Introduction to Cold Regions Pavement Engineering

Cold Regions Pavement Engineering book by Guy DorE and Hannele Zubeck was recently published by the ASCE Press and McGraw-Hill. It prepares engineers to make right decisions in areas, where freezing temperatures, snow and ice, unstable soils, sparse population, long road mileage and often limited funds dictate design and maintenance actions on pavement structures. The book aimed to practicing Civil Engineers covers the unique environment, performance challenges, testing, design, management and rehabilitation of cold regions pavements including permafrost areas. Combining the latest research and proved techniques from the Northern United States, Canada and the Northern Europe, this is the first complete reference for all pavement projects in cold regions. This invited paper introduces the reader to the issues presented in the book.
