A State-of-the-Art Guide to the Mechanics of Asphalt ConcreteMechanics of Asphalt systematically covers both the fundamentals and most recent developments in applying rational mechanics, microstructure characterization methods, and numerical tools to understand the behavior of asphalt concrete (AC).

The book describes the essential mathematics, mechanics, and numerical techniques required for comprehending advanced modeling and simulation of asphalt materials and asphalt pavements.

Filled with detailed illustrations, this authoritative volume provides rational mechanisms to guide the development of best practices in mix design, construction methods, and performance evaluation of asphalt concrete. Mechanics of Asphalt covers:Fundamentals for mathematics and continuum mechanicsMechanical properties of constituents, including binder, aggregates, mastics, and mixturesMicrostructure characterizationExperimental methods to characterize the heterogeneous strain fieldMixture theory and micromechanics applicationsFundamentals of phenomenological modelsMultiscale modeling and moisture damageModels for asphalt concrete, including viscoplasticity, viscoplasticity with damage, disturbed state mechanics model, and fatigue failure criteriaFinite element method, boundary element method, and discrete element methodDigital specimen and digital test-integration of microstructure and simulationSimulation of asphalt compactionCharacterization and modeling of anisotropic properties of asphalt concrete
