Les Giratoires en Béton (Roundabouts in Concrete)

Note: Document is in French and the below abstract was translated using Google Translate. In Belgium, as in many European countries, crossroads management is becoming usually organized by priority roundabouts, safer and more fluid. If traffic heavy and dense, the coatings...

CRCP Design and Construction Guidelines

Continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP) were introduced in 1921 when the U.S. Bureau of Public Roads built a CRCP section on the Columbia Pike near Arlington, Virginia. Since then CRCP has become standard construction practice in several States, including...

Project Level Performance Database for Rigid Pavements in Texas, Part II (FHWA/TX -11-0-6274-1)

Over the years, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has built a number of CRCP (continuously reinforced concrete pavement) experimental sections to investigate the effects of design, materials, and construction variables on CRCP structural responses and performance. Design variables include longitudinal...

Use of Dowel Bars at Longitudinal Construction Joints (FHWA/TX -11-0-6190-1)

The primary objective of this research project was to develop rational guidelines on the use of dowel bars in longitudinal construction joints (LCJs) for better-performing concrete pavements without potential longitudinal cracking problems. To thoroughly investigate the behavior of tied and/or doweled...

Develop Mechanistic-Empirical Design for CRCP (FHWA/TX-11-0-5832-1)

Currently, TxDOT uses the AASHTO 93 design guide for the slab thickness design of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP). The AASHTO 93 design guide was developed based on the AASHTO road test, where JCP (jointed plain concrete pavement) was the major...

Current State-Of-The-Practice for CRCP

Presented at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the Transportation Research Board (TRB). Presenter: Ted Ferragut, PE

Effect of Support System on Behavior and Performance of CRCP

Support systems including base and subgrade layers play a pivotal role in manifesting and maintaining acceptable behavior and performance of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP). In Texas, especially, use of non-erodible stabilized base layers have been recommended to prevent...
