STATE-OF-THE ART GUIDELINE MANUAL FOR DESIGN, QUALITY CONTROL, AND CONSTRUCTION OF SULFUR-EXTENDED-ASPHALT (SEA) PAVEMENTS

Sulfur-Extended-Asphalt (SEA) binders save asphalt, a potential energy source, by replacing some asphalt in conventional flexible pavement mixes with sulfur. These new binders appear to possess properties comparable to asphalt. The guideline manual provides the highway community in both public and private organizations with the most definitive state-of-the-art guidelines extant for using these binders. Information on design, construction, quality control, equipment, mixing plants, specifications, and safety is included. Administrators and professionals in pavement construction, design, maintenance, and materials testing will be the personnel who are most interested in the manual.
