This collection contains 37 peer-reviewed papers discussing the latest research on pavement materials that support sustainable infrastructure development. About half the papers examine the use of cementitious paving materials, including studies on the rheological behavior of fresh cement mortar; the effects of small recycled aggregate fractions in concrete production; and early-age cracking. The remaining papers focus on bituminous paving materials and explore such issues as asphalt aging, maintenance of porous asphalt cement pavements, and emissions of volatile organic compounds. The use of recycled materials, such as waste tire rubber and rubber powder, and of waste materials, such as reclaimed asphalt pavement, crumb rubber, and coal tar pitch, is also covered. Many papers include descriptions of projects from around the world, including China, Libya, Sudan, South Africa, Belgium, and Austria. These papers will be valuable to construction and transportation engineers and material scientists interested in the latest developments in sustainable construction materials for pavements.

Experimental composite pavements were constructed at MnROAD in Minnesota and the University of California Pavement Research Center at Davis, where the pavements were instrumented and monitored under climate and heavy traffic loadings. A composite pavement consisting of HMA over jointed plain concrete also was constructed in the field by the Illinois Tollway north of Chicago. At the Tollway, extensive field surveys were performed on 64 sections of the two types of composite pavements. This project also evaluated, improved, and further validated applicable structural, climatic, material, and performance prediction models, and design algorithms that are included in the AASHTO MEPDG and DARWin-ME, CalME, NCHRP 1-41 reflection cracking, NCHRP 9-30A rutting, and the Lattice bonding model.
