1. “Material, Design, Construction, Maintenance, and Testing of Pavement (Geotechnical Special Publications)” by Dar-Hao Chen and Cindy Estakhri

“Material, Design, Construction, Maintenance, and Testing of Pavement (Geotechnical Special Publications)” book Review: This book includes a variety of issues in pavement engineering, along with the very latest research in areas such as materials, design, and construction. The topics include: warm mix asphalt, material characterization, pavement performance modeling, and pavement testing and evaluation. This is useful for geotechnical and pavement engineers, as well as to professionals and practitioners involved in highway construction. It seeks to expand the range of tools that are available to engineers and scientists in geotechnical and pavement engineering.

2. “Advances in Asphalt Materials: Road and Pavement Construction (Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineering)” by Shin-Che Huang and Hervé Di Benedetto

“Advances in Asphalt Materials: Road and Pavement Construction (Woodhead Publishing Series in Civil and Structural Engineering)” Book Review: This book provides a comprehensive review on recent advances in research and technological developments in bituminous materials. In this book, part One covers the physicochemical characterisation and analysis of asphalt materials. Part Two reviews the range of distress (damage) mechanisms in asphalt materials, with chapters covering cracking, deformation, fatigue cracking and healing of asphalt mixtures, as well as moisture damage and the multiscale oxidative aging modelling approach for asphalt concrete. The final section of this book investigates alternative asphalt materials. It provides insight into advances and techniques for bituminous materials.

3. “Street Pavements and Paving Materials: A Manual of City Pavements, the Methods and Materials of Their Construction (Classic Reprint)” by Geo W Tillson
4. “Pavement Design and Materials” by A T Papagiannakis and E A Masad

“Pavement Design and Materials” Book Review: This book focuses on the best-established, currently applicable techniques available. It covers the characterization of traffic input, the characterization of pavement bases/subgrades and aggregates, asphalt binder and asphalt concrete characterization, portland cement and concrete characterization, analysis of flexible and rigid pavements, pavement evaluation, environmental effects on pavements, the design of flexible and rigid pavements, pavement rehabilitation, economic analysis of alternative pavement designs. In this book, the reader finds the most up-to-date software available.

5. “Stabilization of Pavement Material” by Ra B Depaa

“Stabilization of Pavement Material” Book Review: This book provides information on the suitability of waste materials like Brick Kiln Dust, Marble Dust, Marble Chips and Tyre Scraps as soil stabilizers for use in pavement. Also, the suitability of Quarry Dust, which is not considered as a waste material nowadays and 6mm aggregate chips as a soil stabilizing agent is studied. The amount of cost savings for a pavement when it is stabilized separately with brick kiln dust, marble dust, marble chips and tyre scraps is also studied. It also shows that brick kiln dust, marble dust, marble chips, tyre scraps, quarry dust and 6mm aggregate chips can effectively be used as soil stabilizer for subgrade, capping layer and sub base layers as the CBR value is increased.

6. “Recent Developments in Soil and Pavement Mechanics” by Almeida Marcio
7. “Pavement Mechanics and Performance (Geotechnical Special Publication)” by Baoshan Huang and Roger Meier

“Pavement Mechanics and Performance (Geotechnical Special Publication)” Book Review: This book shows the latest advances in mechanistic modeling for highway and airfield pavements, pavement material characterization through advanced technology and pavement performance prediction. The book is divided into three sections: Pavement Mechanics, Accelerated Pavement Testing, and Performance and Pavement Foundation. Imaging analysis, non-destructive testing and innovative laboratory and field testing techniques are used in pavement material characterization. It also focuses on focus on the evaluation of pavement performance through various accelerated loading testing (APT) facilities around the world.

8. “Expansive Soils: Problems and Practice in Foundation and Pavement Engineering (Wiley Professional)” by John Nelson and Debora J Miller

“Expansive Soils: Problems and Practice in Foundation and Pavement Engineering (Wiley Professional)” Book Review: This book provides technical information for building on expansive soils–complete with practical, proven design methods. It also examines factors that influence the design of foundations and pavements built on expansive soils, and exploreskey design procedures and remedial measures that address these factors effectively. It is easy to understand and apply, It helps to site investigation techniques for identification and classification of expansive soils, heave prediction methods using different types of data –with rigorous treatment of soil suction theory and measurement,oedometer tests, and more alternative design procedures for drilled pier and slab-on-grade foundations, highway and airfield pavements.

9. “Design and Construction of Pavements and Rail Tracks” by Antonio Gomes Correia and Yoshitsugu Momoya
10. “Asphalt Concrete: Simulation, Modeling and Experimental Characterization (Geotechnical Special Publication)” by Eyad Masad and Vassilis Panaskaltsis

“Asphalt Concrete: Simulation, Modeling and Experimental Characterization (Geotechnical Special Publication)” Book Review: This book focuses on important topics in pavement engineering, such as: modeling asphalt concrete response at the microstructural level, development and numerical implementation of constitutive models, and experimental characterization of asphalt concrete under different loading and environmental conditions. They also highlight the numerical implementation of micromechanical models that focus on establishing the linkage between the properties of asphalt concrete constituents and the macroscopic response. It is useful for engineers working with pavement analysis, design, and performance prediction.
