Additional Book Details

Exploring AutoCAD Civil 3D 2018 textbook introduces the users to the powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) solution, AutoCAD Civil 3D. The BIM solution in AutoCAD Civil 3D helps create and visualize a coordinated data model. This data model can then be used to design and analyze a civil engineering project for its optimum and cost-effective performance. This textbook has been written considering the needs of the professionals such as engineers, surveyors, watershed and storm water analysts, land developers and CAD technicians, who wish to learn and explore the usage and abilities of AutoCAD Civil 3D in their respective domains. This textbook provides comprehensive text and graphics to explain various concepts and procedures required in designing solutions for various infrastructure works. The accompanying tutorials and exercises, which relate to the real world projects, help you better understand the tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D.

This textbook consists of 13 chapters covering Points Creations, Surface Creations, Surface Analysis, Corridor Modeling, Pipe Networks, Pressure Networks, Parcels, Corridor Bowties and Dynamic Profiles and so on. The chapters are organized in a pedagogical sequence to help users understand the concepts easily. Each chapter begins with a command section that provides a detailed explanation of the commands and tools in AutoCAD Civil 3D. The chapters in this textbook cover the basic as well as advanced concepts in AutoCAD Civil 3D such as COGO points, surfaces and surface analysis, alignments, profiles, sections, grading, assemblies, corridor modeling, earthwork calculations, and pipe and pressure networks. This edition covers the description of all enhancements and newly introduced tools.

Some of the Salient Features of this textbook are as follows:

Consists of 13 chapters that are arranged in pedagogical sequence covering the scope of the software.
Consists of 806 pages, more than 765 illustrations, and a comprehensive coverage of concepts and tools.
Consists of 38 tutorials and about 20 exercises which provide real-world experience of designing engineering projects using AutoCAD Civil 3D.
Step-by-step examples to guide the users through the learning process.
Additional information provided throughout the book in the form of tips and notes.
Self-Evaluation test, Review Questions, and Exercises are given at the end of each chapter so that the users can assess their knowledge.
