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.

Magnetic Materials. When a material has a net magnetic moment or spin it is
called a magnetic material. In certain atoms, the magnitude and direction of the
magnetic moments associated with various electrons may be such that they all ...
The most important iron-bearing minerals or iron ores are limonite (brown iron
ore, Fe2O3 • nH2O) hematite (red iron ore, Fe2O3) and magnetite (magnetic
oxide of iron, Fe3O4). Hematite, which is anhydrous ferric oxide, the most
It has magnetic properties. In general, properties of steel are greatly affected by
three factors: • Chemical composition • Heat treatment • Mechanical work Carbon
and alloying elements affect both physical properties (such as weldability and ...
