DEStech Publications, Inc. announces the publication of Asphalt Paving Technology 2011, edited by Dr. Eugene Skok.
This volume, in both print and electronic (CD-ROM) form, comprises original and never-before published research on asphalt paving, including sustainable mix formulations (with recycled asphalt and shingle content), binder performance, data on cracking and wear, as well as novel testing protocols emerging from the "Guide for the Mechanistic and Empirical Design of New and Rehabilitated Pavement" (MEPDG). The technical information in the book was presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Asphalt Paving Technologists.
Some of the highlights of the book include:
- New advances in hot- and warm-mix formulations and processing
- Recent test protocols and evaluation data for asphalt wear
- Performance data for asphalt with recycled content
- Accompanying CD contains all text, fully-searchable
