IS-137 Hot Mix Asphalt for Quality Railroad And Transit Trackbeds (Second Edition)

The Asphalt Institute, in conjunction with Dr. Jerry Rose of the University of Kentucky, has updated its Asphalt in Railway Roadbeds, (Third Edition). It discusses hot mix asphalt underlayments and full depth asphalt overlayments-their advantages over all-granular ballast systems, practices and designs, mixture composition, and design criteria. It also identifies how asphalt underlayments and full depth asphalt overlayments can enable modern track construction and rehabilitation to meet today's surface requirements of high-speed, special-car, and high-wheel-load freight and passenger service. It is a valuable reference for civil engineers, and anyone working in the rail industry who is involved in the design of railroad and transit trackbeds; Illustrated, 10 pages - $10.00
