genauigkeit und Grenzen diskutiert, die den Leser in die Lage versetzen, Anlagen schnell und doch mit ausreichender Sorgfalt auszulegen und mit Alternativen zu vergleichen.

Um Hilfe zu bitten fällt uns oft schwer, weil wir Angst haben, schwach und bedürftig zu scheinen. Eine völlig falsche Sichtweise, meint Amanda Palmer. Die Musikerin ist eine wahre Expertin darin, sich helfen zu lassen, bat sie doch bei unzähligen Gelegenheiten um die Unterstützung ihrer Fans. Dabei hat sie erfahren, dass der ausgetauschte Gefallen stets für beide Seiten ein Gewinn ist. Wer um Hilfe bittet, zeigt sich zwar verletzlich, erhält aber auch die Chance, Vertrauen zu beweisen und Beziehungen aufzubauen. Amanda Palmer hat ein großes Buch über Menschlichkeit geschrieben; über Ängste und Schwächen und über die Kraft der Güte und des Vertrauens.
