Thickness design for concrete highway and street pavements Unknown Binding – January 1, See all formats and editions Hide other formats and editions The Amazon Book ReviewManufacturer: Portland Cement Association. Concrete pavements have been used for highways, airports, streets, local roads, parking lots, industrial facilities, and other types of infrastructure. When properly designed and built out of durable materials, concrete pavements can provide many decades of service with little or no maintenance. Concrete pavements have been used for highways, airports, streets, local roads, parking lots, industrial facilities, and other types of infrastructure. When properly designed and built out of durable materials, concrete pavements can provide many decades of . The book pays frequent reference to the Department of Transport’s Design Manual for Roads and Bridges and 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.
As concrete pavements are more complex than they seem, and the costs of mistakes or of over-design can be high, this is a valuable book for engineers in both the public and private sectors. Preview. 'Highways' is a comprehensive textbook on all aspects of road engineering. This new edition, written by a team of acknowledged experts in the field, teams up with 'Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering' to become a worthy successor to O'Flaherty's classic 'Highway Engineering' set. This book contains two pavement maintenance manuals intended for use by highway maintenance agencies and contracted maintenance firms in the field and in the office. Each is a compendium of good practices for portland cement concrete (PCC) joint resealing and partial-depth spall repair, respectively, stemming from two Strategic Highway.

Flexible pavements typically consist of asphalt concrete placed over granular base/subbase layers supported by the compacted soil, referred to as the subgrade. Some asphalt-paved sur- faces consist of a simple bituminous surface treatment (BST), while other, lighter-duty asphalt-surfaced pavements are too thin, to be considered as flexible.
