One of the basic needs of human beings is shelter. Housing fulfills this requirement. It is an important indicator of the level of a country’s social program. Housing involves the construction of buildings with suitable building materials and by following certain construction practices depending on the location. Buildings are constructed not only for housing purposes but also for different purposes such as schools, hospitals, industries, etc. Thus, the knowledge of building construction materials and building construction techniques are essential for a civil engineer. A couple of courses are available, which are offered in B.E/B.Tech. programs in universities – Building Materials and Building Construction. Recently, several universities combined these courses into a single course to provide continuous and comprehensive material. This book is one which deals with materials and construction techniques needed for buildings.
