Engineering Materials Science: Properties, Uses, Degradation, Remediation
This book examines chemical and physical structure of materials related to degradation and remediation. It looks at mechanical properties and testing of materials, properties of water and water-induced degradation and deterioration, with chapters on moisture effects in buildings and materials, corrosion theory and metal protection. It then explains the behaviour of materials in fires, fire resistance principles and techniques, calculations of flame temperatures, and the removal of heat from flames by nitrogen and other fire-retardant products. It also addresses properties, performance and degradation of masonry materials, plastics, adhesives and sealants, timber and timber products, glass and fibre composites, and metals and alloy elements. Phase diagrams show cooling curves and structure for metals and alloys. Concrete technology is developed in relation to degradation, electro-potential mapping and cathodic protection of reinforced concrete.
The book is fully updated to current British and European Standards.
Readership: Undergraduate and postgraduate students reading building design, materials science, engineering design, structural and mechanical engineering, architecture and metallurgy. Professionals in these areas.
