International Series of Monographs in Civil Engineering, Volume 4: Concrete in Highway Engineering focuses on the design and construction of highways. The book first offers information on concrete as a material. Cement, aggregates, water, concrete mixes, and curing concrete are then explained. The text examines the design of pavements. Principles of design, traffic loading, design of flexible and concrete pavements, and types of pavement are underscored. The text looks at subgrade soils, sub-bases, and drainage. Topics such as moisture control and drainage; control of surface and subsoil water; and layouts for subsoil drainage and for surface water drainage are discussed. The text also examines the composition of concrete roads, prestressed concrete roads, and maintenance and repair techniques. The book then discusses the appearance and surface characteristics of concrete and construction in extreme weather conditions. The selection is a reliable reference for readers wanting to know about the design and construction of highways.
