Asphalt Surfacings

£50.00

Product description

Asphalt Surfacings
E&FN Spon, London. 1998. pp405.
As new reference, edited by JC Nicholls.

No jacket. Green glossy boards with image of road construction. Slight shelf wear but essentially as new.
Immaculate unread block contains numerous b/w plates, diagrams and charts; highly technical material. Contributions from a dozen or so highly learned experts on the subject.

Asphalt Surfacings has been written as a reference to the various asphalt course materials and surfacing treatments that are currently available to engineers, enabling them to select the materials and/or treatment that are appropriate for use on specific sites. Appropriate reference is made to the lower structural layers as the properties of all layers interact in producing the required pavement. The current established position in the UK and the emerging developments throughout the UK and Europe are covered. The contributors are all acknowledged authorities on their particular topics selected from every part of the highway engineering industry to achieve a balance between the various approaches required by the different functions they perform.

The problems caused by dust were bad enough in the 1850's but were made much worse by the advent of the motor vehicle, and a simultaneous problem arose with the smoothness and durability of road surfaces.

Editor, is a renowned expert on asphalt.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
