Specialist authors on each type of construction material

Demonstrates each material's behaviour from its chemical and physical structure

Summary

This established textbook provides an understanding of materials’ behaviour through knowledge of their chemical and physical structure. It covers the main classes of construction materials: metals, concrete, other ceramics (including bricks and masonry), polymers, fibre composites, bituminous materials, timber, and glass. It provides a clear and comprehensive perspective on the whole range of materials used in modern construction, to form a must-have for civil and structural engineering students, and those on courses such as architecture, surveying and construction.

It begins with a Fundamentals section followed by a section on each of the major groups of materials. In this new edition:

- The section on fibre composites FRP and FRC has been completely restructured and updated.

- Typical questions with answers to any numerical examples are given at the end of each section, as well as an instructor’s manual with further questions and answers.

- The links in all parts have also been updated and extended, including links to free reports from The Concrete Centre, as well as other online resources and material suppliers’ websites.

- and now with solutions manual and resources for adopting instructors on https://www.crcpress.com/9781498741101
