Publication Details

Principles of Construction of Quality Hot-Mix Asphalt Pavements - Inspectors' Training Course Manual General Interest: provides practical guidance to engineers responsible for the day-to-day design, construction, rehabilitation, maintenance, and management of pavements.

Primary Topic: Pavement Construction

Description: This manual is designed to provide novice hot-mix asphalt pavement inspectors with the knowledge needed to perform their duties. It also serves as a source of information from which experienced inspectors and others involved in asphalt pavement construction can refresh their knowledge and review current inspection practices. This publication utilizes the standard specifications and tests of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) as the primary source of reference. Customary English units of measurement are used as the principal indicators, followed by metric conversions in parentheses. The metric terminology identifying sieve sizes varies from that of the U. S .A. Standard Sieve Size Designations. Although able to stand alone as an inspectors' manual, this text is part of a comprehensive course of instruction which includes visual aids and an instructor's manual.
