**Construction Materials**

**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.

Information on latest research in materials is very important for construction technology and design of structures.

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.
