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.

Iron and Steel Historical records and ancient sites show worldwide use of iron
and steel during the second and third millennia B . c . Many historians think that
the original center of steelmaking can be placed in India : the Hyderabad
It is diverted to slag pits or pots for further processing . Pulverized or crushed slag
is used in the manufacture of special cements . As noted , pig iron ( tapped every
4 - 6 hours ) runs to hot metal cars for conveyance to the steelmaking location .
Wrought iron is manufactured by melting and refining iron to a high degree of
purity . The molten metal is then poured into a ladle and mixed with hot slag . The
fluxing action of the slag causes a spongy mass to form which is processed by ...
