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.

3.13.3 Grout Grout is a mixture of cement (or cement plus lime), fine aggregate,
pea gravel (or finer coarse aggregate, generally 3/8 in. (10 mm) maximum), and
water, with a consistency that allows for pouring without segregation. The term ...
Prior to grouting, the grout space must be clean without any mortar projections
greater than 1/2 in. (12.5 mm), mortar droppings, or foreign material. Grouting of
any section of wall must be completed within 1 day, with no interruptions longer ...
