Pavements are engineered structures essential to transportation, commerce and trade, and everyday life. In order for them to perform as expected, they must be designed, constructed, maintained, and managed properly. Providing a comprehensive overview of the subject, Pavement Engineering: Principles and Practice, Second Edition covers a wide range of topics in asphalt and concrete pavements, from soil preparation to structural design and construction. This new edition includes updates in all chapters and two new chapters on emerging topics that are becoming universally important: engineering of sustainable pavements and environmental mitigation in transportation projects. It also contains new examples and new figures with more informative schematics as well as helpful photographs. The text describes the significance of standards and examines traffic, drainage, concrete mixes, asphalt binders, distress and performance in concrete and asphalt pavements, and pavement maintenance and rehabilitation. It also contains a chapter on airport pavements and discusses nondestructive tests for pavement engineering using nuclear, deflection-based, electromagnetic, and seismic equipment. The authors explore key concepts and techniques for economic analysis and computing life-cycle cost, instrumentation for acquiring test data, and specialty applications of asphalt and concrete. The Second Edition includes more relevant issues and recently developed techniques and guidelines for practical problems, such as selection of pavement type, effect of vehicle tires, and use of smart sensors in rollers and software for drainage analysis. This book presents in-depth, state-of-the-art knowledge in a range of relevant topics in pavement engineering, with numerous examples and figures and comprehensive references to online resources for literature and software. It provides a good understanding of construction practices essential for new engineers and materials processing and construction needed for solving numerous problems.

"This manual outlines a procedure for the analysis and design of flexible pav~ts. The analytic techniques upon which this procedure 1S based have been as-sembled from sound fundamental principles, evaluations of laboratory data, and field studies. The concepts used have been formulated in State Highway Planning and Research, National Cooperative Highway Research Program, Administrntive Contract, and FHWA staff studies. The overall framework was developed and programmed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology under FHWA contract (2). A modification of the MIT program (VESYS 11M) is now availabIe for implementation by highway departments and other agencies cooperating with the FHWA in applying the mechanistic predictive procedures to the structural analysis and design of pavement systems. Work on the manual was initiated by the Pavement Systems Group of the Office of Research and Development for the purpose of organizing, systematizing, and publishing the design procedure. It will assist the pavement designer in analyzing the structural integrity of flexible pavement systems. Work was accomplished under project SC, "New Methodology for Flexible Pavement Design," under the direction of William J. Kenis. FHWA staff who contributed to this effort include Dr. T.F. McMahon, Mr. George Tiller, Mr. James Sherwood, Mr. Loren Staunton, and Mr. Brian Brademeyer. Typing of the manual was done by the FHWA Word processing Center, and Mrs. Fredericka Smith. The predictive design procedure is adaptable to an overall highway management system. Such a system will be capable of predicting pavement distress and maintenance requirements. The optimum design and maintenance strategy alternative will be identified through an evaluation of total pavement cost."
