This text presents the most traditional and familiar structural materials: steel, concrete, masonry, timber and glass. Material data are presented, followed by a summary of specific manufacturing techniques and key material characteristics.

The Essential Knowledge Series is a core resource (primarily for structural engineering students but a useful refresher for more senior engineers) covering fundamental topics from structural materials to computer analysis.
