Review:


"Construction Methods and Management by Nunnally is the only text I have found that comprehensively covers the methods and practices of the construction industry. The chapters are written in such a way that they are essentially independent and can be taught in any order the instructor wishes." — John Wiggins, New Jersey Institute of Technology


From the Back Cover:

This new edition of a classic in the field integrates major construction management topics with coverage of the methods of heavy/highway and building construction. This unique text and reference incorporates both U.S. customary and metric (SI) units throughout the text and problems, presents concrete formwork design equations and procedures in both units, and covers construction equipment maintenance practices and safety considerations. Heavily illustrated with both photos and line drawings, this book combines a solid foundation in principles with practical applications.

Some of the features of this new edition include:

  • New applications in the construction use of the mass diagram, design of concrete formwork, aggregate plant calibration and production, and concrete and asphalt production.
  • New sections on construction equipment maintenance, mini-excavators and skid-steer loaders, fiber reinforcing and reinforcing bars, and the use of GPS in construction.
  • Major revisions to Chapter 3 on excavating and lifting and revised and consolidated material on soil stabilization and improvement.
