Special Issue "Sustainable Pavement Materials, Design and Construction"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 January 2020.
Interests: materials; pavements; roads; railways; transportation; sustainability; civil engineering
Sustainability has become an integral part of most activities carried out in society today. Because of this, the pavement construction sector (one of the principal sectors in the field of civil engineering and, in turn, a major consumer of fossil fuels and natural resources and a notable producer of greenhouse gases) is currently seeking ways to reuse wastes and to reduce the economic and environmental impacts that its activities cause. This Special Issue is looking for papers that show the latest steps carried out in the pavement engineering sector to achieve more sustainable materials, design and construction procedures (which could lead to an efficient management of natural resources and foment the development of techniques that permit the reuse of wastes and reduce contaminant emissions). Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.
