In the second edition of Materials for Civil and Construction Engineers, Michael S. Mamlouk and John P. Zaniewski provide a current and comprehensive overview of the materials used by civil and construction engineers. Focusing on practical applications, the authors present the important characteristics of these materials, their uses, and their properties.
“This is one of the most comprehensive and up to date CE materials textbooks available.”
-Jose Weissmann, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT SAN ANTONIO
“This book is very well written and easy to follow. The contents of aggregates, Portland cement concrete, and asphalt binders and asphalt mixtures are exactly what I need for teaching my transportation materials course.”
