The edited, reorganized, and supplemented proceedings of an international symposium at the U. of Nottingham, England, April 1989. The focus is on current practice and recent developments in the use of crushed rock, natural gravels, and man-made aggregates in roads, unbound by cement or bitumen. Several general reports provide an overview. A keynote address introduces each of the sections, which discuss placing and compaction, drainage, and permeability, mechanical properties and durability, alternative materials (for example, steel slags, and waste material) design philosophy, specification and compliance, evaluating in situ performance, and conclusions and recommendations. Describes the pan-European standardization, and practices and specifications in France, West Germany, Italy, Portugal, Singapore, Scandinavia, the U.K., the U.S., and developing countries. Of interest to road designers, contractors, suppliers, materials engineers, researchers, and standards organizations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
