ASPHALT PAVEMENT ENGINEERING

COMPLETE INFORMATION IS GIVEN ON ALL TYPES OF ASPHALT PAVEMENTS - INCLUDING THE LATEST DESIGN CRITERIA AND CONSTRUCTION METHODS - SO THAT THE READER WILL BE ABLE TO DESIGN AN ASPHALT PAVEMENT FOR ANY LOADING OR TRAFFIC SITUATION. THE MOST RECENT RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE NATIONAL ASPHALT PAVEMENT ASSOCIATION, THE ASPHALT INSTITUTE, AND STATE HIGHWAY DEPARTMENTS ARE INCLUDED TO ASSIST THE READER IN MAKING DESIGN DECISIONS. SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE PERFORMANCE DATA AS RELATED TO PAVEMENT STRUCTURE THICKNESSES FOR A COMPLETE RANGE OF REPETITIVE LOADINGS, AN ECONOMICAL AND PROVEN METHOD OF EXTENDING THE USEFUL LIFE OF ASPHALTIC CONCRETE PAVEMENTS BY AN EMULSION OF OILS AND RESINS, AND A DISCUSSION OF THE EFFECT OF THE CHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF ASPHALT CEMENTS UPON QUALITY AND DURABILITY WHEN ANALYZED BY THE MALTENE DISTRIBUTION PARAMETER. THE BOOK DESCRIBES THE VARIOUS TYPES OF ASPHALT PAVEMENTS AND GIVES SPECIFICATIONS FOR THEM. IT DISCUSSES THE PRODUCTION GRADATION, AND QUALITY OF MINERAL AGGREGATES USED IN THE VARIOUS TYPES OF ASPHALT PAVEMENTS AND DESCRIBES THE NECESSARY PROPERTIES OF AN ASPHALT CONCRETE MIXTURE. IT DESCRIBES AND ILLUSTRATES IN DETAIL DESIGN PROCEDURES AND CONSTRUCTION METHODS FOR SPECIFIC PAVING SITUATIONS. MANY USEFUL TABLES AND A SERIES OF DESIGN PROBLEMS COVERING ALL TYPES OF ASPHALT PAVEMENTS ARE INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
