Materials engineering has emerged as an identifiable professional practice within civil engineering in the past few years. Although materials engineering is not new, the concept that this practice is enough specialized to merit individual attention as a sub-discipline of civil engineering has only recently been recognized. ASCE's Technical Activities Committee formed the Materials Engineering (ME) Division in July, 1984. The papers contained in these Proceedings are the first to be presented at a session sponsored by this new ME Division. Their topic is Developments in New and Existing Materials. A wide variety of subjects are addressed including polymer impregnation, fly ash and clay stabilization, tensile fracture and fatigue of cement stabilized soil, and rigid pavement rehabilitation.

Subject Headings: Materials engineering | Soil cement | Soil stabilization | Concrete pavements | Professional practice | Polymer | Synthetic materials | Fly ash
