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.

It is often found as sheet mica and also occurs in such rocks as crystalline
limestone, dolomite, and serpentine. Nearly 55 percent of the mineral
composition of slate is mica. Common Rocks. The principal mineral constituents
of granite are ...
The modulus of elasticity of granite and limestone (in compression) is in the
range of 2,000 to 7,000 ksi (13.8 to 48.3 GPa). Sandstone generally has a lower
modulus, which may range from 1,000 to 5,000 ksi (6.9 to 34.5 GPa).The
modulus of ...
Masonry cement contains a finely divided material such as lime or ground
limestone and an air-entraining agent, mixed with portland cement. Its chemical
makeup is not regulated and varies between brands. The admixture and
limestone in ...
