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.

Electrical ducts and plumbing fixtures are made to run through the depth of the
joists by drilling holes through them. Drywall (or gypsum board) nailed to the
bottom of the joists hides these fixtures and provides a flat ceiling. Figure 5.28
The film thickness after curing is 5-12 mil (0.13-0.30 mm), and the coating should
be free of holes, voids, cracks, and deficient areas discernible to the unaided eye
(ASTM A775). When compared to other corrosion-protection systems or no ...
