Materials Science in Construction 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.It is also vitally important to grasp the chemical differences and phases that exist in ferrous alloys, namely steels and cast irons; the ironairon carbide diagram, commonly known as the FeaFe3C phase diagram, provides the basis foranbsp;...
