An International Textbook, from A to Z

Highway Engineering: Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality covers the basic principles of pavement management, highlights recent advancements, and details the latest industry standards and techniques in the global market. Utilizing the author’s more than 30 years of teaching, researching, and consulting experience, this text focuses on the design, construction, maintenance, and management of pavements for roads and highways, and covers the main topics in highway engineering. The author integrates pavement materials, material testing for acceptability and quality assurance, asphalt mix design, flexible and rigid pavement design, construction, maintenance and strengthening procedures, quality control of production and acceptance of asphalts, pavement evaluation, asphalt plants, and pavement recycling. He also includes both European and American (ASTM and AASHTO) standards and practice, and is extensively illustrated with references, tables, graphs, charts, and photographs.

The book contains 18 chapters that cover:

  • Soils for roadworks
  • Aggregates for unbound, hydraulically bound materials, and bituminous mixtures
  • Bitumen and bituminous binders
  • Laboratory tests and properties of paving bitumen and bitumen emulsion
  • Hot and cold bituminous mixtures
  • Fundamental mechanical properties of bituminous mixtures and testing
  • Production, transportation, laying, and compaction of bituminous mixtures
  • Quality control and acceptance of bituminous mixtures
  • Methods for determining stresses and strains in pavements
  • Pavement design and construction
  • Thickness design methodologies for flexible and rigid pavements
  • Pavement maintenance
  • Rehabilitation and strengthening
  • Pavement evaluation
  • Equipment for measuring surface and structural characteristics
  • Pavement management
  • Pavement recycling

Written for civil engineering students and engineers engaged in highway projects or laboratory testing, Highway Engineering: Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality covers pavement engineering comprehensively as a textbook for undergraduates and graduates, and a valuable reference for practicing professionals.

About the Author:

Dr. Athanassios Nikolaides is a professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, and director of the Highway Engineering Laboratory in the Department of Civil Engineering. He has published more than 90 papers in journals and conference proceedings, presented more than 40 additional papers at various seminars, and published three books in Greek. He is a member of the editorial advisory panel of the ICE (UK) Journal of Construction Materials, and the founder and president of the International Conference on Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements and has served as a consultant to several organizations and corporations in Greece, Europe, and Indonesia.

Review:

 

"... a complete book covering all aspects of road pavements –from constituent materials, to design and maintenance; management to recycling. ... a valuable resource for civil engineering students as well as researchers and practitioners working in asphalt and pavement engineering. As a bonus, readers will also find in-depth explanations of major standards from the USA, UK, EUROPE and Australia on material characterization, design, and management."
Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers

"The author has crafted this book to serve as a "one-stop centre" for any information related to highway engineering. It begins with raw materials for asphalt, mix design, asphalt production, construction and maintenance. This book tells all and is beneficial to academics and practising engineers as well."
―Professor Dr. Meor Othman Hamzah, Universiti Sains Malaysia

"This is a great book. It combines state-of-the art scientific knowledge with practical easy-to-use guidelines for highway engineers."
―Professor Ezio Santagata, Politecnico di Torino, Italy

"The author has developed a very good work. He has compared the main standards, as ASTM, AASHTO, European Standards. This book presents the state of the art of pavements and I really recommend its use to the graduate and post-graduate course."
―Rita Moura Fortes, UFAM – Universidade Federal do Amazonas (Amazonas Federal University), Brazil

"The book provides a golden thread linking the complete highway engineering story from material origin and properties ultimately to pavement management and recycling and everything in between – a total picture for the dedicated student."
―Professor Wynand J vd M Steyn, University of Pretoria, South Africa

"This new book is a useful addition to the library of books in english about highway engineering, the extensive coverage of which is all highly relevant and should make it a favourite with most highway engineers and engineering students. ...Having adjacent sections on the European, American and/or Australian standards and techniques for various aspects makes it very useful to students looking at different approaches, to practising engineers working in different countries, and to researchers looking to extend the knowledge from existing practice.
―Dr J C (Cliff) Nicholls, TRL Limited, UK

"The most impressive section of the book to my mind, which is not covered in nearly as much depth in other texts, is the treatment of bituminous materials... in particular their characteristics, appropriate methods to characterize their performance in the laboratory, and means of building and maintaining a road using these materials. In addition the book provides a comprehensive coverage of the constituent layers of a road pavement, the material properties of these layers and associated laboratory tests required to characterize these. The different types of methods appropriate to structural design are covered nicely, as are methods of recycling and maintenance."
―Michael Burrow, Senior Lecturer, University of Birmingham, UK
