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. KEY TOPICS: 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. MARKET: For Civil Engineers, Construction Engineers, Architects, and Agricultural Engineers.

The heat of hydration generated during the hydration of this cement is lower than
that of Type I cement , and thus is apt for use in mass concrete works such ... The
lower heat of hydration is also beneficial when placing concrete in hot weather .
The former may cause flash set when mixed with water , accompanied by the
release of considerable heat . Tricalcium silicate releases twice as much heat as
does dicalcium silicate . Type IV cement , which has low levels of CzA and CzS ...
Conduction is a process in which heat is passed between adjacent stationary
particles of matter . From a microscopic standpoint , it refers to energy being
handed down from one atom or molecule to the next . Heat transfer through a
solid wall ...
