Highway Engineering : Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality Hardback
An International Textbook, from A to ZHighway Engineering: Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality covers the basic principles of pavement management, highlights recent advancements, and details the latest industry standards and techniques in the global market.
Utilizing the author's more than 30 years of teaching, researching, and consulting experience, this text focuses on the design, construction, maintenance, and management of pavements for roads and highways, and covers the main topics in highway engineering.
The author integrates pavement materials, material testing for acceptability and quality assurance, asphalt mix design, flexible and rigid pavement design, construction, maintenance and strengthening procedures, quality control of production and acceptance of asphalts, pavement evaluation, asphalt plants, and pavement recycling.
He also includes both European and American (ASTM and AASHTO) standards and practice, and is extensively illustrated with references, tables, graphs, charts, and photographs. The book contains 18 chapters that cover:Soils for roadworksAggregates for unbound, hydraulically bound materials, and bituminous mixturesBitumen and bituminous bindersLaboratory tests and properties of paving bitumen and bitumen emulsionHot and cold bituminous mixturesFundamental mechanical properties of bituminous mixtures and testingProduction, transportation, laying, and compaction of bituminous mixturesQuality control and acceptance of bituminous mixturesMethods for determining stresses and strains in pavementsPavement design and constructionThickness design methodologies for flexible and rigid pavementsPavement maintenanceRehabilitation and strengtheningPavement evaluationEquipment for measuring surface and structural characteristicsPavement managementPavement recyclingWritten for civil engineering students and engineers engaged in highway projects or laboratory testing, Highway Engineering: Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality covers pavement engineering comprehensively as a textbook for undergraduates and graduates, and a valuable reference for practicing professionals.
