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.

pozzolan with lime. 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
Portland-pozzolan cement produced using calcined Monterey shale was utilized
in the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco-Oakland
Bay Bridge. The properties of natural pozzolan vary considerably depending on ...
Many natural pozzolans can be used in the raw state; others, like clay and shale,
should be calcined. When moist, particles in the raw state require drying and,
usually, grinding to a fineness equal to that of cement, before use. They are used
