The application of a particular building materials are governed by the characteristics and various properties of that building materials.
The properties may be classified into :
1. Physical
2. Mechanical
3. Chemical
4. Magnetic
5. Electrical etc.

Out of all such properties, physical properties and mechanical properties are particularly very important to a Construction Engineer
