Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Innovative in approach, this book is a comprehensive, integrative exploration of the science and technology of construction materials that begins with a section on the structure and mechanical properties of materials. Begins with a discussion of the structure of materials (at a microscopic level), moves through mechanical properties, and follows-up with sections dealing individually with specific construction materials. A source of information for beginning and practicing civil engineers.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for a two-semester undergraduate course for civil engineers, but can be adapted for shorter courses. Integrates the science and technology of building materials, which are usually taught in separate courses to different flavors of engineers, so that civil engineers tend to have a lack of understanding about the fundamental characteristics of the material they use. In addition to information on specific materials, discusses such aspects as atomic bonding, how microstructure develops, surface properties, response to stress, and rheology.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The modern principles of materials science have been applied extensively over the past three decades to construction materials, and the benefits of this approach can be seen clearly on job sites.
