Written by distinguished experts from countries around the world, Modeling of Asphalt Concrete presents in-depth coverage of materials, methods, and models used for asphalt pavements.

Includes:

  • State-of-the-art information on fundamental material properties and mechanisms affecting the performance of asphalt concrete
  • New rheological testing and analysis techniques
  • Constitutive models
  • Performance prediction methodologies for asphalt concrete and asphalt pavements

Emphasis is placed on the modeling of asphalt mixes for specific geographic/climatic requirements. In light of America's crumbling infrastructure and our heavy usage of asphalt as a paving material, this timely reference is essential for the development of more-durable and cost-effective asphalt materials for both new construction and rehabilitation.

Harness the Latest Breakthroughs in Asphalt Concrete Technology:

  • Asphalt Rheology
  • Constitutive Models
  • Stiffness Characterization
  • Models for Low-Temperature Cracking
  • Models for Fatigue Cracking and Moisture Damage
  • Models for Rutting and Aging
