Build Roads That Stand Up to Any Weather Condition

The first book dedicated solely to this important topic, Cold Regions Pavement Engineering helps ensure that road quality is not compromised by cold temperatures and other environmental factors.

Using the latest research from the United States, Canada, and Europe, the authors supply all the information needed to make wise decisions in situations where freezing temperatures, unstable soil, precipitation, ice, and small populations are complicating factors, along with limited funding-a common problem when designing roads in cold regions. Posing specific design and maintenance problems encountered in the field, the authors present the techniques and materials to solve them.

Cold Regions Pavement Engineering is a long-needed resource.

Inside:

  • Design methodologies and maintenance techniques
  • Key information on material selection
  • Calculations for proper structural design
  • Strategies for constructing new roads
  • Advice in rehabilitating old or damaged surfaces
  • Case studies of problems and their solutions

      Cold Regions Pavement Engineering includes:• Pavement Materials and Performance • Investigation and Testing o Calculation of Engineering Parameters • Design Considerations • Mix and Pavement Design • Maintenance and Rehabilitation • Pavements on Permafrost

Synopsis:

The first comprehensive sourcebook on pavement engineering design and maintenance techniques in cold regions

Cold region pavements are subject to distress by climate and other environmental factors. Cold Regions Pavement Engineering prepares you to make the right decisions in areas where freezing temperatures, unstable soils, snow and ice, sparse population, and often limited funds dictate the design and maintenance of pavement structures.

Filled with the latest research and proven techniques from the United States, Canada, and Northern Europe, the book examines cutting-edge design and maintenance methodologies…the selection of optimal pavement materials… calculations of proper structural design…construction and rehabilitation strategies, including economic limitations…investigation and testing…mix designs…and pavements on permafrost. This essential engineering tool also features a wealth of in-depth domestic and international case studies, a wide range of solved examples and problems, and helpful chapter summaries.
