This expansive volume presents the essential topics related to construction materials composition and their practical application in structures and civil installations. The book's diverse slate of expert authors assemble invaluable case examples and performance data on the most important groups of materials used in construction, highlighting aspects such as nomenclature, the properties, the manufacturing processes, the selection criteria, the products/applications, the life cycle and recyclability, and the normalization. Civil Engineering Materials: Science, Processing, and Design is ideal for practicing architects; civil, construction, and structural engineers, and serves as a comprehensive reference for students of these disciplines. This book also: Am Provides a substantial and detailed overview of traditional materials used in structures and civil infrastructure Am Discusses properties of natural and synthetic materials in construction and materials' manufacturing processes Am Addresses topics important to professionals working with structural materials, such as corrosion, nanomaterials, materials life cycle, not often covered outside of journal literature Am Diverse author team presents expect perspective from civil engineering, construction, and architecture Am Features a detailed glossary of terms and over 400 illustrationsThey include alloy engineering steels and alloy steels for pressure vessels, bearing steels, tool steels, high-speed steels and steels with special physical properties. ... Conclusion In terms of its use in civil construction, the introduction of steel as a structural material profoundly altered the methods and limits ...
