            Highway engineers are facing the challenge not only to design and construct sustainable and safe pavements properly and economically. This implies a thorough understanding of materials behaviour, their appropriate use in the continuously changing environment, and implementation o...f constantly improved technologies and methodologies. Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements VII contains more than 100 contributions that were presented at the 7th International Conference `Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements' (7ICONFBMP, Thessaloniki, Greece 12-14 June 2019). The papers cover a wide range of topics: - Bituminous binders - Aggregates, unbound layers and subgrade - Bituminous mixtures (Hot, Warm and Cold) - Pavements (Design, Construction, Maintenance, Sustainability, Energy and environment consideration) - Pavement management - Pavement recycling - Geosynthetics - Pavement assessment, surface characteristics and safety - Posters Bituminous Mixtures and Pavements VII reflects recent advances in highway materials technology and pavement engineering, and will be of interest to academics and professionals interested or involved in these areas.

            This title was first published in 2003. The history of roads in Great Britain has not been one of steady development, but rather, one that has waxed and waned in response to social, military and economic needs, and also as to whether there have been alternative methods of transpo...rt available. Paralleling this, the technical aspects of road construction - with the one great exception of Roman roads - can be seen as a fitful progression of improvement followed by neglect as the roadmaker has responded, albeit tardily on occasion, to the needs of the road user. This text describes the technical development of British roads in relation to the needs of the time, and thereby touches upon its relation to the history of the country more generally.

            Internationally, full-scale accelerated pavement testing, either on test roads or linear/circular test tracks, has proven to be a valuable tool that fills the gap between models and laboratory tests and long-term experiments on in-service pavements. Accelerated pavement testing i...s used to improve understanding of pavement behavior, and evaluation of innovative materials and additives, alternative materials processing, new construction techniques, and new types of structures. It provides quick comparisons between current and new practice and the ability to rapidly validate and calibrate models with quality data, with minimal risk at relatively low cost. Accelerated Pavement Testing is a collection of papers from the 4th International Conference on Accelerated Pavement Testing (Davies, CA, USA, 19-21 September 2012), and includes contributions on a variety of topics including: - Overview of Accelerated Pavement Testing - Establishment of New Accelerated Pavement Testing Facilities - Review of the Impact of Accelerated Pavement Testing Programs on Practice - Instrumentation for Accelerated Pavement Testing - Accelerated Pavement Testing on Asphalt Concrete Pavements - Accelerated Pavement Testing on Portland Cement Concrete Pavements - Accelerated Pavement Testing to Evaluate Functional Performance - Relating Laboratory Tests to Performance using Accelerated Pavement Testing - Development and Calibration of Empirical and Mechanistic-empirical Pavement Design Procedures and Models - Benefit-cost Analysis of Accelerated Pavement Testing Accelerated Pavement Testing will be useful to academics and professionals involved in pavement engineering.

            This study, conducted in the capital city of Tanzania - Dar es Salaam, investigated the impact of urban infrastructure interaction on movement and safety on arterial roads. By studying characteristics of urban infrastructure interconnections the effects of urban infrastructure in...teractions on movement and safety were investigated strategies for ensuring sustainable improvement of movement and safety in the road corridors are recommended. The study employed both quantitative and qualitative research approaches. Data are collected through condition survey, questionnaires, interviews, documentary review, and observation using surveillance cameras. The results that infrastructure within the road corridor exist in inevitable interdependencies, which significantly causes deterioration of each other while impairing movement and safety. Impairment is seriously escalated by mismatches in standards and lack of coordination of operators in planning, designing, installation including operational approaches. It is being suggested that in order to attain sustainable improvement of movement and safety, integrated high performance infrastructure has to be adopted; and for enhancing safety, a model has been developed for planners and engineers for evaluating safety compliance for existing and proposed infrastructure within the road corridors. This book will be of inerest to policy makers, engineers, and researchers in transportation engineering.
