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 STL-1: Tension Test of Steel PURPOSE: To draw the stress-strain diagram
of steel, and determine yield, tensile strength, and percent elongation. RELATED
STANDARDS: ASTM A370, E8. DEFINITIONS: • Yield point is the first stress at ...
Calculate the elongation over the gage length and percent increase. REPORT:
Report the tensile strength, yield strength (or point) and the method of
determination, and percent elongation. PROBLEMS 1. What are the three
commercial forms ...
In the latter type of plastics, after the occurrence of necking down or yielding,
elongation continues for about 100 to 200 percent strain (percent elongation). For
most plastics, the modulus of elasticity in tension is not the same as that in ...
