Rogers: Highway Engineering

This book provides an introduction to highway engineering for students on degree and diploma courses in civil engineering. It moves in a logical sequence from the planning and economic justification for a highway, through the geometric design and traffic analysis of highway links and intersections, to the design and maintenance of both flexible and rigid pavements.


Existing texts have tended to concentrate purely on highway planning and analysis, or on pavement design and maintenance aspects of highway engineering. As a result, the standard has tended to be too advanced for students studying the subject for the first time. This textbook covers the basic ground in both areas. It features worked examples and case studies as an aid to understanding individual topics and aims to provide the student with a solid, practically based foundation for the topic of highway engineering, thus providing a gateway to the more advanced and specialised texts.
