"Principles of Pavement Engineering" offers sound engineering understanding to those learning, practicing or researching in this field. It is concerned with the basic principles underlying material behavior, pavement design and maintenance, and will allow the reader to move beyond a mere following of design standards and become able to tackle problems outside the scope of such requirements. This book concentrates on principles rather than current (and therefore transient) standards. It cuts across the subjects of asphalt and concrete. It includes both new pavement design and maintenance. It includes genuine assistance to engineers in non-standard design cases.In an industry responsible for the building and maintenance of so much of the world's transportation infrastructure, it is essential that correct design and construction principles are followed. This includes a realistic assessment of the uncertainty inherent in pavement construction, a balancing of risk and reward, a consideration of the 'bigger picture' i.e. the consequences of pavement deterioration. "Principles of Pavement Engineering" guides the reader through many of these key design and construction issues.This book covers all types of pavement material and construction techniques and concentrates on the fundamentals of performance. It is based on recent research and the practicalities of pavement design, particularly rehabilitation design - a subject for which official guidance is generally weak. The author introduces the 'calculation approaches' which challenge conventional thought; design is presented as an indeterminate subject and pavement rehabilitation is covered as a serious topic in its own right. This book is written for practicing engineers who are faced with practical design issues for which current manuals and standards are insufficient. By extension, it is also suited to those still in training, on masters courses or carrying out doctoral research, and forms an essential background to those less directly involved.
