Book Description

Materials for Civil and Construction Engineers, 3/e is ideal for courses in Civil Engineering Materials, Construction Materials, and Construction Methods and Materials offered in Civil, Environmental, or Construction engineering departments.

This introduction gives students a basic understanding of the material selection process and the behavior of materials — a fundamental requirement for all civil and construction engineers performing design, construction, and maintenance. The authors cover the various materials used by civil and construction engineers in one useful reference, limiting the vast amount of information available to the introductory level, concentrating on current practices, and extracting information that is relevant to the general education of civil and construction engineers. A large number of experiments, figures, sample problems, test methods, and homework problems gives students opportunity for practice and review.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is one of the most comprehensive and up to date CE materials textbooks available.”

-Jose Weissmann, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT SAN ANTONIO

 

“This book is very well written and easy to follow.  The contents of aggregates, Portland cement concrete, and asphalt binders and asphalt mixtures are exactly what I need for teaching my transportation materials course.”

-Jie Han, KANSAS STATE

3College Materials Textbook
By Morgan
I bought this book for a college class called Materials in Civil Engineering. Overall, the book was a bit boring, but relatively thorough. It's hard to make this subject more intriguing.

The section about mix design was not great. The content was confusing, and the examples were kind of hard to follow. I know there are always less strong sections in textbooks. However, concrete mix design is extremely important, and it is unfortunate that this is the sub-par section.

By Amazon Customer
Don't buy/rent the digital copy. Many of the figures in the digital version are incorrect. On page 376 figure 9.30 is a picture of a man when it should be a Marshall Stability Machine. I wish they would have made such obvious errors in earlier chapters so I would have realized all the mistakes in this book before making dumb errors on easy questions asking to identify testing apparatuses on my lab quizzes. Engineering classes are difficult enough without losing easy points because your textbook has mislabeled all the equipment.

By Amazon Customer
Book came in pieces literally in pieces. A chunk of book here a chunk there. The binding was shot and they randomly shoved pages back in. Also, the front cover was missing.
