Highway Engineering Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality

Athanassios Nikolaides, "Highway Engineering: Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality"
English | ISBN: 146657996X | 2015 | 924 pages | PDF | 57 MB

An International Textbook, from A to Z

Highway 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 authors 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 roadworks
Aggregates for unbound, hydraulically bound materials, and bituminous mixtures
Bitumen and bituminous binders
Laboratory tests and properties of paving bitumen and bitumen emulsion
Hot and cold bituminous mixtures
Fundamental mechanical properties of bituminous mixtures and testing
Production, transportation, laying, and compaction of bituminous mixtures
Quality control and acceptance of bituminous mixtures
Methods for determining stresses and strains in pavements
Pavement design and construction
Thickness design methodologies for flexible and rigid pavements
Pavement maintenance
Rehabilitation and strengthening
Pavement evaluation
Equipment for measuring surface and structural characteristics
Pavement management
Pavement recycling

Written 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.
