Pavement Design and Materials by A. T. Papagiannakis and E. A. Masad

This textbook covers pavement materials, analysis, design, evaluation, and economics of asphalt andportland concrete roadways. Its intended audience is engineering students at the undergraduate and junior graduate levels. In addition, practicing engineers may find it useful as a reference for practical design applications. Its structure focuses on the best established and currently applicable techniques for material characterization, analysis, and design, rather than offering a historical perspective of these techniques and the way they are applied by the multitude of jurisdictions dealing with roadway pavements. In compiling this textbook, our initial intention was to utilize metric (SI) units throughout. However, this was tempered by the number of empirical expressions still in use involving imperial units, including some adopted by the Mechanistic-Empirical design guide. In such cases, the use of dual units was unavoidable.
