Master the principles, analysis, and design in pavement engineering

This student-friendly textbook offers comprehensive coverage of pavement design and highways. Written by two seasoned civil engineering educators, the book contains precise explanations of traditional and computerized mechanistic design methods along with detailed examples of real-world pavement and highway projects. Pavement Design: Materials, Analysis, and Highways shows, step by step, how to apply the latest, software-based AASHTOWare Pavement Mechanistic-Empirical Design method. Each design topic is covered in separate, modular chapters, enabling you to tailor a course of study. Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) sample questions are also provided in each chapter.

Coverage includes:
  • Stress-strain in pavement
  • Soils, aggregates, asphalt, and portland cement concrete
  • Traffic analysis for pavement design
  • Distresses and distress-prediction models in flexible and rigid pavement
  • Flexible and rigid pavement design by AASHTO 1993 and AASHTOWare
  • Overlay and drainage design
  • Sustainable and rehabilitation pavement design, pavement management, and recycling
  • Geometric design of highways
