Asphalt Materials Science and Technology

Asphalt Materials Science and Technology

Speight, James G

Preference :

The use of petroleum is an old art but the petroleum industry and the use of asphalt are essentially a twentieth century industry. The first use of petroleum came over 5000 years ago when it was recognized that the heavier derivatives of petroleum (asphalt) could be used for caulking, as adhesives for jewelry, for construction purposes, as well as for medicinal and other purposes. The facile production of asphalt makes it an ideal choice for the rehabilitation of busy highways and aviation facilities. Whether on the highway or airport, asphalt pavements give the best value for the taxpayer dollar, with the lowest life cycle cost and the highest residual value. Asphalt is one of the indispensable materials of life in America. In fact, 94% of the paved roads in America are surfaced with asphalt. However, asphalt is a complex product that is used with aggregate, as one example, to build roads. To many, asphalt production is an art. This book will close the gap between the wide distribution and use of asphalt and knowledge of its chemical characterization for research and development.
