The papers contained herein show that there is now an increasingly detailed understanding of both the fundamentals of unbound aggregate material behaviour and of its performance in practice. Coverage includes mechanical and hydraulic behaviour, specification, testing in the laboratory and in-situ, performance records and advanced material modelling. The papers were first presented at the 5th Unbound Aggregates in Roads Symposium in Nottingham, England in June 2000.
