  • The Shell Bitumen Handbook, 6th edition
  • Shell has been at the forefront of bitumen technology for over 90 years, and continues to play a leading role in global bitumen research and development. The Shell Bitumen Handbook is an authoritative source of information on bitumen use in road pavements around the world.

    The Shell Bitumen Handbook explores the very latest technical trends within the industry. Compiled by an international team of Shell experts from Europe, Asia and the Americas, the 6th edition contains global examples of regulations, specifications and practice, highlighting similarities and differences between the regions and reflecting the fact that growth economies are adapting and developing new practices, specifications and driving research in this area.

    An established, renowned and vital source, The Shell Bitumen Handbook covers the manufacturing, handling and main engineering properties and specifications of both bitumen and asphalt technology, examining how they are designed, manufactured, tested and used. The book also covers the analytical design of flexible pavements – a field in which Shell is particularly well established – as well as surface treatments and certification.

    The Shell Bitumen Handbook includes reference to new and revised European harmonised specifications as well as new guidance on recycling, warm asphalt mixtures, foam mixtures, bitumen additives and certification schemes for bitumen and asphalt. There are also expanded chapters on the constitution and structure of bitumen, bitumen rheology, polymer modified bitumens, bitumen health, bitumen adhesion and testing of asphalts and surface treatments.

    The Shell Bitumen Handbook provides new and experienced engineers with accessible and practical technical content such as:

    • Global examples of bitumen regulation, specification and practice written by Shell experts across the world
    • Coverage of the properties, testing methodology and performance related issues of different types of asphalt
    • Information on the new standardised test methods to assess product performance
    • State-of-the-art methods for building longer lasting road pavements
    • Extensive referencing, enabling readers to discover more about subject areas and research topics
    • New and updated appendices to support the reference value of the book.

    The Shell Bitumen Handbook is an essential, comprehensive reference tool intended to be of daily use to civil engineers, laboratory and site technicians and operation managers, as well as students and researchers in pavement construction and maintenance.

    This book is due to be published on 15th December 2014. If you choose to place an order ahead of this date, money will be debited from your account immediately and the book will be despatched as soon as possible after 15th December 2014.

  • Practical Road Safety Auditing, Third edition
  • Practical Road Safety Auditing explores the systematic process for checking the safety of new and improved road schemes for the benefit of future road users.

    An effective Road Safety Audit ensures that all highways schemes operate as safely as is practicable by minimising the chance of future collisions and reducing the risk in their severity. The third edition of Practical Road Safety Auditing provides engineers with clear and comprehensive guidance regarding the new Certificate of Competency, launched by the Highways Agency as part of the new Safety Audit Standard in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges.

    Not only will a successful Audit help road users such as pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, bus users, equestrians and those with visual and mobility impairments, but an understanding and appreciation of an efficient Road Safety Audit will also improve design and evaluation processes for both new and existing road schemes across the world.

    This new edition shares the latest theory and practice from regions such as Europe, South East Asia, Australasia, the Middle East, Canada and the Americas, using real-life examples and case studies of successes and failures to enable the reader to apply best practice to their own road scheme.

    Practical Road Safety Auditing includes:

    ·         Up-to-date new research and control data from the industry to help readers carry out a successful Road Safety Audit

    ·         New Certificate of Competency requirements for engineers in the UK and a brief discussion of practice in other countries

    ·         Coverage of other types of design audits, including technical, cycle, pedestrian, mobility, Non-Motorised User Audit and Quality Audit

    ·         Current issues and legal implications of the Road Safety Audit process.

    Written by practising Road Safety Auditors, who between them have carried out over 2,000 Road Safety Audits, this book will teach, inform and guide all practitioners commissioning audits, those carrying them out, and those whose schemes are being audited.

    This book is due to be published on 15th December 2014. If you choose to place an order ahead of this date, money will be debited from your account immediately and the book will be despatched as soon as possible after 15th December 2014.

  • CESMM4: Examples
  • This book is due to be published on 28th November 2014. If you choose to place an order ahead of this date, money will be debited from your account immediately and the book will be despatched as soon as possible after 28th November 2014.

    This book provides a comprehensive range of examples of diagrams and bills of quantities based in Section 8, works classification, of CESMM4. The example bill pages illustrate the application of the rules of measurement in all classes of CESMM4. The diagrams include some helpful short-cuts for engineers and surveyors preparing bills of quantities.

    This edition has been published in a larger format to enable the diagrams to be more easily interpreted. CESMM4: Examples will undoubtedly continue the success of previous editions in providing quick easy-reference examples of the usage of CESMM4

  • Crossrail Project: Infrastructure Design and Construction
  • The construction of the Crossrail project began at North Dock in Canary Wharf in May 2009. Five years on, it is the biggest railway construction project in Europe and is one of the largest single infrastructure investments undertaken in the UK. It consists of 21 km of new twin-bore tunnels under central London and 10 new world-class stations constructed under the largest city in the European Union.

    Crossrail Project: Infrastructure Design and Construction (Volume 1) contains a collection of 36 papers submitted to Crossrail’s Technical Papers Competition between 2012 and 2013. Contributions have come from consultants, contractors, suppliers and third-party stakeholders involved in design and construction across the Crossrail project. The papers cover a multitude of disciplines including Ground Engineering, Sprayed Concrete Lining, Tunnel Boring Machine Tunnelling, Engineering Geology, Geotechnical Monitoring and Mitigation, Architectural Design, Operations and Logistics.

    As part of Crossrail’s legacy, it is incumbent upon the organisation to share its experiences and best practices with the rest of the industry and to showcase the skills of the personnel involved and the successful delivery of each phase of works. This first volume is the culmination of that experience.

    Crossrail Project: Infrastructure Design and Construction provides a valuable source of reference for current practices in design and construction of large-scale underground projects.
