Very good knowledge given to understand the elementary essential basics of bituminous binders. The binding mechanism was also well explained in the course, also few major tests as per EN were discussed and revealed the significance of the same. Almost all the preliminary knowledge essential were provided. I recommend this course for all the professors, students and practitioners in the area of bituminous pavement.
