Advanced Testing and Characterization of Bituminous Materials, Two Volume Set

    1318 Pages
    by CRC Press

    Bituminous materials are used to build durable roads that sustain diverse environmental conditions. However, due to their complexity and a global shortage of these materials, their design and technical development present several challenges. Advanced Testing and Characterisation of Bituminous Materials focuses on fundamental and performance testing of binders and asphaltic mixtures. The contributions demonstrate that modern experimental material characterization techniques, sophisticated constitutive modeling, and innovative design provide appropriate tools for pavement performance prediction. The book is of interest to academics and engineers in pavement and road engineering.
