CONTROL OF EROSION

Control de erosión = Contrôle de l'érosion

This compendium is a product of a 3-year project to enhance rural transportation in developing countries by providing improved access to existing information on the planning, design, construction and maintenance of low-volume roads. The compendium presents erosion-control methods that have been used under different conditions throughout the world. The texts in the compendium provide solutions to many of the problems associated with erosion control and also expand upon erosion problems particular to the tropics and to mountainous and desert terrain. The 11 texts in the compendium that have been reprinted in full or in excerpted portions are: Guidelines for Erosion and Sediment Control in Highway Construction (American Association of State Highway Officials, 1973); Principles of Highway Drainage and Erosion Control (Purdue University, 1962); Control of Erosion on Highways (PTRC, 1975); Protecting Steep Construction Slopes Against Water Erosion (Highway Research Board, 1967); The Use and Control of Vegetation on Roads and Airfields Overseas (Road Research Laboratory, U.K., 1961); Erosion-Proofing Drainage Channels (Journal of Soil and Water Conservation, March-April 1973); Suggestions for Temporary Erosion and Siltation Control Measures (U.S. Federal Highway Administration, 1973); Impacts of High-Intensity Rainstorms on Low-Volume Roads and Adjacent Land (Transportation Research Board, 1975); Road Geotechnics in Hot Deserts (Journal of the Institution of Highway Engineers, October 1976); Observations on the Causes of Bridge Damage in Pennsylvania and New York Due to Hurricane Agnes (Highway Research Board, 1973); and Guide to Bridge Hydraulics (Roads and Transportation Association of Canada, 1973).
