Materials for Civil and Construction Engineers
Synopses & Reviews
Materials for Civil and Construction Engineers, 3/e is ideal for courses in Civil Engineering Materials, Construction Materials, and Construction Methods and Materials offered in Civil, Environmental, or Construction engineering departments.
This introduction gives students a basic understanding of the material selection process and the behavior of materials — a fundamental requirement for all civil and construction engineers performing design, construction, and maintenance. The authors cover the various materials used by civil and construction engineers in one useful reference, limiting the vast amount of information available to the introductory level, concentrating on current practices, and extracting information that is relevant to the general education of civil and construction engineers. A large number of experiments, figures, sample problems, test methods, and homework problems gives students opportunity for practice and review.
KEY BENEFIT: This introduction gives readers a basic understanding of the material selection process and the behavior of materials — a fundamental requirement for all civil and construction engineers performing design, construction, and maintenance. The various materials used by civil and construction engineers are all covered in one useful reference.
KEY TOPICS: Materials Engineering Concepts; Nature of Materials; Steel; Aluminum; Aggregates; Portland Cement; Portland Cement Concrete; Masonry; Asphalt and Asphalt Mixtures; Wood; Composites.
MARKET: The various materials used by civil and construction engineers are all covered in this useful reference.
Revision of the best selling civil engineering materials book on the market right now. Appropriate for civil engineering students at the junior or senior level. In the second edition, new sample problems have been added throughout the text. Many numerical problems have been added at the end of each chapter.
