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.

This reaction, which occurs in the presence of moisture or humidity, reverts the
hydrated lime back to the original calcium carbonate — limestone. Lime is one of
the oldest building materials, used in the construction of masonry, roads, and ...
The chemical processes leading to hydrated lime and mortar are given below:
CaCO3 + heat = CaO + CO2 (limestone) (quicklime) (carbon dioxide) CaO + H2O
= Ca(OH)2 (quicklime) (water) (hydrated lime) Combining hydrated lime with ...
Type N is called normal hydrated lime, and Type S, special hydrated lime. Both
are suitable for finishing purposes. Type N has no maximum limit on the amount
of unhydrated oxides, and most of the MgO is unhydrated. Type S lime has an ...
