About the book

There are two main pavement types, asphalt, and concrete pavements. Traditional asphalt pavements, commonly called flexible pavements, consist of several unbound layers built directly on top of the natural soil, subgrade, followed by one or more asphalt layers. The thickness of these layers depends on the expected traffic loads during the pavement design life, as well as different environmental factors. On the other hand, concrete pavements, commonly called rigid pavements, consist of one or two unbound layers built directly on top of the subgrade followed by Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) slabs. It is also common to use an asphalt stabilized layer directly beneath the PCC slabs to improve the subdrainage characteristics of the PCC pavement. In addition, asphalt is used to maintain and rehabilitate pavements. The use of asphalt in maintenance activities includes crack sealing, patches, seal coats, thin overlays and friction course. While the use of asphalt in rehabilitation activities includes functional and structural overlays. One of the many advantages of asphalt mixtures is the reuse of existing asphalt. Asphalt mixtures can be recycled and reused in different forms, such as Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) and Full Depth Reclamation (FDR).

This book provides an overview of asphalt pavement design, evaluation, maintenance and rehabilitation. It also covers the use of asphalt layers in rehabilitating rigid pavements.

Dr. Zaghloul obtained his PhD in Civil Engineering from Purdue University, USA, in 1993. He is associated with several important societies such as American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), USA; Transportation Research Board (TRB); American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM). He is a professional engineer (licensed in USA and Canada) with over 30 years of experience in the areas of Transportation Asset Management (TAM), pavement engineering and engineering economics. Behind him, he has several successfully completed research studies in North America and Middle East, among which are: California State-wide Pavement Performance Evaluation Research Project - Phases l&ll – Performed for the Division of Research of California Department of Transportation, USA (2000 – 2008) and Evaluation of the Automated Distress Survey Technologies – Performed for the Bureau of Research of New Jersey Department of Transportation, USA (2008 - 2009). He has over 20 years of operation management (managed operations with more than 100 professionals and annual turnover budget exceeding US$12 m) and over 26 years of project management experience (managed several mega projects in North America and Middle East).
