A comprehensive, state-of-the-state-of-the-art road design and materials
Ranging from the Superpave ™, the data generated by the long-term pavement performance (LTPP) project, recently published the reaction mechanism empirical pavement design guidance NCHRP1-37A research and development and innovation, experienced a significant development in the field of pavement engineering. Pavement design and materials for students is a practical reference for engineers and practical experience, to explore various aspects of pavement engineering, including materials, analysis, design, evaluation, and economic analysis.
Historically, many of the technology has been used in many jurisdictions to deal with the road surface. This book focuses on the most comprehensive and current applicable technology.
