Civil Engineering Materials can help you stay on the cutting edge of civil and construction engineering by helping you find engineering materials information yourself.   


What does this book cover?


Civil Engineering Materials doesn’t seek to encyclopaedically list the properties of the thousands of different engineering materials available today. Rather, it aims to give you the skill and knowledge you need to find that information yourself. It can also show you how to analyse and apply the latest information available, so you’ll always be on the cutting edge of engineering materials knowledge.


Civil Engineering Materials also addresses:


  • The characteristics of emerging and traditional non-structural materials
  • How you can calculate the performance of an engineering material based on factors like its electrical resistance, thermal conductivity and specific heat
  • Worked example problems using examples from the text
  • Guidance on writing reports
