Economic Analysis of Local Highway Maintenance
This paper presents a computer program which uses the present worth of life-cycle costs as a basis to select the most cost-effective maintenance strategy to apply to local highway pavements....

A Microcomputer Based Pavement Design Program
This paper describes a newly developed pavement design program. The performance of a number of pavement structures are projected over the analysis period. Structurally adequate designs...

Interfacing Pavement Management and Design Process
Pavement management systems coordinate all the activities required to provide pavements for the traveling public in a cost efficient manner. Information for the pavement management system...

The Use of Prototyping and Graphical Methods for Road Information and Management Systems
Graphics approaches to Pavement Management Systems offer a substantial aid to the early acceptance of and accessibility to the Road Information Systems presently available. The Apple Macintosh...

Structuring a Microcomputer Based Pavement Management System to Enhance the Probability of Adoption and Continued Use
Diffusion of innovation concepts were used to help structure a microcomputer based pavement management system (PMS) for use by local agency public works personnel in the San Francisco...

Expert System for Flexible Pavement Management Using Lotus 1-2-3
The paper shows how a spreadsheet, LOTUS 1-2-3, can be used in developing expert systems without using any other software. The application program is for selecting a dominant maintenance...

Lapsize Computers and Local Pavement Management
The purpose of this study is to examine the use of a portable computer, the GRIDcase Plus, in local pavement management. A software program in BASIC is developed to run on the GRID, to...

Road Surface Management System for Small to Midsized Communities
This paper describes a Road Surface Management Systems (RSMS) developed by the New Hampshire Technology Transfer Center. Subjects covered include RSMS components, road inventories, repair...

Pavement Inventory and Evaluation Systems Using Microcomputer Data Base Managers
The two most commonly used relational DBMS (Data Base Management System) softwares are Ashton-Tate's 'dBASE III Plus', and Microrim's 'R:Base 5000'. This paper illustrates the use of these...

Pollution Abatement in Tokyo Ess

Sediment Production from Forest Roads with Wheel Ruts
Artificial rainfall was applied to two sets of paired plots 30.5 m long by 1.52 m wide, each set on a different soil type. One plot in each set contained a wheel rut while the other did...

Asphalt in the U.S. Transportation Infrastructure
Asphalt has been the major pavement material responsible for development of the transportation infrastructure enjoyed by American citizens. This paper addresses issues to be monitored...

Large Stone Hot Mix Asphalt: State of the Art
Improved mix characteristics can be achieved by utilizing existing well-known technologies. Developments have included: more attention to voids in mineral aggregate criteria; adjusting...

Comparative Evaluation of 4-Inch and 6-Inch Diameter Specimens for Testing Large Stone Asphalt Mixes
Modified Marshall equipment and Gyratory Testing Machine (GTM) are now available for compacting and testing 6-inch diameter specimens to accommodate aggregate up to 2-inch maximum size....

Effects of Physicochemical Factors on Asphalt Aging
A new model for asphalt oxidative aging is presented. The model proposes that the kinetics of low temperature aging in the pavement temperature range is largely governed by physicochemical...

Premature Failures of Outdoor Masonry Pavements
The authors have investigated and repaired a number of premature inservice failures of masonry paving systems in recent years. These systems have become common, built over underground...

Asphalt Cement Specifications and HMA Performance
The standard specifications generally used for hot mix asphalt (HMA) are those published by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) or the American Association of State Highway...

Material Properties Related to Pavement Performance
As part of the Strategic Highway Research Program, an effort has been made to review research literature which can be used to relate asphalt properties to pavement performance. This report...
