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. 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. For Civil Engineers, Construction Engineers, Architects, and Agricultural Engineers.

Test CON-6: Flexural Strength of Concrete PURPOSE: To determine the flexural
strength of concrete by the use of simple beam specimens with third-point
loading. RELATED STANDARDS: ASTM C78, C192, C39. DEFINITION: •
Modulus of ...
The bending beam rheometer test is used to measure the low temperature
stiffness properties of the asphalt binder. The test measures the creep stiffness
and the creep rate (logarithmic) by recording the response of a small binder
