Excerpt from Structural Engineering Fundamental Properties of Materials

This volume Is the second of the writer's work on Structural Engineering, which work is intended to cover the parts of the subject most important for the engineer and especially for the engineering students in technical schools.

It was originally intended that the present volume should form the second part of the volume on the Strength of Materials, with which it is closely connected; but in order to avoid making the first volume too bulky, this part is published separately. It does not deal in detail with processes of manufacture, which should be studied, as far as necessary, in the more specialized books herein referred to; but is intended to give the fundamental properties of the principal materials, which should be familiar to the engineer. Thus it does not overlap or replace the detailed works on Materials, but brings together logically, and it is hoped clearly, the fundamental properties, the constitution and physical structure, the importance and effect of various ingredients, the effect of different treatments, and the significance of the specifications used to secure desired properties in the material to be employed.

The book is intended to be used in connection with the previous volume on the Strength of Materials, and the needs of constructing engineers have been mainly considered. The point of view of the practical engineer has been emphasized throughout, as it was in the earlier volume. However incomplete this work, it may be of some interest to the student of the subject to see what portions of it the writer, who has done as much practical engineering work as teaching, considers most important for the constructing engineer to know.

It is hoped that this volume will be found a suitable continuation of the first volume of the series. The third and fourth volumes, dealing respectively with the Theory and Design of Elementary Structures and with structures ...
