Chipsealing in New Zealand is a distillation of information from at least 80 years experience in New Zealand, compiled by chipsealing experts from throughout New Zealand. Many years of experience based on research and backed up by references have contributed to this book.
In New Zealand extremes of climate and landscape impose many constraints on road surface performance and present challenges to be overcome. Chipsealing techniques differ from the north to the south of New Zealand and there is therefore no 'correct' or only way for a chipsealing operation to be carried out. Experience and research are presented in this book so the reader can make their own informed decisions when using chipsealing technology.
This book is intended for those studying road engineering at polytechnic or university level and for those already in the chipsealing industry who want to broaden their knowledge, or those from another line of engineering to understand chipsealing in more detail.
