Civil Engineering Materials
This book deals with properties, applications and analysis of important materials of construction/civil engineering. It offers full coverage of how materials are made or obtained, their physical properties, their mechanical properties, how they are used in construction, how they are tested in the lab, and their strength characteristics--information that is essential for material selection and elementary design. Contains illustrative examples and tables and figures from professional organizations. KEY TOPICS: Considers all common materials of civil engineering/construction--and looks at each in depth: e.g., physical properties, mechanical properties, code provisions, methods of testing, quality control, construction procedures, and material selection. Discusses laboratory testing procedures for selected tests--provides step-by-step descriptions of laboratory test procedures to determine properties of materials. All test procedures are based on relevant ASTM specification. MARKET: For Civil Engineers, Construction Engineers, Architects, and Agricultural Engineers.

In addition to the increase in strength , superplasticizers eliminate segregation of
concrete and allow good dispersion of cement particles in water , accelerating
the rate of hydration . The uniform distribution of cement particles is partly ...
Class C fly ash has some cementing property , in addition to pozzolanic
properties . Fly ash consists of a large proportion of SiO2 ( 45 – 60 percent ) and
smaller amounts of AlOz ( 20 – 35 percent ) , Fe , Oz ( 3 – 13 percent ) , and CaO

The addition of steel fibers to concrete may decrease its slump as much as 50
percent . The concrete may exhibit dryness caused by the fact that fiber -
reinforced concrete does not exhibit as much bleeding as normal concrete . In
