Grading : landscapingSMART, 3D machine control systems, stormwater management by Peter Petschek( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grading is one the most important aspects involved in landscape architecture, and, together with planting and vegetation, the most important tool in designing landscape. Landscape architects must be able to design using contour lines, as well as rapidly develop alternatives and consider options regarding design, ecology, economy, and technology. Knowledge of grading is an indispensable prerequisite. The book explains the basic aspects of grading such as land forms, scales, interpolation, elevation points, contour lines, earth mass calculation, and also introduces the topics of slope protection systems, rainwater management, or onsite grading. In the second edition, these basics have been updated to comprise new technologies including landscapingSMART, digital terrain modeling (DTM) and 3D machine control, as well as grading for roads and parking lots, and other terrain modeling construction machines. Numerous practical examples complement the theoretical foundations, and there is a section for exercises aimed at applying what has been learned

Visible, invisible : landscape works of Reed Hilderbrand by Douglas Reed( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents the work of Boston-based landscape architecture firm Reed Hilderbrand. Led by founding principals Douglas Reed and Gary Hilderbrand, the firm is widely recognized for rigorously conceived and carefully executed projects that merge the particular native qualities of a site with recognizably contemporary design expression. Their work embodies a deep embrace of modernism, a devotion to intellectual traditions in their field and a rich engagement of horticulture and ecological systems. The book examines a range of 40 public and private commissions in cities and rural settings, including institutional campuses, residences and urban regeneration projects such as the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University; Bennington College, Bennington, VT; Duke University, Durham, NC; Poetry Foundation, Chicago; Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, Kansas City, MO; Clyfford Still Museum, Denver; Dallas Museum of Art; Phoenix Art Museum; and the redevelopment of portions of the South Boston waterfront
Examples and theorems in analysis by P. L Walker( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examples and Theorems in Analysis takes a unique and very practical approach to mathematical analysis. It makes the subject more accessible by giving the examples equal status with the theorems. The results are introduced and motivated by reference to examples which illustrate their use, and further examples then show how far the assumptions may be relaxed before the result fails. A number of applications show what the subject is about and what can be done with it; the applications in Fourier theory, distributions and asymptotics show how the results may be put to use. Exercises at the end of each chapter, of varying levels of difficulty, develop new ideas and present open problems. Written primarily for first- and second-year undergraduates in mathematics, this book features a host of diverse and interesting examples, making it an entertaining and stimulating companion that will also be accessible to students of statistics, computer science and engineering, as well as to professionals in these fields
