This volume highlights a range of pressing research issues in natural construction materials. It is of direct relevance to the civil engineering industry, which faces growing pressures to sustain the natural and built environment while demanding a standardized high-quality construction product across Europe. Advances In Aggregates And Armourstone Evaluation provides an authoritative selection of research papers including overviews and case histories. The book examines a range of aggregate and armourstone specifications and new tests, including clear examples of how the statistical significance of test results can affect producers and users. Papers on rock source evaluation procedures and the opening of a new quarry are of particular practical value to engineering geologists serving the extractive industries. In addition, construction material availability, future demand and sustainability are examined, emphasizing new data for marine sand and gravel, armourstone, shingle durability, and concrete made from alternative aggregates. The book contains North American and European research with international relevance. It will stimulate new ideas that feedinto the best practice of tomorrow's engineering geologists.
