9780081002759: Civil Engineering Materials

Civil Engineering Materials explains why construction materials behave the way they do. It covers the construction materials content for undergraduate courses in Civil Engineering and related subjects and serves as a valuable reference for professionals working in the construction industry. The book concentrates on demonstrating methods to obtain, analyze and use information rather than focusing on presenting large amounts of data. The topics are relevant to all the different stages of the course, starting with basic properties of materials and leading to more complex areas such as the theory of concrete durability and corrosion of steel. The text is supported by a large number of worked examples of exam-style questions, each of which is rated to show the stage of the course at which they should be understood.

  • Discusses the broad scope of traditional, emerging and non-structural materials
  • Rather than packing the book with facts that assume a prior knowledge of material properties like other texts do, this book starts from the beginning by explaining what specific heat, thermal conductivity and electrical resistivity are and how they can be used to calculate the performance of construction materials.
  • Contains numerous worked examples with detailed solutions that provide precise references to the relevant equations in the text.
  • Includes a detailed section on how to write reports as well as a full section on how to use and interpret publications, giving students and early career professionals valuable practical guidance.
