View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Concrete block pavement has recently emerged as a major new form of construction both for landscaping where aesthetics are of prime concern and for pavements carrying traffic ranging from cars and trucks to the heaviest of industrial loads. Since the 1960s extensive research into this form of paving has been conducted worldwide. For the first time this information is brought together in a form that benefits the practising civil or municipal engineer, architect or landscaper. Written by a recognized authority in the field, the book summarizes the history of segmental paving and discusses both the advantages and limitations of this form of construction. The wide range of block pavement applications is illustrated by reference to projects around the world. The technology of block paving is then systematically outlined and procedures for the design of roads, municipal applications and industrial pavements are presented and critically evaluated. These procedures are supported by specifications for the materials and methods of installation. Detailed descriptions of construction and maintenance techniques are given. The three main features that this book provides are: a wide ranging review of research into the in-service of block pavements; comprehensive summary of design procedures for pedestrian areas, roads, airports and industrial pavements; illustrations of a range of block paving applications around the world.
