This manual is published for engineers who determine thickness requirements for asphalt pavement structures. The manual will also serve as a useful text for instruction of students in highway engineering. The manual presents methods for evaluating the factors that should be considered in the overall thickness design of the asphalt pavement structure. It includes such important topics as traffic evaluation, subgrade soil evaluation, total thickness and layer thickness determination, compaction, drainage, and environmental effects

Asphalt in pavement maintenance by Asphalt Institute( Book )

19 editions published between 1967 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a how-to-do-it manual, limited to specific information on the use of asphalt in pavement maintenance. Planning, programming, financing and administration of maintenance are beyond its scope. Usually, money for pavement maintenance is limited and the maintenance man is called upon to "make one dollar do the work of two;" this is not easy. Large differences in soil types, climate, terrain, traffic and other factors make for greatly varying problems, even within small areas. Some regions are rugged and mountainous while others are fairly smooth and level; some have heavy rainfall, others are semi-arid; some highways and streets must accommodate vehicles carrying coal, ore, logs, or other heavy loads, while others are subjected to only light-weight traffic
Drainage of asphalt pavement structures by Asphalt Institute( Book )

Principles of Construction of Hot-Mix Asphalt Pavements by Asphalt Institute( Book )

7 editions published between 1982 and 1992 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The manual is intended to provide information for the quality control of hot-mix asphalt pavements. Although emphasis is placed on the duties and responsibilities of asphalt inspectors, good quality control procedures must also involve other personnel who should understand quality control procedures and efficient plant and paving practices. The manual also details all aspects of hot-mix asphalt pavement construction from the initial acceptance of the aggregate and asphalt to the laying and compaction

This publication has been prepared in convenient pocket form to furnish engineers and inspectors on asphalt construction with information on unloading tank cars, temperature-volume corrections of asphalts, and useful tables as shown in the contents
Asphalt overlays and pavement rehabilitation by Asphalt Institute( Book )

5 editions published between 1969 and 1977 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this manual is to serve the needs of the motoring public. Our system of paved roads and streets has developed steadily over the years. Still, the rapid increase in the number of vehicles has far exceeded the mileage of new roads added to accommodate them. Many of the older pavements are carrying motor vehicles whose volume and weight and speed are far in excess of those for which the pavements were designed. Sharp curves, steep grades, short sight distances, short vertical curves and narrow roadways are among the geometrical deficiencies that limit the pavements capacity and safety. In addition, many pavements, for various reasons, need strengthening; others need surface restoration. The objective of this manual is to propose an economical way to salvage, strengthen, and modernize deficient roads and streets with asphalt concrete

Sampling asphalt products for specifications compliance by Asphalt Institute( Book )

10 editions published between 1968 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Asphalt Institute has long recognized the need for an improved, simple method of obtaining asphalt samples that show the true nature and condition of the material. Accordingly, an ad hoc committee on asphalt sampling was organized, with members representing all of the U.S. and the Dominion of Canada. The committee's assignment was to develop methods for sampling asphalt products from motor vehicle tanks, railroad car tanks, and stationary tanks. The committee was also asked to develop a guide for determining when a vehicle tank is acceptable for loading with various asphalt products
