Roads and Airports Pavement Surface Characteristics Proceedings of the 9th Symposium on Pavement Surface Characteristics (SURF 2022, 12 – 14 September 2022, Milan, Italy)

Edited By Maurizio Crispino, Emanuele Toraldo Copyright 2023

    Roads and Airports Pavement Surface Characteristics contains the papers presented at the 9th International Symposium on Pavement Surface Characteristics (SURF 2022, Milan, Italy, 12-14 September 2022). The symposium was jointly organized by the Italian company that manages Italy’s National Roads (ANAS –Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane Group), the World Road Association (PIARC) and Politecnico di Milano. The contributions aim to improve the quality of pavement surface characteristics while accomplishing efficiency, safety, sustainability, and addressing new generation mobility needs. The book covers topics from emerging research to engineering practice, and is divided in the following sections:

    • Advanced and performing construction methods and equipment
    • Next generation mobility
    • Data monitoring and performance assessment
    • Surface features and performances|
    • Maintenance and preservation treatments
    • Pavement management
    • Economic and political strategies
    • Safety and risk issues
    • Minimizing road impacts
    • Sustainability and performances issues about materials and design
    • Pavements surfaces and urban heat islands
    • Weather conditions impact
    • Airport pavements
