Asphalt is an almost ubiquitous material in modern life, but maintaining it is disruptive and environmentally damaging. As environmental concerns grow, traditional pavement maintenance methods have fallen foul of wider sustainability goals, due to the volume of construction waste, noise and dust pollution, and disruption to traffic that they cause. Hot In-Place Recycling (HIPR) is a recognised and proven way of reducing the environmental impact of asphalt, and reducing disruption to traffic during repair and maintenance work. Research and Application of Hot In-Place Recycling Technology for Asphalt Pavement is the first comprehensive book on the topic that presents over two decades of theoretical and practical experience gained in China. This book gives comprehensive coverage of HIPR including pavement evaluation, distress analysis, mix design, processes and equipment selection, implementation, and acceptance criteria. In eight chapters, this book covers HIPR from theoretical and practical viewpoints, and provides detailed case-studies based on real-world experience with the technique. The volume includes everything engineers need to apply HIPR to improve sustainability and reduce disruption during the maintenance and repair of asphalt.
- Presents, for the first time in English, decades of experience and research on Hot in-Place Recycling Technology (HIPR) for asphalt pavements from thirty years of research and application in China
- Considers all the aspects of HIPR that engineers need to use the technique for road maintenance and repair
- Details how HIPR drastically improves the sustainability of asphalt, and reduces disruption to traffic during repair and maintenance work
- Includes detailed case-studies from thirty years of HIPR in China to give context and practical know-ho
- Provides a comprehensive summary of HIPR that will be useful to all stakeholders looking to make asphalt more environmentally sustainable, including civil engineers and highway-maintenance specialists
