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.

should ensure that its temperature remains normal. The temperature range
considered most desirable with conventional methods of curing is 70-90 °F (21.6-
32.2 °C). The temperature at which concrete is cured affects the development of ...
6.4.7 Temperature Susceptibility All asphalts are thermoplastic; they become
harder (more viscous) with decrease in temperature and softer (less viscous) with
increase in temperature. The temperature susceptibility of asphalt varies from
Low-temperature cracks, as asphalt becomes brittle and the pavement shrinks in
cold weather The new grading system is designed to provide measures of the
performance- related properties of asphalt binder that can be related, more ...
