Civil Engineering Materials 2nd Edition, Shan Somayaji


Civil Engineering Materials 2nd Edition PDF Download Ebook. Shan Somayaji deals with properties, applications and analysis of important materials of construction/civil engineering. It offers full coverage of how materials are made or obtained, their physical properties, their mechanical properties, how they are used in construction, how they are tested in the lab, and their strength characteristics--information that is essential for material selection and elementary design.

This text contains illustrative examples and tables and figures from professional organizations. It considers all common materials of civil engineering/construction--and looks at each in depth: e.g., physical properties, mechanical properties, code provisions, methods of testing, quality control, construction procedures, and material selection.

Author discusses laboratory testing procedures for selected tests--provides step-by-step descriptions of laboratory test procedures to determine properties of materials. All test procedures are based on relevant ASTM specification. For Civil Engineers, Construction Engineers, Architects, and Agricultural Engineers, this book is highly recommended.

This text provides step-by-step descriptions of laboratory test procedures to determine properties of materials-at the end of most chapters, instead of as an adjunct to the text. All test procedures are based on relevant ASTM specification, but are presented in a manner that makes them more useful and convenient in a classroom atmosphere.

Author emphasizes that laboratory testing is an essential part of the study of materials of civil engineering or construction, and facilitates use in both lecture and lab. Some of the information on properties, specifications, and uses of few materials are repeated at several places within the text.
