  • A Dictionary of Civil Engineering
    by D.N Ghose


Group A

Introduction to civil engineering materials-stone, timber, cement, steel, plastics, concrete. Engineering properties of materials-density, strength (compressive, tensile, flexural, shear, etc.), modulus of elasticity, fatigue, limit, creep, shrinkage, relaxation, permeability, fire resistance. Materials and environment-effect of environment on materials. Classification of environ­ment-temperature, humidity, rain, fire.

Steel: Manufacture, rolled sections, properties, classifications.

Cement: Manufacture-wet and dry processes, constituents and constitution, properties-setting, strength, durability, classification-high early strength, low alkali, rapid hardening.

Concrete: Constituents-coarse and fine aggregates, cement, water. Mineral admixtures-fly ash, blast furnace, slag, silica fume. Chemical admixtures-air entraining, set retarding and accelerating, super plasticising. Fresh concrete-workability, air content, segregation. Hardened concrete-strength, hardness, modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture. Special concretes-fibre, reinforced, shortcrete, underwater, high strength. Deterioration and durability-reinforcement, corrosion, carbonation, alkali ­aggregate reaction.

Group B

Bricks: Manufacture, classification. Other materials. Standardization and standards-need to have standards and some common international standards. Relevant Indian standards (commonly used standards to be listed with brief description). Quality control. Non-destructive testing and evaluation.

Construction practices: Standards relevant to quality control at site. Safety issues. Quantities and estimation. Tender document. Contracts-unit rate, lumpsum, turnkey. Project management-CPM, PERT, bar charts, pie diagrams, escalation, depreciation.
