This book contains lengthy discussion of pavement sealers and sealing and pavement rehabilitation. Case study maintenance strategies, cost effectiveness, and the latest technologies--bitumen emulsions, natural asphalt sealers, and semi-rigid surfaces--of pavement sealers are discussed. The various aspects of joint sealers--joint design and behavior, consequences of and types of sealant failure, are mentioned. Considerable attention is given to rejuventors- crack filling, reclaimte and cold and hot mix patching--and surface treatment--their particle size, shape, grading, and density as well as abrasion and skid resistance. Also, there is a discussion of stripping (the removal of the bitumen binder from the aggregate leading to the dislodgement of the aggregate from the bituminous pavement), specifications and tests for binder in seal coat construction, nature and techniques of skid resistance, grooving, open graded friction courses, cold planing (milling), recycling, and pavement drainage. The section on rehabilitation focuses on overlays and their interlayers.
