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.

If the curve drawn for the test sample falls within the limiting curves, the sample is
said to satisfy the approved specifications or standards. If, instead, the test curve
deviates from the limits or slips outside of the curves, the sample should be ...
When no straight-line portion exists (or beyond the elastic limit), the modulus of
elasticity can be interpreted to be the slope of the tangent to the curve at any
point on the diagram. When the modulus of elasticity is represented as the slope
Sieve analysis yields the percentages of particles retained in each sieve, which
can be used to plot the grain-size distribution, or gradation curve. The horizontal
axis of the gradation curve shows the particle sizes, plotted from left to right in ...
