AASHTOWare Pavement ME Design 2013 v1.3.28 [Size: 560 MB] ... It is a pavement design software, which builds upon the mechanistic-empirical pavement design guide, and expands and improves the features in the accompanying prototype computational software. ME Design supports AASHTO"s Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide, Interim Edition: A Manual of Practice. ME Design is a production-ready software tool to support the day-to-day pavement design functions of public and private pavement engineers. The Pavement ME Deflection Data Analysis and Backcalculation Tools is a standalone software program that can be used to generate backcalculation inputs to the AASHTO Pavement ME Design software for rehabilitation design. The tool is capable of analyzing raw deflection data files obtained from Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) testing devices, backcalculating in-place elastic layer moduli for flexible and rigid pavements and generating inputs for performing rehabilitation design using Pavement ME. It can also be used to perform loss of support analysis and load transfer efficiency (LTE) calculations.

Sponsored by the Low Impact Development Committee of the Urban Water Resources Research Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE Permeable Pavements is a comprehensive resource for the proper design, construction, and maintenance of permeable pavement systems that provide a transportation surface and a best management practice for stormwater and urban runoff. A cornerstone for low impact development (LID) and sustainable site design, permeable pavements are considered a green infrastructure practice. They offer many environmental benefits, from reduced stormwater runoff and improved water quality to better site design and enhanced safety of paved surfaces. Commonly used for walkways, driveways, patios, and low-volume roadways as well as recreational areas, parking lots, and plazas, permeable pavements are appropriate for many different land uses, particularly in highly urbanized locations. This volume synthesizes todayâs knowledge of the technology, drawing from academia, industry, and the engineering and science communities. It presents an overview of typical permeable pavement systems and reviews the design considerations. Detailed design, construction, use, and performance information is provided for porous asphalt, pervious concrete, permeable interlocking concrete pavement, and grid pavements. Fact sheets and checklists help to successfully incorporate permeable pavement systems into design projects. Additional chapters summarize emerging technologies, maintenance considerations, hydrologic design approaches, key components for specification writing, and key areas for additional research. Appendixes include a fact sheet clarifying information on common concerns, as well as data tables summarizing water quality treatment performance and costs. Permeable Pavements is an essential reference for engineers, planners, landscape architects, municipalities, transportation agencies, regulatory agencies, and property owners planning to implement this best management practice for stormwater and urban runoff.  Review: Permeable Pavements presents a comprehensive, 260-page resource on design, construction and maintenance of permeable pavement systems [and] synthesizes diverse materials and practices using this technology with the help of academics, industry, civil and environmental engineers and scientists. The result is a book that can be used on almost every project. The book presents an overview of design considerations common to all permeable pavement systems in the first chapter. Detailed design, construction, use, and performance information follow in separate chapters on porous asphalt, pervious concrete, permeable interlocking concrete pavement, grid pavements and some recent proprietary products. The books extensive use of fact sheets and checklists can be instrumental in design, construction and maintenance by stormwater agencies, designers, contractors and project owners.

This book provides a complete guide to the study, design, construction and management of landslide and slope engineering measures for mountain roads, with an emphasis on low-cost. The geographical focus of the book is on the tropics and sub-tropics, but is also highly relevant to other regions where heavy rain, steep slopes and weak soils and rocks combine to create slope instability. The causes and mechanisms of landslides are described, and the hazards they pose to mountain roads are illustrated. Methods of desk study, field mapping and ground investigation are reviewed and illustrated, with an emphasis on geomorphological and engineering geological techniques. The design and construction of alignments, earthworks, drainage, retaining structures, the stabilization of soil slopes and rock slopes, and the control of erosion on slopes and in rivers and streams are covered. Slope management as part of road maintenance and operation is reviewed, and procedures for risk assessment and works prioritization are described.

Proceedings of the 10th International Conference of Chinese Transportation Professionals (ICCTP 2010), held in Beijing, China, August 4 8, 2010. ICCTP 2010 is jointly hosted by NACOTA and Beijing University of Technology (BJUT) with the sponsorships of the Transportation and Development Institute (T&DI) of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), and Transportation Research Board (TRB) Committee on Transportation in Developing Countries (ABE90). In the last two decades, many large cities in China have experienced rapid urban sprawl, which has been resulted in extensive expansion and motorization of the cities. The threat of increasingly unsustainable urban transportation systems has become a focus of attention as the awareness of the unhealthy interaction between a surging demand for transportation services and the environmental impact of such increases. The goal of this conference, the theme of which is Integrated Transportation Systems: Green, Intelligent, Reliable , is to meet the needs of urban transportation systems in a capacity that is environmentally sound, socially equitable, and economically viable. Some of the topics addressed in this proceedings include: comprehensive transportation planning, traffic safety theory and technology, transportation management, operation technology and systems, and public transportation technology and systems. This proceedings will be valuable to anyone involved in the transportation engineering industry.

The increasing need to make the best use of the existing highway network has led to the widespread application of traffic engineering techniques in most urban areas of the developed world. In response to this growing importance of highway traffic engineering and management, many highway technician, undergraduate civil engineering and specialized higher degree courses include a study of highway traffic engineering. This book is intended to be of use to students on these courses by presenting a set of 33 worked examples in a wide range of highway traffic problems designed to illustrate the principles of highway traffic flow and the practical traffic design of highway elements. The book should also be of value to professional engineers who are looking for an introduction to highway traffic engineering or seeking to update their knowledge on this subject.

Water in and beneath a road pavement has a major impact on the road's performance and its survivability. This book provides a state-of-the-art on the topic of water in pavements and the adjacent ground. It includes coverage of the basic theory; where the water comes from; how it may (or may not) be drained; the effect of temperature on the movement; how movements may be modelled numerically; and the impact that water content has on pavement material and subgrade behaviour. Sections on instrumentation and monitoring are also provided. With increased concerns that road construction may introduce contaminants into the environment, the book also studies environmental aspects of water in roads and their immediate surroundings by describing the leaching action of pavement water; the opportunities for the pavement to sorb contaminants from pavement run-off; water sampling; and water quality needs. It draws on information from a wide variety of sources, particularly in Europe and the USA, both published and unpublished, having been written by a broad team of practising engineers, hydrogeologists, environmental scientists and researchers. This book is the principal output of a large collaborative study performed as part of the COST programme, managed by the European Science Foundation.
