Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This book provides complete coverage of the main construction materials for undergraduate students on civil engineering and other construction courses. It creates an understanding of materials and how they perform through a knowledge of their chemical and physical structure, leading to an ability to judge their behaviour in service in construction. Descriptions of important properties are related back to the structure and forward to basic practical considerations.
