Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements contains 113 accepted papers from the 6th International Conference ‘Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements’ (6th ICONFBMP, Thessaloniki, Greece, 10-12 June 2015). The 6th ICONFBMP is organized every four years by the Highway Engineering Laboratory of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in conjunction with the Built Environment Research Institute (BERI) of the University of Ulster, UK, and the Center for Advanced Infrastructure Technology (CAIT) of the University of Mississippi, USA. The contributions reflect the most recent advances in highway materials technology and pavement engineering, and showcase research and practical experiences of scientists and engineers from 32 different countries. The book is divided into seven parts(matching the conference sessions): I. Bituminous binders, Unbound materials; II. Pavement design, Construction and Maintenance; III. Bituminous mixtures (Hot, warm, and cold), Specifications IV. Highway and Pavement Management Systems, Network operation systems; V. Pavement recycling, Geosynthetics; VI. Pavement assessment, Surface characteristics; and VII. Road safety, Road marking and street furniture. Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements will be of interest to engineers and academics in Pavement Engineering, Infrastructure Technology, Highway Engineering, Materials Technology.

Functional Pavement Design is a collections of 186 papers from 27 different countries, which were presented at the 4th Chinese-European Workshops (CEW) on Functional Pavement Design (Delft, the Netherlands, 29 June-1 July 2016). The focus of the CEW series is on field tests, laboratory test methods and advanced analysis techniques, and cover analysis, material development and production, experimental characterization, design and construction of pavements. The main areas covered by the book include: - Flexible pavements - Pavement and bitumen - Pavement performance and LCCA - Pavement structures - Pavements and environment - Pavements and innovation - Rigid pavements - Safety - Traffic engineering Functional Pavement Design aims at contributing to the establishment of a new generation of pavement design methodologies in which rational mechanics principles, advanced constitutive models and advanced material characterization techniques shall constitute the backbone of the design process. The book will be much of interest to professionals and academics in pavement engineering and related disciplines.

Insights and Innovations in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation comprises 360 papers that were presented at the Sixth International Conference on Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation (SEMC 2016, Cape Town, South Africa, 5-7 September 2016). The papers reflect the broad scope of the SEMC conferences, and cover a wide range of engineering structures (buildings, bridges, towers, roofs, foundations, offshore structures, tunnels, dams, vessels, vehicles and machinery) and engineering materials (steel, aluminium, concrete, masonry, timber, glass, polymers, composites, laminates, smart materials). Some contributions present the latest insights and new understanding on (i) the mechanics of structures and systems (dynamics, vibration, seismic response, instability, buckling, soil-structure interaction), and (ii) the mechanics of materials and fluids (elasticity, plasticity, fluid-structure interaction, flow through porous media, biomechanics, fracture, fatigue, bond, creep, shrinkage). Other contributions report on (iii) recent advances in computational modelling and testing (numerical simulations, finite-element modeling, experimental testing), and (iv) developments and innovations in structural engineering (planning, analysis, design, construction, assembly, maintenance, repair and retrofitting of structures). Insights and Innovations in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation is particularly of interest to civil, structural, mechanical, marine and aerospace engineers. Researchers, developers, practitioners and academics in these disciplines will find the content useful. Short versions of the papers, intended to be concise but self-contained summaries of the full papers, are collected in the book, while the full versions of the papers are on the accompanying CD.

Bearing Capacity of Roads, Railways and Airfields includes the contributions to the 10th International Conference on the Bearing Capacity of Roads, Railways and Airfields (BCRRA 2017, 28-30 June 2017, Athens, Greece). The papers cover aspects related to materials, laboratory testing, design, construction, maintenance and management systems of transport infrastructure, and focus on roads, railways and airfields. Additional aspects that concern new materials and characterization, alternative rehabilitation techniques, technological advances as well as pavement and railway track substructure sustainability are included. The contributions discuss new concepts and innovative solutions, and are concentrated but not limited on the following topics: · Unbound aggregate materials and soil properties · Bound materials characteritics, mechanical properties and testing · Effect of traffic loading · In-situ measurements techniques and monitoring · Structural evaluation · Pavement serviceability condition · Rehabilitation and maintenance issues · Geophysical assessment · Stabilization and reinforcement · Performance modeling · Environmental challenges · Life cycle assessment and sustainability Bearing Capacity of Roads, Railways and Airfields is essential reading for academics and professionals involved or interested in transport infrastructure systems, in particular roads, railways and airfields.

Nearly all highway, airport, dock and industrial pavements contain large quantities of untreated aggregate in the form of unbound pavement layers. In many pavements, which are lightly or moderately trafficked, crushed rock or gravel derived aggregates comprise the majority of the construction or, in the case of unsealed pavements, all of the structure. This book provides studies of the performance and description of this material that will help the reader to better understand its characteristics and behaviour both alone and as part of the pavement structure it forms. This work will be useful to practitioners, policy makers, researchers and students. It forms a sequel to the earlier book "Unbound Aggregates in Road Construction" also published by Balkema

Internationally, much attention is given to causes, prevention, and rehabilitation of cracking in concrete, flexible, and composite pavements. The Sixth RILEM International Conference on Cracking in Pavements (Chicago, June 16-18, 2008) provided a forum for discussion of recent developments and research results. This book is a collection of papers from the Conference, and includes contributions on a variety of topics: - Modeling of the initiation and propagation of pavement cracking - Top-down and bottom-up fatigue cracking mechanisms - Laboratory testing techniques and evaluation effectiveness - Construction approaches and their relation to crack development - Crack surveys and nondestructive evaluation - In-situ experimental studies: field construction and rehabilitation techniques to inhibit pavement cracking - Performance of crack preventative techniques and pavement service life prediction - Interlay system effectiveness - Pavement cracking evaluation using accelerated pavement testing - Hot-mix asphalt overlay characterization - Pavement interface modeling and testing - Laboratory and field model validation - Low-temperature cracking mechanisms and field studies - Cracking in semi-rigid and stabilized pavement layers - Analytical and experimental investigations of concrete joints - White topping performance Pavement Cracking: Mechanisms, Modeling, Detection, Testing, and Case Histories is particularly of interest to academics, researchers, and practitioners involved in pavement mechanics and performance.
