Civil Engineering Materials: Introduction and Laboratory Testing discusses the properties, characterization procedures, and analysis techniques of primary civil engineering materials. It presents the latest design considerations and uses of engineering materials as well as theories for fully understanding them through numerous worked mathematical examples. The book also includes important laboratory tests which are clearly described in a step-by-step manner and further illustrated by high-quality figures. Also, analysis equations and their applications are presented with appropriate examples and relevant practice problems, including Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) styled questions as well those found on the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Concrete Field Testing Technician - Grade I certification exam.
This book is intended for students in civil engineering, construction engineering, civil engineering technology, construction management engineering technology, and construction management programs.
