Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A comprehensive, state-of-the-art resource on pavement design and materials

With innovations ranging from the advent of Superpave, the data generated by the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) project, to the recent release of the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide developed under NCHRP Study 1-37A, the field of pavement engineering is experiencing significant development. Pavement Design and Materials is a practical reference for both students and practicing engineers that explores all the aspects of pavement engineering, including materials, analysis, design, evaluation, and economic analysis.

Historically, numerous techniques have been applied by a multitude of jurisdictions dealing with roadway pavements. This book focuses on the best-established, currently applicable techniques available.

Pavement Design and Materials offers complete coverage of:

  • The characterization of traffic input

  • The characterization of pavement bases/subgrades and aggregates

  • Asphalt binder and asphalt concrete characterization

  • Portland cement and concrete characterization

  • Analysis of flexible and rigid pavements

  • Pavement evaluation

  • Environmental effects on pavements

  • The design of flexible and rigid pavements

  • Pavement rehabilitation

  • Economic analysis of alternative pavement designs

The coverage is accompanied by suggestions for software for implementing various analytical techniques described in these chapters. These tools are easily accessible through the book's companion Web site, which is constantly updated to ensure that the reader finds the most up-to-date software available.

Book News Annotation:

Papagiannakis (civil and environmental engineering, U. of Texas-San Antonio) and Masad (civil engineering, Texas A&M U.) present a textbook for undergraduate and beginning graduate engineering students that incorporates new materials and data recently released from large-scale and long-term research projects. They cover pavement materials, analysis, design, evaluation, and economics of asphalt and portland concrete roadways. Practicing engineers, they suggest, might also find the volume useful as a reference. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Pavement is the composite layers of engineered materials used to build up and coat the surface of any road or highway. The term connotes materials that are both strong and durable-as well as economical. Pavement engineering usually com-promises the two-fold phases of design (the geometrical and quantitative analysis and design of the road surface) and materials (the selection and understanding of the major types of pavement materials available for road surfacing, including con-crete and asphalt-based materials.
