Using SHRP Tests to Evaluate CRM Asphalt Pavements
During the recently completed Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP), there was insufficient time or funds to evaluate the inclusion of waste materials in asphalt paving mixtures. However,...

Future Improvements for Design of Flexible Pavement Structures
The first set of data analyses on the National Pavement Data Base (NPDB) derived from the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) activities have been completed. The results from sensitivity...

Design Implications for Concrete Pavements from LTPP Analyses
Among the original objectives of the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) study of the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) were the evaluation of existing design methods for pavements,...

Managing Alkali-Silicareactivity

An Evaluation of the Strategic Highway Research Project Packing Handbook
The objective of this paper is to present the use of the November 8, 1991 SHRP C-206 report entitled `Packing Handbook - A Guide to the Optimal Gradation of Concrete Aggregates'. The purpose...

Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Program in Japan
Japan's `Manual for Design and Construction of Asphalt Pavement' is based on technical results from the AASHO Road Test in 1960's. Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) is a much bigger...

Application Cases of Slurry Seal in Japan
In Japan, slurry seal began to be used for repairing asphalt pavements at around 1963, mostly for repairs of prefectural and municipal roads. In recent years, however, it has rarely been...

Condition Data Reduction for Pavement Management
A methodology is proposed for the identification of uniformly behaving deterioration regions of infrastructure facilities. Such `homogeneous' regions constitute the basic units that should...

Using Neural Network to Identify Pavement Structure Based on Radar Output
Knowledge of asphaltic layer thickness and structure are important in many areas of pavement management. Accurate thickness and structure measurements are needed throughout the roadway...

Early Field Experience with SUPERPAVE
Specific pavement studies of newly constructed, reconstructed or rehabilitated (resurfaced) pavement sections were used to provide an estimate of the relative influence of key pavement...

Changes to the AASHTO Guide for Design of Pavement Structures
At this juncture of the SHRP-LTPP program, it is appropriate to discuss the potential impacts that SHRP-LTPP results could have on the future AASHTO Guides for the Design of Pavement Structures....

The Proof is in the Pavement
A technique known as statistical quality assurance (SQA) lets DOTs quantify pavement quality by setting statistical guidelines for the work they will accept. SQA is a distinct departure...

Bonded Concrete Overlays for Rehabilitation of Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement
As a result of the 1991 Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA), significant funding is now available for the rehabilitation of the nation's Interstate highway system....

Morphological Analysis in Infrastructure Engineering
This paper presents applications of morphological image analysis techniques in infrastructure engineering. Emphasis is placed on pavement surface condition analysis and the classification...

Survey: Fundamental Pavement Crack Imaging Algorithms
Many algorithms for distinguishing pavement cracks from background noise are based on the geometric characteristics of noise, such as shape and size. The objective of this paper is to...

Mechanistic Design Models of Loading and Curling in Concrete Pavements
Determination of the critical bending stress at the edge of a concrete pavement due to individual and combination effects of wheel loading and thermal curling is very crucial to any mechanistic...

Finite Element Analysis of Slabs-on-Grade Using Higher Order Subgrade Soil Models
Incorporation of the two-parameter, Kerr and Zhemochkin-Sinitsyn-Shtaerman subgrade models into finite element code ILLI-SLAB is described. The two conventional idealizations, namely the...

Unified Constitutive Model for Airport Pavements
A unified constitutive model that allows for significant behavioral characteristics of materials and interfaces in airport pavement is implemented in a nonlinear finite element procedure....

ICAO's ACN-PCN Method and Aircraft-Pavement Interaction
Multi-wheel gear assemblies of future aircraft are not compatible with pavements rated in the ACN-PCN system given by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). The Aircraft...

Reliability-Based Analysis and Design of Flexible Airfield Pavements
This paper illustrates, a new reliability-based procedure to analyze existing pavements and design new pavements that is being developed by the U.S. Air Force. The procedure uses a rigorous...
