Construction Materials Fourth Edition by Peter Domone and John Illston.
This book is an updated and extended version of the third edition, which was published in 2001, This has proved to be as popular and successful as the rst two editions.
But the continuing advances in construction materials technology and uses, not least in the many factors and issues relating to the Sustainability of construction, have resulted in the need for this new fourth edition.
with the addition of three further materials – bituminous materials, masonry and bre composites – with a separate part degree courses building construction materials civil and engineering structural engineering design steel metals machine engineering.
This new edition has been expanded to cover recent developments such as the use of glass as a structural material , reecting its increasing use as a structural material.
It also now examines the contribution that material selection makes to sustainable construction practice, considering the availability of raw materials, production, recycling and reuse, which all contribute to the life cycle assessment of structures.
“each section now also contains an extra chapter on recycling”.
As well as being brought up-to-date with current usage and performance standards, which compares the mechanical properties of all the materials and considers some of the factors relating to their selection for use and the consequences for society and the environment.
As with the previous editions, the book is addressed primarily to students taking courses in civil or structural engineering, where there is a continuing need for a unied treatment of the kind that we have again attempted.
Some of the civil engineering and architecture schools, however, now have less dedicated courses in materials and a significant part of the required materials knowledge is provided within other courses. A textbook such as this will hence not only be useful as a reference book for a number of these courses, but will also be helpful in providing a unified perspective to students learning about materials under these conditions.
