Book Description

Highway engineers are facing the challenge not only to design and construct sustainable and safe pavements properly and economically. This implies a thorough understanding of materials behaviour, their appropriate use in the continuously changing environment, and implementation of constantly improved technologies and methodologies. Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements VII contains more than 100 contributions that were presented at the 7th International Conference ‘Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements’ (7ICONFBMP, Thessaloniki, Greece 12-14 June 2019). The papers cover a wide range of topics:

- Bituminous binders
- Aggregates, unbound layers and subgrade
- Bituminous mixtures (Hot, Warm and Cold)
- Pavements (Design, Construction, Maintenance, Sustainability, Energy and environment consideration)
- Pavement management
- Pavement recycling
- Geosynthetics
- Pavement assessment, surface characteristics and safety
- Posters

Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements VII reflects recent advances in highway materials technology and pavement engineering, and will be of interest to academics and professionals interested or involved in these areas.
