Bridges and More takes the reader from the early years of Civil Engineering when Purdue's campus consisted of a smattering of red brick buildings surrounded by grassy meadows and roads flanked by white, wooden fences to today's state-of-the-art facilities such as the Bowen Laboratory for Large-Scale Civil Engineering Research and the online hub for the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES). The highly illustrated book touches on major milestones in Purdue Civil Engineering history from Road School, to the Ross Summer Surveying Camp, to Purdue's involvement in world landmarks such as the Panama Canal, Hoover Dam, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Tower of Pisa. Often, Purdue Civil Engineers are public servants, evolving research that helps to prevent disasters like building collapses and bridge failures. Bridges and More honors Purdue's School of Civil Engineering with historic images and an appealing account of 125 years of education, research and a profession that is, as the title suggests, about so much more than bridges.

"Sons of Martha: Civil Engineering Readings in Modern Literature" explores the history and heritage, the people, the projects and the ethics involved in the development of the civil engineering profession. The first part of this anthology discusses such topics as the art of engineering, the role of the engineer in society, and the development of engineering education. The second and third sections bring to life some of the important people and projects in the civil engineering field, the fourth part examines the field, the civil engineering profession and its relationship with the rest of society. In all, this collection of writings present an intriguing look at the history and development of the civil engineering field.

After an examination of fundamental theories as applied to civil engineering, authoritative coverage is included on design practice for certain materials and specific structures and applications. A particular feature is the incorporation of chapters on construction and site practice, including contract management and control.

This volume contains 27 papers by the leading practitioners, educators, and researchers of civil engineering. The peer-reviewed papers, jointly published in ASCE journals have been gathered in this volume to serve as a testament to the state-of-the-art of civil engineering at the outset of the 21st century, as well as to commemorate the Society's Sesquicentennial. Each paper explores a particular aspect of civil engineering knowledge and practice. The authors, experts who have mastered their fields and helped shape the profession, present the cutting-edge research of the leading experts and notable people in their respective field. While each paper is unique, collectively they provide a snapshot of the profession while offering, studied well-thought predictions and likely developments in the years to come. The papers celebrate the history, heritage, and accomplishments of the profession in all facets of practice, including construction facilities, special structures, engineering mechanics, surveying and mapping, irrigation and water quality, forensics, computing, materials, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, and transportation engineering. Each paper explores the development of a particular civil engineering specialty, including milestones and future barriers, constraints, and opportunities. Together the papers address the mounting complexity facing civil engineering stemming from rapid growth in scientific knowledge, technological development, and human populations, especially in the last 50 years. An overarching theme is the need for systems-level approaches and consideration from undergraduate education through advanced engineering materials, processes, technologies, and design methods and tools. These papers speak to the need for civil engineers of all specialties to recognize and embrace the growing interconnectedness of the global infrastructure, economy, society, and the need to work for more sustainable, life-cycle-oriented solutions. While embracing the past and the present, the papers collected here clearly have an eye on the future needs of ASCE and the civil engineering profession.
