CIV3906 Civil Materials Practice
It is useful if the students have already undertaken CIV2605 and CIV2403 or CIV2901.
This course will involve the student in an investigation of the range of materials commonly used in civil engineering. The characterisation of materials and the need for material parameters for design will be considered. The student will test a range of materials in the laboratory to establish material properties. Presentation and interpretation of test results will also form an important part of the course.
