This book describes a number of high-performance construction materials, including concrete, steel, fiber-reinforced cement, fiber-reinforced plastics, polymeric materials, geosynthetics, masonry materials and coatings. It discusses the scientific bases for the manufacture and use of these high-performance materials. Testing and application examples are also included, in particular the application of relatively new high-performance construction materials to design practice.Most books dealing with construction materials typically address traditional materials only rather than high-performance materials and, as a consequence, do not satisfy the increasing demands of today''s society. On the other hand, books dealing with materials science are not engineering-oriented, with limited coverage of the application to engineering practice. This book is thus unique in reflecting the great advances made on high-performance construction materials in recent years.This book is appropriate for use as a textbook for courses in engineering materials, structural materials and civil engineering materials at the senior undergraduate and graduate levels. It is also suitable for use by practice engineers, including construction, materials, mechanical and civil engineers.
Readers can now prepare for civil engineering challenges while gaining a broad overview of the materials they will use in their studies and careers with the unique content found in CIVIL ENGINEERING MATERIALS. This invaluable book covers traditional materials, such as concrete, steel, timber, and soils, and also explores non-traditional materials, such as synthetics and industrial-by products. Using numerous practical examples and straight-forward explanations, readers can gain a full understanding of the characteristics and behavior of various materials, how they interact, and how to best utilize and combine traditional and non-traditional materials. In addition to detailing the effective use of civil engineering materials, the book highlights issues related to sustainability to give readers a broader context of how materials are used in contemporary applications.
