Analytical design of thin surfaced asphalt pavements in Germany
This article presents a new mechanistic-empirical design approach for thin asphalt layer pavements. The design approach was developed by focusing on limiting the main sources of rutting of unbound granular pavements.
Taking decisions in the rehabilitation of flexible pavements based on non-destructive measurements
The present paper outlines a proposal that allows to develop an intervention approach with regard to the rehabilitation of the pavement, as well as the determination of the thicknesses of reinforcement, based on the deflection bowl parameters.
New pavement types reduce rolling resistance
This article describes how the implementation of a new asphalt pavement type reducing the rolling resistance enabled the reduction in CO 2 emissions in Denmark.
Advances in bituminous binder characterization - The way forward to better engineered binders
Bitumens have been extensively used for years in road paving, so much that they are part of the scenery and are perceived as standard engineering materials. But are they? [...]
Nanotechnology solutions for road infrastructure
Nanotechnology has been a rich field of research that has already brought to reality interesting new performances for different disciplines including road technology and construction materials, thereby leading to new levels of performances [...]
