This publication contains papers presented at the symposium of the same name, held in San Antonio, Texas, on 4 December 1990. The purpose of the symposium was to provide a forum for the research activities currently underway in the area of polymer modified asphalt binders. The papers discuss the use of elastomers such as styrene block copolymers, latex rubber, and various plastomers that include ethylene vinyl acetate and polyethylene. The papers are basically divided into two categories: (1) laboratory studies of polymer modified asphalt binders for hot mix asphalt, and (2) emulsions and full scale field experiments which explore construction aspects of polymer modified asphalt pavements. An Author Index and a Subject Index are provided.
