    Salient Features

    • NEW - KENPAVE Windows program—Based on the mechanistic-empirical method; written using Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0; combines the flexible and rigid pavements into a single package together with the addition of new input programs and computer graphics.
      • Demonstrates to students how theory can be put into practice, and gives them a better understanding of the pavement design process.
      • Serves as a useful tool for the structural design of raft foundations—an important subject in geotechnical engineering.
    • NEW - Revised material on the AASHTO overlay design method.
      • Reflects the AASHTO design guide which was revised in 1993.
    • NEW - Added developments and information throughout—i.e., a new method based on the Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion; and new comparisons between KENLAYER and the latest Windows version of MICH-PAVE.
      • Keeps the book and students current, and broadens the scope of knowledge contained in both.
    • NEW - Three additional appendices—Superpave; Pavement Management System; and Preview of 2002 Design Guide.
      • Provides students with the most current information available while new publications by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials are being approved and implemented.
