Civil Engineering Materials Book By Neil Jackson

The importance of an understanding of the materials used in civil engineering and

building projects is widely recognised, and this is reflected by the increasing

emphasis being placed on the teaching of material properties at undergraduate

level. This introductory textbook on materials satisfies a need for a single book

covering the principal materials used in civil engineering and building works.

The aim has been to provide students with an authoritative text which will also

serve as a valuable source of reference in their subsequent careers. In this fifth edition,

with three new contributors, the Parts on Metals, Timber and Bituminous

Materials have been rewritten, and all other Parts have been extensively revised to

maintain an up-to-date coverage of all materials. The fundamental properties of

soils continue to be covered in greater depth than usual, in recognition of the

importance of soils as construction materials, and an additional chapter has been

included to assist the reader in the transition from the study of soils as a material

to the related topic of soil mechanics. Extensive references to all relevant British

and other Standards are made throughout the book.
