Pavements Unbound -(Free PDF)

File Size: 10.62 mb

Jones, in 1981 there has been a great deal of change in the use of aggregates in roads. The drivers of this change are many and various, but the following, seem to me, of particular 
• Environmental concerns, reflected by increasingly voluminous legislation, increasing
the pressure to incorporate unconventional materials into pavement construction.
• Reducing taxation regimes, with public spending moving away from infrastructure toneducation and health, thereby requiring more efficient use of money and resources.
• The completion of the principal road network in most developed countries and the consequent movement from construction to maintenance and improvement.
• An increasing recognition of the importance of road transport infrastructure in the economies of developing countries, yet where funding is very difficult.
In response to these issues, engineers have been driven back to a fundamental understanding of the way conventional crushed aggregates behave, how this compares to the behaviour of alternatives and how properties may be amended or best exploited to maximise their engineering capacity. In summary, one could say that the aim has been to get the necessary performance from different or poorer materials for less cost.
