Bearing Capacity of Roads, Railways and Airfields includes the contributions to the 10th International Conference on the Bearing Capacity of Roads, Railways and Airfields (BCRRA 2017, 28-30 June 2017, Athens, Greece). The papers cover aspects related to materials, laboratory testing, design, construction, maintenance and management systems of transport infrastructure, and focus on roads, railways and airfields. Additional aspects that concern new materials and characterization, alternative rehabilitation techniques, technological advances as well as pavement and railway track substructure sustainability are included. The contributions discuss new concepts and innovative solutions, and are concentrated but not limited on the following topics:

- Unbound aggregate materials and soil properties 

- Bound materials characteritics, mechanical properties and testing 

- Effect of traffic loading 

- In-situ measurements techniques and monitoring 

- Structural evaluation 

- Pavement serviceability condition 

- Rehabilitation and maintenance issues 

- Geophysical assessment 

- Stabilization and reinforcement 

- Performance modeling 

- Environmental challenges 

- Life cycle assessment and sustainability

Bearing Capacity of Roads, Railways and Airfields is essential reading for academics and professionals involved or interested in transport infrastructure systems, in particular roads, railways and airfields.
