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.

There are three moduli of elasticity, which correspond to three types of stress:
tension, compression, and shear. They are thus the modulus of elasticity in
tension, the modulus of elasticity in compression, and the modulus of elasticity in
Compression Testing. In the United States, the compressive strength of concrete
is established from compression tests on cylindrical specimens of 6-in. diameter
and 12-in. height (ASTM C39, "Compression Strength of Cylindrical Concrete ...
Test CON-3: Compression Test of Concrete Cylinders PURPOSE: To determine
the compressive strength of concrete. RELATED STANDARDS: ASTM C39, C192
, C617. EQUIPMENT: Concrete molds, tamping rod, mallet, trowel, scoop, ...
