Prepare yourself for today’s civil engineering challenges, getting with a broad overview of the materials you will use as civil engineer in your studies and career.
“CIVIL ENGINEERING MATERIALS” not only covers traditional materials, such as concrete, steel, timber, and soils but also explores non-traditional materials, such as synthetics and industrial-by products.
Numerous practical examples and straight-forward explanations help you to 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.
While emphasizing the use of civil engineering materials, the authors also carefully address the important issues related to sustainability to give you a broader context of how materials are used in contemporary applications.
