  • Recent research on asphalt binder aging and rejuvenators
  • Key data on asphalt performance and formulations
  • Updates on tests and specifications
  • Fully-searchable text on CD-ROM (included)

This series volume comprises research papers and technical reports developed within the U.S.-based Association of Asphalt Paving Technologists. The book is divided into sessions focused on technology, specifications, cold recycling of RAP, and rejuvenators, with special emphasis on aging and on how rejuvenators are modeled, formulated and used to improve asphalt binders and prevent cracking.

The CD-ROM displays figures and illustrations in articles in full color along with a title screen and main menu screen. Each user can link to all papers from the Table of Contents and Author Index and also link to papers and front matter by using the global bookmarks which allow navigation of the entire CD-ROM from every article. Search features on the CD-ROM can be by full text including all key words, article title, author name, and session title. The CD-ROM has Autorun feature for Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4 or higher products along with the program for Adobe Acrobat Reader with Search 11.0. One year of technical support is included with your purchase of this product.
