Construction Materials section is primarily concerned with the development of new or improved materials for constructing Civil Engineering structures, also involved in design of materials and methods to repair existing structures that may be damaged due to certain reasons.
Cement, Concrete and steel are the most common materials used in construction. Bitumen, Asphalt, Timber, Aluminium, ceramic, glass, PVC and Copper etc are also used for additional works.
It is very important to know the properties of the materials before using them. The commonly used materials for construction should be tested for mechanical properties, thermal properties, chemical properties and electrical properties. Material properties should conform to the standards adopted in the country e.g., ASTM, AASHTO, British Standards (BS) or Eurocode etc.
The links on this page will lead you to get information about Concrete, Cement, Timber, Steel, Ceramic, Glass and Plastics etc.
