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.

Based on structural requirements , masonry walls are also divided into two types :
• Load bearing • Non - load bearing Load - bearing ... For example , a partition
wall that does not support floor or roof loads is a non - loadbearing interior wall .
Before the mortar sets , the wall should be checked vertically , horizontally , and
along an angle , to see that all the units are aligned , leveled , and plumb . ...
When building double - wythe walls , both wythes should be laid at the same time
In ( unreinforced ) concrete masonry , the horizontal spacing of control joints (
using Type I units ) is two times the height of the wall or 40 ft ( 12 m ) , whichever
is smaller . For example , a wall of height 10 ft will have a maximum spacing of ...
