Laboratory Manual on Testing of Engineering Materials

Hamant Sood (Author)

Primarily written for the students of Civil Engineering and practising engineers involved in the testing of building materials, the manual describes in straight-forward and systematic manner the testing of engineering materials. Each test given in the manual outlines the objectives, theory, apparatus requirements, procedures, precautions, questions for discussion and observations and calculations.

For all the tests specified, the procedure is based on the relevant Indian Standard Code of Practice which is the usual accepted method of performing the tests. The manual can be used by students and field engineers for keeping the record of tests performed in the laboratory. Since each test requires a different reference of the Indian Standard Codes, it may not be practically feasible in the field conditions and therefore this manual comes quite handy for these situations.

It will be invaluable and indispensable manual for imparting effective instructions to diploma and under graduate level students as also to field engineers.
