CRCP Forensic Investigations and Remedial Actions in Virginia

The key to attaining a long lasting, safe, and economical Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) or any other pavement is learning from its performance. Pavement performance is dependent on the characteristics of the materials, the pavement design, and the...

Impact of Existing Pavement on Jointed Plain Concrete Overlay Design and Performance

Concrete overlays are increasingly being constructed over deteriorated existing asphalt and concrete pavements. Designers struggle to consider the extent of deterioration of the existing pavement in the design of the concrete overlay. This paper addresses the impact of the...

Minimizing Reflective Cracking With Applications of the Rolling Dynamic Deflectometer and Overlay Tester

Since reflective cracking is related to both the existing pavement condition and the properties of the overlay material, quantitative methods are required to assess both the vertical movements of the cracks (or joints) for the entire project and the reflection cracking...

Assessment and Rehabilitation Methods for Longitudinal Cracks and Joint Separations in Concrete Pavement (FHWA/TX-09/0-5444-2)

Researchers surveyed DOTs in the U.S. and searched published literature for effective means of repairing and rehabilitating pavements with longitudinal cracking or longitudinal cracking. These methods included field assessment for determining the severity of the causes of the symptoms and procedures...

RN61 – Mons – Tournai Road – Bury Braffe Section: A modest renovation becoming a long life pavement

The Mons Highways Department has been researching and applying cement concrete road pavements for several decades, and one outcome of this is a particularly remarkable section of roadway which, after almost 40 years, still provides all the required characteristics...

Full-Depth Repairs

Presented at the CP Tech Center's March 20-21, 2008 Iowa Concrete Pavement Preservation Workshop. Covers procedures for cast-in-place full-depth repair of existing concrete pavements. The techniques for both jointed plain or jointed reinforced concrete pavements and continuously reinforced concrete...

The Challenging Rehabilitation of the Antwerp Ring Road in CRCP 2004-2005

 PDF courtesy of the European Concrete Paving Association (EUPave). The rehabilitation of the Ring Road of the city of Antwerp is the largest and most discussed road construction project undertaken in Belgium within the last decades. The Antwerp Ring Road...

Longitudinal Cracking Distress on Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavements in Illinois

The Illinois Department of Transportation IDOT initiated a failure investigation to determine the distress mechanisms causing premature longitudinal cracking on continuously reinforced concrete pavements CRCP on several Illinois interstates. The longitudinal cracking approximately followed the embedded reinforcement steel and...

The Rehabilitation of the Antwerp Ring Road in CRCP

The rehabilitation of the Ring Road of the city of Antwerp is, without doubt, the largest and most discussed road construction project undertaken in Belgium in recent years. The Antwerp Ring Road is one of the most trafficked freeways...

Assessment of the Uretek Process on CRCP, JCP, and Bridge Approach Slabs (Technical Assistance Report Number 03-2TA)

This study evaluates the rehabilitation method utilizing the injection of Uretek (polyurethane) into the pavement structures on continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP), jointed concrete pavement (JCP), and bridge approach slabs. The polyurethane injection was used to fill voids and level the CRCP...
