Description

For sophomore/junior-level introductory courses in Civil Engineering Materials or Materials of Construction. Updated to include current environmental concerns and construction trends, this introductory text covers the basic concepts of civil and highway engineering materials. Providing theory with an emphasis on practical applications, the authors outline the appropriate laboratory test procedures for quality control and provide a complete list of ASTM standards.
