Design of Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement with Heat Transfer System for a Bus Terminal in Hamilton

MacNab Street Bus Terminal is located between Main Street and King Street in downtown Hamilton and is primarily used as a transit terminal. An existing underground concrete tunnel structure is located beneath portions of the road. The proposed pavement improvements include the...

Horizontal Cracking in CRCP (FHWA/TX-11/0-5549-3)

Horizontal cracking (HC) at the depth of longitudinal steel in CRCP was not known until 1999, when HC was observed in the section on IH 35 in the Waco District. At that time, no prior research was done on this...

CRCP – Using Bamtec Rolls

 

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...

CRCP (Pavimentos de Hormigón con Reforzamiento Continuo)

Presented at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in November 2009. Presenter: Jeff Roesler

Evaluation of MEPDG with TxDOT Rigid Pavement Database (FHWA/TX-09/0-5445-3

TxDOT initiated the rigid pavement database project to collect information on the general performance of portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement as well as to collect project-level information on PCC pavement responses and performance. A total 27 sections were selected...

Horizontal Cracking Mechanism in CRCP (FHWA/TX-09/0-5549-2)

The purpose of this study is to identify the mechanism of horizontal cracking in continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP). To this end, a numerical model to predict the risk of horizontal cracking in CRCP was developed. Material properties and steel design...

Mechanistic-Empirical Design Concepts for CRCP in Illinois (FHWA-ICT-09-040)

The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) currently has an existing jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) design based on mechanistic-empirical (M-E) principles. However, their continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) design procedure is empirical and based on a modified AASHTO nomograph for jointed reinforced...

Use of Vitreous-Ceramic Coatings on Reinforcing Steel for Pavements

An innovative vitreous-ceramic coating for reinforcing steel that incorporates reactive calcium silicates from portland cement in an alkali-resistant glass has been shown both to increase the bond between the concrete to the reinforcing steel and to protect the steel...

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...
