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.

1 Introduction Civil engineering consists of the design, construction,
maintainance, inspection, and management of characteristically diverse public
works projects, from railroads to high-rise buildings to sewage treatment centers.
In addition to the materials mentioned above, there are a significant number of
secondary construction materials common to engineering projects. Sealants,
adhe- sives, floor and wall coverings, fasteners, and doors and windows fall into
