Index.

  • Begins with a discussion of the structure of materials (at a microscopic level), moves through mechanical properties, and follows-up with sections dealing individually with specific construction materials.
  • Integrates the science of materials and materials technology throughout.
    • Shows that to understand materials behavior and to design better materials it is necessary to understand the relationships between the fundamental chemical and physical properties of materials and their engineering behavior.

  • Emphasizes materials used primarily in civil engineering applications.
  • Focuses on civil engineering concerns, such as surface properties, rheology and amorphous structures.
