For introductory courses in Civil Engineering/Construction Technology, including Construction Materials, Highway Construction, and Soil Mechanics courses. The text can also be utilized for basic courses in the areas of soil mechanics and concrete technology. Using practical levels of mathematics, language, and theory, this text provides a clear, concise, user-friendly introduction to the most current civil engineering and highway construction materials. It provides complete coverage of sources, properties, design methods, standards, tests and uses of materials and soils in various types of highway construction. Of particular value to Canadian colleges is the use of Canadian standards and practices in Chapter 7, Portland Cement Concrete.If resilient modulus test results are not available, the guide allows MR values to be calculated from the results of CBR and R test results as follows: MR (psi) = 1500 X CBR for ...
