Developing countries in the tropics have different natural conditions and different institutional and financial situations to industrialized countries. However, most textbooks on highway engineering are based on experience from industrialized countries with temperate climates, and deal only with specific problems. Road Engineering for Development (published as Highway and Traffic Engineering in Developing Countries in its first edition) provides a comprehensive description of the planning, design, construction and maintenance of roads in developing countries. It covers a wide range of technical and non-technical problems that may confront road engineers working in this area. The technical content of the book has been fully updated and current development issues are focused on. Designed as a fundamental text for civil engineering students this book also offers a broad, practical view of the subject for practising engineers. It has been written with the assistance of a number of world-renowned specialist professional engineers with many years experience in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Central America.Technical analysis within the HDM-4 is undertaken using four sets of models: Models RDWE (a#39;Road deterioration and works effectsa#39;) - predicts pavement deterioration for bituminous, concrete and unsealed roads, and simulates the effects of road works on pavement ... 1990). quality Project level analysis data is specified in terms of measured defects (IQL-II), whereas the specification for strategy andanbsp;...
