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.

For the same sample, the limits of the percentages finer than the 1 in. sieve are
95 and 100, which also means that the limits of the percentages coarser than 1 in
. are 0 and 5. From the tables it can be seen that the percentages of the amounts
For example, the percentage of tricalcium silicate is calculated from the amounts
of lime, silica, alumina, iron oxide, and sulfur oxide. Similarly, the percentage of
dicalcium silicate is computed from the amounts of tricalcium silicate and silica, ...
Using mechanical analysis, or sieve analysis, we can determine the percentage
of particles of various sizes in a soil sample. The procedure involves taking a
representative sample of the soil and shaking it through a stack of standard
