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.

These cements generally have higher resistance against alkalis, reactive
aggregates, and seawater. They hydrate slowly and the rate of gain in strength is
lower than that of ordinary portland cement. The common blended cements are ...
The proportions of these compounds (also called phases) are computed from the
chemical analysis of cement following a ... The strength characteristics of portland
cement depend on the relative proportions of the silicates C,S and QS, which ...
Normal portland cement with or without lime is used for the mix. The
proportioning standards for plaster are given in ASTM C926. Generally, 1 part
cement, 3/4 part lime, and 4-8 parts sand (by volume) give a satisfactory mix.
Water should be ...
