The aim of compiling this book has been to give a working knowledge of the important details of civil construction, materials used in civil engineering, including the source of raw materials, their characteristics, the process of manufacture, their defects, structure, and uses in the industry, and the basics of surveying and leveling and several other major topics in civil engineering to all engineering students in a systematic way. Th e-book is written in a clear and easy-to-read style, presenting fundamentals of surveying at a level that can be quickly grasped by a beginner. The basic surveying topics deal with modern instruments such as total station, GPS, and digital levels, reflecting modern field procedures. A book on a technical subject is hardly complete without illustrations, and one of the special aims of this book is to present a number of diagrams, which are presented mainly with a view to emphasize the important features of the manufacture, so as not to burden the students with unimportant details. Th e first part of the book consists of 11 chapters and gives a description of all the materials used for different constructions in the field of civil engineering and the processes involved in the manufacture of the same.
