THIN PAVEMENTS, SURFACE TREATMENTS AND UNBOUND ROADS - LOW COST, LOW VOLUME - HIGH TECH. PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM HELD AT THE WU CONFERENCE CENTRE, UNIVERSITY OF NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA, JUNE 24-25, 1997

Usually the highest proportion of a road's network length is of "low" standard, and consists of thin pavements, surface treated pavements, or unbound roads. These lower class highways and roads are of paramount importance to the regions they serve, and there is a continuing need for research and development in: (a) materials selection, testing and evaluation; (b) pavement design; (c) pavement evaluation; (d) pavement management. These proceedings contain papers from the International Symposium on Thin Pavements, Surface Treatments, and Unbounded Roads, June 1997. Papers were presented by authors from nine countries in five continents. The papers are divided into the following sections: (1) aggregates and materials; (2) laterite, marginal materials, recycled materials; (3) behaviour of materials and structures; (4) design; (5) construction; (6) surface treatments; (7) roads in cold climates; (8) central tire inflation and industrial access roads.
