Martin Rogers ... 296 pages - Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell; (June, 2008) ... Language: English - AmazonSIN: B000VZSR8G.

This book provides an introduction to highway engineering for students on degree and diploma courses in civil engineering. It moves in a logical sequence from the planning and economic justification for a highway, through the geometric design and traffic analysis of highway links and intersections, to the design and maintenance of both flexible and rigid pavements.

Existing texts have tended to concentrate purely on highway planning and analysis, or on pavement design and maintenance aspects of highway engineering. As a result, the standard has tended to be too advanced for students studying the subject for the first time. This textbook covers the basic ground in both areas. It features worked examples and case studies as an aid to understanding individual topics and aims to provide the student with a solid, practically based foundation for the topic of highway engineering, thus providing a gateway to the more advanced and specialised texts.

    Modern highway engineering reflects an integrated view of a road system's entire lifecycle, including any potential environmental impacts, and seeks to develop a sustainable infrastructure through careful planning and active management. This trend is not limited to developed nations, but is recognized across the globe. Edited by renowned authority T.F. Fwa, The Handbook of Highway Engineering provides a comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of all aspects of highway development and engineering. Its three sections range from consideration of socio-economic and environmental factors to design, construction, maintenance, and management. Beginning with financing, access management, environmental impacts, road safety, and noise, the 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, and new closed-form solutions for backcalculation as well as 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. Featuring contributions from eminent experts representing eight countries on four continents, The Handbook of Highway Engineering supplies all of the tools needed to manage the entire integrated process of modern highway development and engineering.

    Peter C. Taylor ... 215 pages - Publisher: CRC Press; 1st edition (September, 2013) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0415779529 - ISBN-13: 978-0415779524 ...

    Curing is one of those activities that every civil engineer and construction worker has heard of, but in reality does not worry about much. In practice, curing is often low on the list of priorities on the construction site, particularly when budgets and timelines are under pressure. Yet the increasing demands being placed on concrete mixtures also mean that they are less forgiving than in the past. Therefore, any activity that will help improve hydration and so performance, while reducing the risk of cracking, is becoming more important. Curing Concrete explains exactly why curing is so important and shows you how to best do it. The book covers: The fundamentals behind hydration + How curing affects the properties of concrete, improving its long-term performance + What curing technologies and techniques you can use for different applications + How to effectively specify, provide, and measure curing in a project. The author also gives numerous examples of how curing—or a lack of it—has affected concrete performance in real-world situations. These include examples from hot and cold climates, as well as examples related to high-performance concrete, performance parameters, and specifications and testing. Written for construction professionals who want to ensure the quality and longevity of their concrete structures, this book demonstrates that curing is well worth the effort and cost.

    Guy Doré, Hannele K. Zubeck ... 432 pages - Publisher: McGraw-Hill; 1st edition (December, 2008) ... Language: English - ISBN-10: 0071600884 - ISBN-13: 978-0071600880 ...

    The first book dedicated solely to this important topic, Cold Regions Pavement Engineering helps ensure that road quality is not compromised by cold temperatures and other environmental factors. Using the latest research from the United States, Canada, and Europe, the authors supply all the information needed to make wise decisions in situations where freezing temperatures, unstable soil, precipitation, ice, and small populations are complicating factors, along with limited funding-a common problem when designing roads in cold regions. Posing specific design and maintenance problems encountered in the field, the authors present the techniques and materials to solve them. Cold Regions Pavement Engineering is a long-needed resource. Inside: Design methodologies and maintenance techniques * Key information on material selection * Calculations for proper structural design * Strategies for constructing new roads * Advice in rehabilitating old or damaged surfaces * Case studies of problems and their solutions. Cold Regions Pavement Engineering includes: • Pavement Materials and Performance • Investigation and Testing o Calculation of Engineering Parameters • Design Considerations • Mix and Pavement Design • Maintenance and Rehabilitation • Pavements on Permafrost

    Nicholas J. Garber, Lester A. Hoel ... 1248 pages - Publisher: Cengage Learning; 4th edition (2008)... Language: English  - ISBN-10: 0495082503 - ISBN-13: 978-0495082507 ...

    The new edition of Garber and Hoel's best-selling text focuses on giving students insight into all facets of traffic and highway engineering. Students generally come to this course with little knowledge or understanding of the importance of transportation, much less of the extensive career opportunities within the field. Transportation is an extremely broad field, and courses must either cover all transportation modes or focus on specifics. While many topics can be covered with a survey approach, this often lacks sufficient depth and students leave the course without a full understanding of any of the fields. This text focuses exclusively on traffic and highway engineering beginning with a discussion of the pivotal role transportation plays in our society, including employment opportunities, historical impact, and the impact of transportation on our daily lives. This approach gives students a sense of what the field is about as well as an opportunity to consider some of its challenges. Later chapters focus on specific issues facing transportation engineers. The text uses pedagogical tools such as worked problems, diagrams and tables, reference material, and realistic examples to demonstrate how the material is applied.
