Summary
  • Provides a comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of all aspects of highway development and engineering. Its three sections range from consideration of socioeconomic and environmental factors to design, construction, maintenance, and management.
  • Beginning with financing, access management, environmental impacts, road safety, and noise, this book explores the expanded responsibilities of the modern highway engineer as well as the increasing trend toward privatization of project development and financing. The next section considers technical issues in highway and pavement engineering, including materials, new mechanistic-empirical design approaches, new closed-form solutions for backcalculation, and deflection and stress computation in multi-slab systems. Rounding out the discussion, the final section examines construction, management, performance evaluation including nondestructive testing, and a chapter devoted to highway asset management.
