Track 1- Presentation Title: Sustainable and Long Life Flexible Pavements: From Research to Practice
Abstract: Sustainability is an issue that today must be considered seriously in all structures. Sustainability may be described as a quality that reflects the balance of three primary components such as economic, environmental and social impacts. In the context of pavements, the term sustainable refers to a system characteristics that encompasses a pavement’s ability to: a) achieve the engineering goals for which it was constructed, b) preserve and restore surrounding ecosystems, c) use financial, human, and environmental resources economically, and d) meet basic human needs such as health, safety, equity, employment, comfort, and happiness.
