Optimizing Concrete Pavement Type Selection Based on Aggregate Availability (FHWA/TX-13-0-6681-1)

Design concept and structural responses of jointed plain concrete pavement (CPCD) and continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) are quite different. In CPCD, concrete volume changes are allowed to a full extent, and accommodations are made to ensure good load transfer at...

Concrete Pavements in Virginia

Presented at the Route 58 Open House in August 2012. Presenter: Mohamed Elfino, PE, PhD

Structural Aspects of the Experimental Short CRCP in São Paulo

During the year of 2010 it was built the first continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) in Brazil at the São Paulo campus of University of São Paulo. It was originally intended to verify, for tropical conditions, the occurrences of...

Composite Pavement Systems – A Sustainable Approach for Long-Lasting Concrete Pavements

This paper summarizes work performed under the Strategic Highway Research Program project R21 on developing MEPDG-compatible mechanistic-empirical design procedures, test methods, and construction guidelines and specifications, for two-lift PCC/PCC composite pavements and HMA/PCC composite pavements. Composite pavements consisting of...

Ben Schoeman CRCP: Findings from an Accelerated Pavement Test on the Shoulder of a 23 year-Old Pavement

Findings from an accelerated pavement test conducted with the Heavy Vehicle Simulator on the shoulder of a 23-year old Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) are presented in the paper. The Ben Schoeman Freeway connects the cities of Johannesburg and...

Guidelines for Partial Depth Repair in CRCP (0-5549-P1)

Over the years, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has improved design and construction practices of Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP), which has resulted in good overall performance of CRCP in Texas. At the same time, the improved design and construction practices changed...

Rational Use of Terminal Anchorages (FHWA/TX-12/0-6326-1)

It has long been stated that Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavements can grow and push bridges, resulting in damage to bridge structures. To protect bridge structures from damages due to the expansion of PCC pavements, three terminal systems are currently used...

CRCP Workshop – Creating Long Life Pavement Solutions

Fresno, California, USA | February 22, 2012 Sponsored by: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) In cooperation with: Southwest Chapter, ACPA and California Department of Transportation This workshop presented the current practices in designing and constructing continuously reinforced concrete pavement. The workshop team...

Jointed Full-Depth Repair of CRCP (FHWA-HIF-12-007)

This TechBrief describes both conventional methods and an alternative method for making full-depth repairs in continuously reinforced concrete pavements. The alternative method, which does not utilize continuous longitudinal reinforcement in the repair area, is suitable for repairing a single lane (or two...
