So far in the twenty-first century, there have been many developments in our understanding of materials’ behaviour and in their technology and use. This new edition has been expanded to cover recent developments such as the use of glass as a structural material. It also now examines the contribution that material selection makes to sustainable construction practice, considering the availability of raw materials, production, recycling and reuse, which all contribute to the life cycle assessment of structures. As well as being brought up-to-date with current usage and performance standards, each section now also contains an extra chapter on recycling.

Covers the following materials:

  • metals
  • concrete
  • ceramics (including bricks and masonry)
  • polymers
  • fibre composites
  • bituminous materials
  • timber
  • glass.

This new edition maintains our familiar and accessible format, starting with fundamental principles and continuing with a section on each of the major groups of materials. It gives you a clear and comprehensive perspective on the whole range of materials used in modern construction. A must have for Civil and Structural engineering students, and for students of architecture, surveying or construction on courses which require an understanding of materials.

About the Author:

Peter Domone is Senior Lecturer in Concrete Technology at University College London with extensive experience teaching materials courses to first, second and third year civil engineering undergraduates.

 

John Illston is a retired Civil Engineer and Lecturer.

Review:

"Some of the civil engineering and architecture schools, however, now have less dedicated courses in materials and a significant part of the required materials knowledge is provided within other courses. A textbook such as this will hence not only be useful as a reference book for a number of these courses, but will also be helpful in providing a unified perspective to students learning about materials under these conditions."
―D. Gunaratnam, Architectural Science Review

Praise for Previous Editions

"Comprehensive and entirely appropriate for our students. Recommended reading." ―Lecturer in Architectural Technology, London Southbank University

"A broad-based, yet sufficiently deep materials book to cover most undergraduate materials needs."
―Lecturer in Construction Materials, Kingston University, UK
