For courses in Civil Engineering Materials, Construction Materials, and Construction Methods and Materials offered in Civil, Environmental, or Construction engineering departments.
This introduction gives engineering 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. Since the authors cover the various materials used by civil and construction engineers in one useful reference, professors need assign only one book instead of using different books and handouts.
