So Much Pavement, So Little Time
At its most basic, pavement management requires taking inventory of a pavement network, doing a condition assessment, setting up a database, then synthesizing the data collected for an...

Building Object-Oriented Systems for Diagnostic Problems in Civil Engineering
In recent years, rehabilitation and renovation of existing buildings and roads have grown to occupy a significant share of all civil engineering projects. Proper timing of rehabilitative...

Airport Pavement Innovations—Theory to Practice
This proceedings, Airport Pavement Innovations—Theory to Practice, consists of papers presented at the ASCE Specialty Conference held in Vicksburg,...

Cost-Effective Pavement Repair Materials
In 1990, as part of the Strategic Highway Research Program's (SHRP) initiative in the highway operations area, a 2 1/2 -year research effort was initiated to study the cost-effectiveness...

Modular Software for Editing Paper Drawings
Revising, tracking and storing large format engineering drawings has always been an expensive and complex problem for large industries. The management problem became much more complex...

Comparison of Multi-sensing Methods for the Detection of Cracks in Pavement Surfaces

Mathematical Modeling of Airport Pavements
Theories for analyzing rigid pavements are presented. The emphasis is on the choice of the proper models for the pavement and for the subgrade, and on the correct mathematical formulation...

Cost-Benefit Evaluation of Network Level Pavement Management
This paper presents a cost-benefit analysis prepared for senior management. It uses the Alberta pavement management system as the primary case, and the Arizona PMS system as the second...

Heavy Aircraft Damage to Rigid Airport Pavements
A theoretical solution is presented for the damage caused by heavy aircraft at the transverse joints in a rigid airport pavement. Large stresses in the subgrade generate significant permanent...

Programme Management in Highway Region
In the beginning of the 1990's FinnRA suggested decreasing resources for the Lapland highway district whereas the district felt that such a policy would have very harmful long term effects....

International Air Transportation
A New International Airport
This proceedings, International Air Transport—A New International Airport, consists of papers presented at the 22nd International Air Transportation...

Durability Failure of a Concrete Block Port Pavement
A concrete block port pavement began showing distress after 7.5 years of use. Initial repair attempts found extensive areas of deterioration. The concrete blocks were cracking, spalling,...

Investigation of a Concrete Blistering Failure
During construction of a concrete pavement at a military airfield, numerous small blisters formed on the concrete surface behind the slipform paver and were filled by the contractor using...

Forensic Analysis of a Two-Component Joint Sealant Using FTIR-ATR
Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy using Attenuated Total Internal Reflectance (FTIR-ATR) was used to chemically identify joint sealants obtained from an airfield pavement joint which...

The Diagnosis of Pavement Ills
The paper defines the 'health' of a road pavement in terms of parameters of serviceability, safety and structural integrity and defines 'illness' as any departure from 'healthy' values...

The Role of Nondestructive Testing in Assessing the Infrastructure Crisis
At present the role of nondestructive testing in the evaluation of infrastructure deterioration is an extremely limited one. In the Author's experience this is, in part, due to a reluctance...

The SHRP-LTPP Asphalt Resilient Modulus Pilot Study
A SHRP asphalt concrete resilient modulus pilot study was initiated to provide important supplemental information related to the AC Mr program. Initially,...

Pavement Surface Maintenance: Overview of SHRP H-106 Experimental Installations
The Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP) is currently conducting an experiment under SHRP project H-106 to evaluate the performance of various materials and procedures used in making...
