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.

Round steel fibers, made from low- carbon or stainless steel, have diameters in
the range 0.01-0.039 in. (0.25-1 mm). Flat steel fibers, produced by shearing
sheets or flattening round wire, are available in thicknesses ranging from 0.006-
Before the scrap metal is placed in storage, it is screened for contaminants and
nonmetallic parts. ... Aluminum is added to control deoxidation and for fine
graining of steel. Chromium is added along with nickel to produce stainless steel.
