Civil Engineering Article Databases
- The Civil Engineer's Mega Bookmark
Hosted by the Civil Engineering Library at Lund University (Sweden), this recently updated metasite boasts links to over 1,000 online resources of interest to civil engineers, many of them annotated. Resources are grouped in nine categories, including Research/ Education, Subject-Based Resources, Civil Engineering Journals, Organisations/ Institutes, and Discussion Forums, among others. The site also offers a guide to finding building codes, regulations, and standards in fifteen countries. Surprisingly, there is no internal search engine, but on the whole, the site is a well-organized and very useful resource for civil engineers and engineering librarians.
- Writing Guidelines for Engineering and Science Students
Many in industry have criticized higher education engineering and science curricula for neglecting writing and public speaking skills. This site takes care of that.
Organized by news, landmarks, channels and local guides, this site is all about civil engineering.
- Concrete Engineering Laboratory Site (University of Tokyo)
"The Concrete Engineering Laboratory aims to study the entire life of concrete based infrastructures. Our research group challenges civil engineering problems related to CONCRETE from material and structural design stage to long-term service and durability through construction in practice, curing, hardening and aging of structures."
- Construction Site
A site that contains various links to resources in all areas of construction.
- Geotechnical Engineering
A comprehensive library of Internet resources about Geotechnical Engineering, including WWW, Gopher, and FTP servers, and newsgroups. The library offers not only an cataloging service but also provides the base for the Electronic Journal of Geotechnical Engineering. Part of the WWW Virtual Library.
