Water Sensitivity of Asphalt Paving Mixtures
There are two mechanisms by which moisture can degrade the integrity of an asphalt concrete matrix: (a) loss of cohesive strength and stiffness in the asphalt film and (b) the failure...

Field Performance of Fiber Reinforced Concrete Highway Pavements
This paper reports the evaluation of field performance of fiber reinforced concrete pavements. The concrete was designed for a compressive strength of about 40 MPa. Steel fibers with hooked...

Montana's Approach to Reduce Asphalt Pavement Rutting
The Montana Department of Highways experienced premature rutting in some asphalt concrete pavements primarily on the east-west interstate in Eastern Montana. Montana participated with...

Effect of Lime on Asphalt Concrete Pavement Performance
In the early to mid 1980's, the Federal Highway Administration constructed 15 experimental field test sections in four states designed to investigate mitigating moisture damage...

Experimental Mixes to Minimize Rutting
This report describes the materials and construction details involved in the design and placement of four experimental mixes on I-95 (Richmond-Petersburg Turnpike) in 1985 and follows...

Curing Time for CRCP Mixtures Based on Flexural Strength
In this paper, the effect of different curing conditions on the flexural strength is investigated, and also the minimum required period for moist curing is found. The combined effect of...

Effect of Environment on Durability of Pavement Materials: An Overview
The best known causes of material degradation in pavements include environment, traffic loads, and the use of substandard materials. Presented in the paper is a critical review of the...

Environmental Considerations in the Design of Asphalt Concrete Paving Mixtures
The design of asphalt concrete mixtures is largely based on two empirical mixture design methods. These are 'Marshall' and 'Hveem',...

Feasibility of Class C FRP Load Transfer Devices for Highway Jointed Concrete Pavements
The objective of this paper is to analyze the feasibility of using corrosion free fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) devices in lieu of steel tie bars in the longitudinal joints of highway...

Application of Waterjet Cutting for Pothole Repair
A study was conducted to determine the feasibility of utilizing high pressure waterjet cutting technology as an infrastructure maintenance tool. The influence of waterjet cutting parameters,...

Lime-Fly Ash-Aggregate Base and Subbase Courses
This paper describes the use of lime-fly ash-aggregate (LFA) base and subbase courses for highway pavements. This type pavement course is considered as an alternate to cement treated bases...

Residential Streets
This book, Residential Street Design is a joint effort of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the National Association of Home Buiders,...

Serviceability and Durability of Construction Materials
The proceedings of the Materials Engineering Congress held in Denver, Colorado from August 13-15, 1990 include papers from 37 sessions that address the theme Serviceability and Durability...

Asphalt Age Hardening—Trends and Predictions
Pavement cracking is substantially related to the consistency of asphalt cement binders. The variation in hardness of binders is related primarily to asphalt characteristics, environment...

MECHOD: A Mechanistic Overlay Design Program for Flexible Pavements
This paper presents a fully mechanistic asphalt overlay design procedure for use on microcomputers. The procedure is based on fundamental characteristics of pavement layer properties and...
