Application of SMA Technology in Georgia
In 1991, the Georgia Department of Transportation participated in a cooperative effort with the Federal Highway Administration to conduct one of a series of field evaluations of Stone...

A More Rational Approach to Pavements
It is the intent of this paper to demonstrate how purely probabilistic arguments can be used to formulate a rational (phenomenonological) model of the particulate media that comprise pavement...

Successful High Traffic Chip Seal Construction
Chip seal coats are used to extend pavement service life by reducing water and air infiltration and improving skid resistance. Application of chip seals is usually limited to low-traffic...

A Laboratory Investigation on Long-Term Performance of Asphalt Concrete Treated with Antistripping Additives
Asphalt concrete pavement is susceptible to moisture damage and the damage caused by repeated freeze-thaw cycles is a major problem. This paper summarizes a laboratory investigation for...

Overview of Permeable Bases
Drainable pavement systems consist of: permeable base, separator lyer, and edgegrain system. This paper focuses on permable bases. A permeable base must provide both permeability and stability....

Performance of Epoxy-Coated Steel in Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement
Two sections of interstate highway in central Oklahoma were recently reconstructed. On both projects, northbound lanes were reinforced with epoxy-coated steel and southbound lanes were...

Design and Construction of a Bonded Fiber Concrete Overlay of CRCP (Louisiana, Interstate Route 10, August 1990)
The purpose of this study was the design and construction of a bonded steel fiber reinforced concrete overlay on an existing 8-inch CRC pavement on Interstate 10 south of Baton Rouge,...

Forensic Analysis Techniques for Joint Sealants
Growing concerns involving the field performance of pavement joint sealant materials has illustrated the need for forensic capabilities in determining the cause of sealant failures. Methods...

Performance of Recycled Asphalt Concrete Materials in an Arid Climate
Recycling of asphalt concrete pavement is a common practice for highway agencies. In 1981, the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) constructed eight test sections in on experimental...

Physicochemical and Rheological Properties of Microwave Recyled Asphalt Binders
The purpose of this study was to analyze microwave recycled asphalt binders using Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC), Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), and Dynamic Mechanical...

Reliability-Based Design for Feeeze-Thaw Concrete
Observation of pavements in Iowa shows results from the test for freezing and thawing of concrete, ASTM C-666, is not always consistent with field performance. Similar concrete made with...

Innovations for NDT of Concrete Structures
The proposed paper presents three recent innovations for sonic and ultrasonic Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) of concrete structures which greatly increase the utility and speed of many...

Splice/Development Length Requirements for FRP Grids Used in the Structural Reinforcement of Concrete
The research presented in this paper program was directed towards determining development length and splice requirements for FRP grids used in the reinforcement of concrete structures....

Evaluation of Partial Depth Spall Repair Materials and Procedures
In 1990, as a part of a Strategic Highway Research Program project (SHRP H-106, Innovative Materials Development and Testing), an investigation was initiated to evaluate the performance...

Technology Issues for Enhancing Waste Material Utilization in Highway Construction Addressed by the SHRP-IDEA Program

Technologies for Utilization of Waste Tires in Asphalt Pavement

Waste Glass and Sewage Sludge Frit Use in Asphalt Pavements

Overlays on Deck
By the summer of 1993, a standard specification may be on the books for polymer concrete bridge-deck overlays—a high-tech rehab technique requiring a combination of plastic binder—such...
