Concrete Pavement Design, Construction, and Performance

Preference :

In the years since the first edition was published, there have been a number of changes in concrete pavement technology. Some approaches are now less used. Other topics have become more important and required new chapters, such as sustainability, the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide for highways, and pervious concrete and roller compacted pavements. All other chapters have been thoroughly reviewed, and trimmed to make room for new material. I hope that this work will continue to be of value to students, professors, researchers, and practicing engineers.
