New book on concrete pavements Concrete Pavement Design, Construction and Performance

The ACI has released a new publication “Concrete Pavement Design, Construction and Performance” written by Norbert Delatte. It is available through the ACI at – go to thier bookstore. “A pavement project may be envisioned as a three link chain, consisting of materials, design, and construction. Because the weakest link governs the performance of the system, engineers must be knowledgeable of all three aspects as well as their interactions. This book is a synthesis of the three aspects, with special emphasis on what engineers have learned about concrete pavement design in moving from empirical and mechanistic approaches into the current AASHTO M-EPDG procedure that combines both approaches.”
