Performance of Aggregate Fillers in Stone Mastic Asphalt Mixture

Ratnasamy Muniandy & Salihudin Hassim



275 pages • 2019

This book was written as a reference book to explain the performance of various aggregate filler types and sizes in Stone Mastic Asphalt mixtures. Fillers are typically fine powders with particle size distribution in the range of 1-100 microns. They can be naturally occurring materials such as limestone (calcium carbonate), manufactured fillers such as carbon black or derived from industrial wastes such as fly ash and recycled fillers in the form of so-called baghouse fines that have also been frequently used. Mineral fillers in hot mix asphalt is an important component of the mixture as the design and performance of hot mix asphalt (HMA) concrete is greatly influenced by the nature and amount of the mineral filler in the mix, where an excess quantity of filler tends to increase stability, brittleness and proclivity to cracking. This book may be of great benefit to practicing engineers, academics and research students.

Critical Literacy and Self-Identity: Narratives of Incarcerated Female Adolescents

Noritah Omar



306 pages  • 2019

This book spotlights incarceration as an act of “compassionate intention” for juveniles. It narrates in detail a doctoral study which used narrative inquiry to investigate the construction of self-identity by incarcerated female adolescents involved in a story-telling program in a juvenile detention facility. A combination of critical theory, feminism, and the Islamic religious views of the researcher served as the theoretical and methodological foundation of the study.  The study highlights how the social and institutional surveillance which constantly framed the lives of these incarcerated adolescents tended to preserve their low sense of status and to undermine their sense of intellectuality. The study also shows how the participants’ self-identity constructions can be directly associated with critical literacy, thus providing a means for empowerment through narrative as a form of self-inquiry, a stage for confrontation, and a channel for personal revelations.
