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. KEY TOPICS: 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. MARKET: For Civil Engineers, Construction Engineers, Architects, and Agricultural Engineers.

content is generally expressed as a percentage of total or gross volume , which is
the solid volume plus the volume of voids . For example , a forty percent void
content means the solids ( including the pores within the solids ) occupy 60
Increase in the water content increases the voids in concrete , lowering the

... water X 100 ww X volume of voids where ww is the density of water . The
volume of voids can be calculated as W Volume of voids = soil volume - SG X ww
where W is the solid weight or dry weight of soil and SG is the specific gravity of
