Description - Reflective Cracking in Pavements by L. Francken
Crack reflection through a road structure is one of the main causes of premature pavement deterioration. The phenomenon of reflective cracking is widespread in many countries, and, with current financial restrictions, highway maintenance authorities have to find economic means of repairing and upgrading their pavements. This book presents the Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Reflective Cracking in Pavements, organised by the RILEM Technical Committee 157-PRC, held in Maastricht in October 1996. Fifty-eight international papers cover the mjor topics of the conference: origin and prevention of reflective cracking; resistance to cracking of asphalt overlays; test methods for interlayers; theoretical and practical aspects of design methods; performance of maintenance techniques. This conference has proven the on-going interest of professionals in innovating rehabilitation techniques and maintenance procedures aiming at longer service lives and cost-effective solutions. This volume will be an unmatched source of information for highway engineers, contractors and authorities involved in road construction and maintenance.
