Reliability Assessment of Concrete Pavement Sawing
Traditional concrete pavement design sometimes realize on qualitative decision based on experience, with concrete pavement sawing operations representing a specific case in point. presently,...

Addressing Uncertainties in Flexible Pavement Maintenance Decisions at Project Level Using Bayesian Influence Diagrams
Bayesian influence diagrams are directed acyclic graphs used as a network representation for making decisions under uncertainty. These representation facilitate the assessment of coherent...

Pavement Network Level Management Using Micro PAVER
This paper presents pavement network level management using Micro PAVER with emphasis on pavement condition prediction modeling and annual and long range work planning....

Runway Rehab: A Case for CADD
Hired to design and monitor construction at Boston's Logan Airport, engineers at S E A Consultant's quickly realized that they would have to supplement their...

Traffic Mark Classification Using Artificial Neural Networks
A system using artificial neural networks to identify types of pavement marks and to rank their recognizabilities is proposed.The system stores different types of traffic marks; associates...

Manning's n From Experiments with Rainfall-Runoff on Portland Cement Concrete Surfaces
Experiments were conducted under artificial rainfall on Portland cement concrete (PCC) surfaces with variable mean texture depths (MTD) and slopes (S). Rain rates were varied up to 3 in/hr...

Simulation of Subsurface Drainage of Highway Pavements
An analysis of the drainage of a pavement system from initial saturation incorporates a realistic assessment of the drainable porosity of the base. This analysis indicates that if a granular...

Analysis of Pavement-Pipeline Systems After Cut Restoration
The placement of utility pipes normally necessitates many cuts and fills of the existing pavements. Integrity of pipeline and compatible performance of cut restoration and original pavement...

Washington State Pavement Management System
This paper provides a brief overview of the Washington State Pavement management System....

PMS Implementation: Guidelines and Lessons Learned
Pavement management has emerged throughout the 1980s as an accepted tool to assist engineers in planning their pavement rehabilitation needs. Boosted by the support of the Federal Government...

Application of Leading Edge PMS Techniques in India
In India there is a pressing need for an efficient system to plan highway rehabilitation and maintenance. A two year project has started in March 1993 to develop a Pavement Management...

Canadian Pavement Management Systems
A large portion of the investment in Canada's road system is in pavement structures. In the 1960's a coordinated national effort toward protecting the investment, through good pavement...

Using a Geographical Information System to Facilitate Implementation of a Pavement Management System
One of the challenges facing local government is the management of its infrastructure. An important part of this process is the development of a pavement management systems to protect...

Long-Term Pavement Performance Program for Years 1992-1997: A Strategic Plan
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) began operational management of the Strategic Highway Research Program's (SHRP) Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program on July 1, 1992....

Equipment Systems for the Commercial Production of Modified Asphalt
A considerable amount of research has been centered on various asphalt modifiers and their effect on rheological properties. As the paving industry is now focusing on high performance...

Validation of SHRP Performance Graded Binder Specifications Using Field Simulation Testing Equipment
The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) was initiated to improve the effectiveness of laboratory test methods in predicting field performance. European highway agencies are using...

How SHRP Reliably Predicts Pavement Performance
One of the important results of the SHRP Asphalt Research Program was to develop a comprehensive pavement performance model that reliably predicts rutting, fatigue cracking and thermal...

Pavement Repair Automation
Faced with aging and decaying road systems, continual downsizing of government staffs and increasing budget shortfalls, roadway maintenance needs some help. That help is on the way. It's...
