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.

In concrete with reinforcing or prestressing steel, deterioration can also be due to
corrosion of the reinforcement. Corrosion risk is higher for structures exposed to
seawater or deicing salts. In the last decade, corrosion has emerged as the ...
4.5 REINFORCED MASONRY In reinforced masonry, reinforcement acting in
conjunction with the masonry is used to develop flexural strength and resist
lateral loads (Fig 4.30). Reinforced grouted masonry is made with solid clay units
7.6.3 Uses Welded wire fabric is used as concrete reinforcement for crack control
in residential slabs, driveways, sidewalks, and slabs for light construction. In a
slab on grade (or ground-supported concrete slab), cracking is due primarily to ...
