Construction Materials: Their Nature and Behaviour / Edition 4

Considerable developments have occurred in the twenty first century in the understanding of materials’ behaviour and in their technology and use. The main classes of construction materials – metals, concrete, other ceramics (including bricks and masonry), polymers, fibre composite, bituminous materials and timber – remain, but performance standards have risen and use has been extended. The book now includes new sections and chapters on further developments such as the use of glass as structural material; and in the contribution of the selection of materials to sustainable construction practice, with considerations including the availability of raw materials, production, recycling and reuse, which all contribute to the life cycle assessment of structures. Additionally, each section contains an extra chapter on recycling

This new edition keeps the same successful format of the previous two editions, with a "fundamentals" section followed by a section on each of the major groups of materials. It offers one of the best tutorials to the field for civil and structural engineering students and also for those in building engineering and related disciplines.
