The construction of buildings and structures relies on having a thorough understanding of building materials. Without this knowledge it would be impossible to build safe, efficient, and durable buildings, structures, and homes. Building Materials in Civil Engineering provides an overview of the complete range of building materials available to civil engineers and all those involved in the building and construction industries.

The book begins with an introductory chapter describing the basic properties of building materials. Further chapters cover the basic properties of building materials, air hardening cement materials, cement, concrete, building mortar, wall and roof materials, construction steel, wood, waterproof materials, building plastics, heat-insulating materials. and sound-absorbing materials and finishing materials. Each chapter includes a series of questions, allowing readers to test the knowledge they have gained. A detailed appendix gives information on the testing of building materials.


Under its Editor-in-Chief, Professor Haimei Zhang, the editorial committee for the original Chinese version of the book, The Programming Textbook for National Higher Vocational and Professional Civil Engineering: Building Materials, includes many leading members of the Chinese civil engineering community.
