This second edition of Concrete Pavement Design, Construction, and Performance provides a solid foundation for pavement engineers seeking relevant and applicable design and construction instruction. It relies on general principles instead of specific ones, and incorporates illustrative case studies and prime design examples to highlight the material. It presents a thorough understanding of materials selection, mixture proportioning, design and detailing, drainage, construction techniques, and pavement performance. It also offers insight into the theoretical framework underlying commonly used design procedures as well as the limits of the applicability of the procedures. All chapters have been updated to reflect recent developments, including some alternative and emerging design technologies that improve sustainability.

What's New in the Second Edition:

The second edition of this book contains a new chapter on sustainability, and coverage of mechanistic-empirical design and pervious concrete pavements. RCC pavements are now given a new chapter. The text also expands the industrial pavement design chapter.

Outlines alternatives for concrete pavement solutionsIdentifies desired performance and behavior parametersEstablishes appropriate materials and desired concrete proportionsPresents steps for translating the design into a durable facility

The book highlights significant innovations such as one is two-lift concrete pavements, precast concrete pavement systems, RCC pavement, interlocking concrete pavers, thin concrete pavement design, and pervious concrete. This text also addresses pavement management, maintenance, rehabilitation, and overlays.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The second edition not only offers significant insight into the theoretical framework underlying frequently used design procedures, but also highlights significant innovations, as well as addressing issues of management, maintenance, rehabilitation and overlays for pavements. Revised editions of such a text would always find their place in university libraries, on consultants' shelves and on students' bedside tables. ... a very welcome publication that will be equally useful for related professionals, teachers, researchers and students."
-Structures and Buildings, May 2015

"This book is the most comprehensive reference on the subject of concrete pavements. Included are chapters on pavement design, mixture design, construction and even performance. It's all you need to know about concrete pavements in a single source."
--Wayne Adaska, Portland Cement Association
