Survey of Airport Pavement Distress in Cold Regions
The most common pavement problems were associated with non-traffic related phenomena and included pre-existing cracks reflecting through asphalt concrete overlay (in two years or less),...

Stabilization of a Permafrost Subsidence in the Airport Runway at Bethel Alaska
During the construction of the extension to the Bethel Airport runway in 1969, it was necessary to construct a fill across a small gully. The subbase material in the gully contained some...

Reinforced Roads Bridging Voids
A mathematical model was developed to design a pavement section reinforced with a geotextile or related product to span a void. A full scale field test was conducted to verify the model....

A Thermal Analysis of Pavement Thawing
This research focuses on identifying the spring thawing period for the purpose of timing load restrictions on low to medium volume roads in frost-susceptible areas. Cases evaluated include...

Insulation Performance Beneath Roads and Airfields in Alaska
Evaluations of the long-term thermal performance of installations in Alaska for frost heave control have included sampling and testing of the insulations to determine the retained thickness,...

Shoulder Rumble Strips at Narrow Bridges
The highways in the United States have thousands of minimum design narrow bridges. Replacement of these bridges with current state of the art designs is not cost effective nor feasible...

Hazardous Events After Redirectional Collisions
The potential for hazardous events occurring to vehicle occupants after a redirection from a longitudinal barrier has not been adequately addressed. Very few studies are available which...

Problems of Spectral Analysis in Dispersion Tests
The use of dispersive surface waves and spectral analysis methods is new to the nondestructive testing of airfield pavements. Such tests are to determine whether mechanical properties...

Development of Second Generation Plasticized Sulfur Binders as a Paving Material
Plasticized sulphur is produced when melted sulphur is reacted with selected hydrocarbons to produce polysulfides. These polysulfides help retain a 'polymeric'...

Pavement?An Integral Part of the Terminal as a Container Handling System
A modern container terminal requires extensive areas of paving for stacking and moving containers, the provision of which often proves to be one of the most expensive single items, in...

Berth 5-6 Pavement Performance: Port of Oaklan
In 1978 the Port of Oakland commenced a project to demolish the old Berth 5, 6 & 7 break bulk sheds, portions of the wharves, and the warehouses behind, and to construct container...

Pavement Design for a Break Bulk Terminal Yard
This paper discusses the practical application of mechanistic pavement design principles for a proposed 8. 1 ha break bulk cargo storage yard that is part of the Port of Portland's...

Concrete Block Paving for Marine Terminals
This paper describes the application of concrete block pavements to marine terminals. The Corps of Engineers flexible pavement design approach can be modified to provide a conservative...

Roller Compacted Concrete Pavement for Marine Terminals
This paper describes recent intermodal yard paving projects at the Port of Tacoma, Washington which have utilized a relatively new paving process known as Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC)....

Construction Materials for Civil Engineering Projects
The materials of construction in use today have grown in number, increased in complexity, expanded in application and multiplied in utilization over those in use just a short time ago....

Asphalt Pavement Modifiers
Modifiers or additives to asphalt concrete pavements are being researched or marketed by many major chemical firms. Modifiers or additives are used to stiffen the asphalt in hot weather...

Pavement Design

Ports '86
Ports '86 had the theme of Innovations in Port Engineering and Development with keynote speakers looking ahead to Port Development in the 1990's. The program...

Parking Lot Gets White Top
The many-acre parking lot at the Valley Fair Mall shopping center in Salt Lake City, Utah is described. In 1985 the asphalt pavement was overlaid with concrete, making it one of the relatively...

Construction of Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavement
Roller-compacted concrete pavement (RCCP) is the product of a relatively new concrete paving technology in which a zero-slump portland cement concrete mixture is spread with modified asphalt...
