Book Overview

This text/software package explores the structural analysis and design of highway pavements - focusing on the mechanistic-empirical design procedures rather than the purely empirical methods. *presents the theory of pavement design and reviews the methods developed by several organizations, such as the AASHTO, the AI, and the PCA. *includes the KENLAYER program for flexible pavements - applicable to a multilayered system under stationary or moving...

The pavement design bible

So what I can say about this book? It's simply the best. From very basic to advance pavement design, this book is full of theroetical concerns about the pavement design as well as empirical methods for special pavements. It also includes a software to simulate a road different layers behaviour when loads applied on top. Very useful and, in my opinion, a must-have for those engineers who work in this bussiness.

It is absolutely necessary for roads and railways engineering

It is a very detailled text-book containing full description of the methods used. It distributes also the KENPAVE software which is the State-of-the-Art software for Pavements. It also cites and criticizes the Westergaard's solution as it has been reconsindered by Ioannides et al. It is absolutely necessary for the engineers occupying with science and practice.

General Help

Overall, the book is helpful. It starts off discussing the general pavement types, design methods, and roads tests. Included in this section are the results of findings which, although not something I consider in everyday design, are items that are interesting enough to promote thought in my designs. All in all, I found almost all the chapters useful as they cover stresses in flexible and rigid pavements, rigid and flexible pavement design, drainage design, pavement performance, as well as a few other issues. The only downfall are the two chapters covering the authors computer program. Most books have this problem, though, as technology quickly outgrows software, but enough information is given in relation to results of parametric studies to make these chapters worth the time needed to read through them.All in all, a pretty good purchase.

pavement analysis and design

o livro faz uma abordagem de forma racional e científica dos métodos mecanísticos para dimensionamento e análise de pavimentos flexíveis e rígidos, representado um guia para o engenheiro estrutural que pensa em abordar os pavimentos pelo método mecanístico. Ainda é um guia para uso dos softwares kenlayer e kenslabs, fundamentais para análise de tensões e deslocamentos em pavimentos de concreto e asfalto. é o livro de consultas fundamental nessa área, sem a menor dúvida. Uma obra indispensável.
