For one/two-semester, undergraduate/graduate courses in Pavement Design.

This up-to-date text covers both theoretical and practical aspects of pavement analysis and design. It includes some of the latest developments in the field, and some very useful computer software—developed by the author—with detailed instructions.

  • KENPAVE Windows program—Based on the mechanistic-empirical method; written using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0; combines the flexible and rigid pavements into a single package together with the addition of new input programs and computer graphics.
    • Demonstrates to students how theory can be put into practice, and gives them a better understanding of the pavement design process.

    • Serves as a useful tool for the structural design of raft foundations—an important subject in geotechnical engineering.

  • Added developments and information throughout—i.e., a new method based on the Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion; and new comparisons between KENLAYER and the latest Windows version of MICH-PAVE.
    • Keeps the book and students current, and broadens the scope of knowledge contained in both.

  • Three additional appendices—Superpave; Pavement Management System; and Preview of 2002 Design Guide.
    • Provides students with the most current information available while new publications by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials are being approved and implemented.

  • Numerous examples and homework problems—Accompanied, when possible, by a figure to explain the example or problem visually.
    • Offers students the opportunity to test their knowledge of learned concepts.

  • Emphasis on mechanistic-empirical design method.
    • Presents students with the fundamental background for a full understanding of this method—used by the Asphalt Institute, the Portland Cement Association, and the forthcoming AASHTO Pavement Design Guide.

  • Comparison between manual and computer solutions.
    • Allows students to see that the solutions obtained from the equations and charts check very closely with the computer solutions.

  • Chapter-end summaries.
    • Refreshes students with all the important points covered in each chapter before moving on to the next one.

  • KENPAVE Windows program—Based on the mechanistic-empirical method; written using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0; combines the flexible and rigid pavements into a single package together with the addition of new input programs and computer graphics.
    • Demonstrates to students how theory can be put into practice, and gives them a better understanding of the pavement design process.

    • Serves as a useful tool for the structural design of raft foundations—an important subject in geotechnical engineering.

  • Revised material on the AASHTO overlay design method.
    • Reflects the AASHTO design guide which was revised in 1993.

  • Added developments and information throughout—i.e., a new method based on the Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion; and new comparisons between KENLAYER and the latest Windows version of MICH-PAVE.
    • Keeps the book and students current, and broadens the scope of knowledge contained in both.

  • Three additional appendices—Superpave; Pavement Management System; and Preview of 2002 Design Guide.
    • Provides students with the most current information available while new publications by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials are being approved and implemented.
