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.

The common blended cements are portland pozzolan cement, pozzolan-modified
portland cement, portland blast-furnace slag cement, slag-modified portland
cement, and masonry cement. Portland Pozzolan and Pozzolan Cement.
Blast-furnace slag is a nonmetallic product, consisting essentially of silicates and
aluminates of calcium and other bases, which is developed in a molten condition
simultaneously with iron in a blast furnace. Granulated blast furnace slag is the ...
The molten metal is then poured into a ladle and mixed with hot slag. The fluxing
action of the slag causes a spongy mass to form which is processed by rolling
and pressing. This is wrought iron. It is the only iron-bearing material containing ...
