Highway Engineering : Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality

Highway Engineering: Pavements, Materials and Control of Quality 

Nikolaides,

Preference :

Highway engineering is the term that replaced the traditional term road engineering used in the past, after the introduction of modern highways. Highway engineering is a vast subject that involves planning, design, construction, maintenance, and management of roads, bridges, and tunnels for the safe and effective transportation of people and goods. This book concentrates on the design, construction, maintenance, and management of pavements for roads/highways. It also includes pavement materials since they are an integral part of pavements. It has been written for graduates, postgraduates as well as practicing engineers and laboratory staff and incorporates the author’s 30 years of involvement in teaching, researching, and practicing the subject of highway engineering.
