Book Description

February 27, 2010 0136110584 978-0136110583 3

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read. January 6, 2009
This book was easy to read and follow along with. The information is mostly well laid out and the example problems are ok, could use more. Biggest downside was that the answers were not in the text.

Concise and "cutting-to-the-chase". I would use those words to reflect about what I have read so far from this book. Great deal and it came in an awesome condition.

5.0 out of 5 stars good used book February 15, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This used book is exactly identical as the one you need for you course! Although the cover page is different from what you see here, the content inside is exactly the same. The paper quality is acceptable while the price is a lot lower. The customer service is really good. I recommend it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Practical Examples July 12, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found and still find this text to be simple in my studies. It constantly provides and explains practical applications of the material. Although there is some theory, most of the text applies the engineering theory to the real world, helpful for infusion into the field and application in the lab.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT"S VAGUE ON THE THEORY AND EXAMPLES June 9, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This would be such a great book if it weren't so vague on the explanation on mix design and superpave. It's sometimes hard to follow the examples. Especially on the mix design.
