Asphalt vs. Concrete: Selection and Design Considerations

Understand the pros and cons of asphalt and concrete so you can choose the best material for the job.

Today, asphalt and concrete receive equal consideration by engineers. Improvements in pavement technology have largely eliminated the ruts that once plagued asphalt and cracks that spoiled concrete. Choosing a material is a matter of economics that considers life span, maintenance requirements and road closure time. Learn the pros and cons of choosing each material; design considerations of each; cost factors, including an example of a life cycle cost analysis; construction techniques and limitations; and maintenance and troubleshooting each material.
