Scrap Tires Used in Rubber-Modified Asphalt Pavement and Civil Engineering Applications

Energy Absorption of Failing Injection-Molded Rubber-Coated Glass/Nylon Composites

Performance of Rubber-Modified Asphalt Pavements in Cold Regions

Asphalt-Rubber Concrete—A New Horizon
The performance of asphalt concrete pavements is dependent to a large degree upon the rheological properties of the asphalt binder. Asphalt-rubber as a binder material extends the temperature...

Design and Fabrication of the Guideway Superstructure for the Miami METROMOVER
The guideways for the driverless rubber-tired vehicles are entirely aerial. As a result of severe restrictions on horizontal alignment and pier locations imposed by the downtown Miami...

Automated People Movers
Engineering and Management in Major Activity Centers
The high levels of interest currently being shown by a number of cities and special land uses indicates that automated people movers (APM) have established a secure position on the spectrum...

Base Isolation Concepts for Seismic Bridge Retrofit
Failures in past earthquakes have indicated three major problem areas with existing bridges. The first is the vulnerability of existing rocker and roller type bearings and this is coupled...

A Stress-Strain Analysis of Rubber and Steel Composite Bearings

Asphalt-Crumb Rubber Waterproofing Membrane
This report is concerned with laboratory testing and field investigations of a water seepage barrier consisting of asphalt cement and reclaimed crumb-rubber tire peel. The test methods...

Light Rail Transit in Pittsburgh, Pa.
A review of rapid transit planning and implementation in Pittsburgh with major emphasis upon the Port Authority's Early Action Program South Hills fixed guideway element....

Evaporation Reduction with Reflective Covers
Floating reflective covers appear promising as a means of reducing evaporation from open water surfaces. Eight light-colored materials were studied using buried and exposed wall tanks...

State of the Art - Urban Transportation Systems
Passenger transportation systems are divided into three groups depending on the freedom to move in various planes. Structurally guided (one degree of freedom) systems currently in operation,...

Calculation of Diameter of Stretched Rubber Gasket
In a watertight concrete pipeline with O-ring rubber gasket joint, the gasket is the sole element of the joint depended on to provide watertightness. An under-sized gasket could cause...

The Lewis Smith Rockfill Dam
The design and construction of a 300-ft high sloping-core rockfill dam is described. The bulk of the rock in the dam was placed in 18-in. lifts, sluiced lightly and compacted with four...

A New Rubberized Asphalt for Roads
Rubberized binders used in surface treatments and seal coat construction are tougher, reduce tendency of surface to crack and bleed, and improve aggregate retention; special rubber additives...

A Water-Borne Runway
Requirements for construction of runway for heavy planes; good solution is to increase flexibility of concrete layer rather than to increase thickness; use of shallow rubber water bags...
