Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

Pavement surface characteristics are crucial for both safety and funtional quality of transportation infrastructure. The correct design of pavement coatings, together with adequate construction and maintenance processes, ensures good performances in terms of skid resistance, regularity, structural resistance, vehicle control and dynamics, drainage and prevention of aquaplaning, vehicle operational costs, and environmental sustainability.

Mechanical, thermal, chemical and/or physical properties and characteristics of bitumens, aggregates, asphalt or cement concrete, as well as rheological characteristics of these materials, can significantly influence road surface performance.

The availability of new natural and industrial resources and the opportunity to recycle materials or reuse by-products in road constructions have modified the approach to pavement manufacture. In addition, techniques and procedures for road pavements design and construction have been constantly improved in the last few decades.

Scope of the Special Issue is to present and discuss the most recent research advances in this field and to consider how these results allow to obtain better functional and structural performances of pavement surface coatings.

In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Pavement surface characteristics and performances;
Pavement design, construction, management, maintenance, and rehabilitation techniques;
Pavement management systems;
Pavement surface and subsurface drainage;
Pavement mechanics and pavement design;
Innovative design methods;
Pavement materials;
Pavement recycling;
Environmental issues, low-noise and sustainable pavements;
Pavement and surface testing;
Functional and structural evaluation;
Pavement-vehicle interaction and safety issues.
