Development of Local Calibration Factors and Design Criteria Values for Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design

A mechanistic-empirical (ME) pavement design procedure allows for analyzing and selecting pavement structures based on predicted distress progression resulting from stresses and strains within the pavement over its design life. The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) has been working toward implementing...

Mechanistic‐Empirical Design and Details for CRCP

Presented during TRB Webinar Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavements - Part 2 on June 3, 2015. Presenter: Jeff Roesler  

CRCP Road Introduction


Innovative Structural and Material Design for CRCP (IL Tollway RFP #14-01)

With the reconstruction of the central Tri-State corridor (I-294) planned for 2020-2022, a concrete pavement with an extended performance life, minimal maintenance, exceptional smoothness, and superb concrete durability is required. Continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) offers these options and...

Investigation of Field Corrosion Performance and Bond/Development Length of Galvanized Reinforcing Steel

In reinforced concrete systems, ensuring that a good bond between the concrete and the embedded reinforcing steel is critical to long-term structural performance. Without good bond between the two, the system simply cannot behave as intended. The bond strength...

Evaluation of the Benefits of Diamond Grinding of CRCP: Final Report (FHWA/TX-13/5-9046-01-1)

This report outlines the testing and evaluation of a continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) on IH35W near Fort Worth rehabilitated using diamond grinding instead of applying an asphalt overlay to extend the serviceability of the old concrete pavement. Surface macrotexture, skid,...

Using Existing Pavement in Place and Achieving Long Life

The goal of this project was to develop reliable procedures and guidelines for identifying when existing pavements can be used in place and the methods necessary to incorporate the original material into the new pavement structure while achieving long...
