Highway Engineering Handbook

The infrastructure of roads, bridges, dams, and levees throughout the United States is aging. Maintaining and improving these structures is one of the biggest and most expensive challenges facing our nation. This handbook provides broad background information about our nation's infrastructure, including the standards and techniques required for effective and cost-conscious design, maintenance, repair, and rebuilding. It also highlights new engineering developments and materials that may be involved in evolving transportation engineering processes. This handbook is filled with images, schematics, tables, charts, designs, equations, and other useful references for highway engineers or advanced students.

This book can be found in HECSA Library:
