The Construction Materials Science Manual explains the science behind the properties and behaviour of construction's most fundamental materials (metals, cement and concrete, polymers, timber, bricks and blocks, glass and plaster). In particular, the critical factors affecting in-situ materials are examined, such as deterioration and the behaviour and durability of materials under performance. An accessible, easy-to-follow approach makes this book ideal for all diploma and undergraduate students on construction-related courses taking a module in construction materials. *Covers the common materials used in construction providing students with the information they need to specify materials when designing a project *Provides the right amount of science needed for construction students to understand how materials will behave and why *Discusses the environmental impact of extraction, production and use of materials, giving the student a broader perspective and appreciation of working practice
