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...

Evaluating the Use of Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Bars in CRCP (FHWA-HIF-09-012)

This TechBrief discusses the potential use of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) bars in continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP). Relative advantages and disadvantages of FRP bars are presented, and some specific considerations for the use of FRP bars in CRCP design and construction are...

Pavement System Suiting Local Conditions

Instances of early corrosion in continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) containing uncoated reinforcement has led the Ministry of Transportation Quebec (MTQ) to select galvanized steel as the standard reinforcement for subsequent CRCP projects. As part of continued investigations, the...

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...

Use of Glass FRP Reinforcing Bars instead of Steel Bars in CRCP in Quebec

In North America, there is a persistent problem of the deterioration of steel-reinforced concrete which has limited the service life and increased the maintenance cost of such structures. The first Canadian continuous reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) built on a...

Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement with SMA Coating – The Composite Structure for the Challenges of the Future

Concrete carriageways can in principle be made in two versions: As continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) or as non-reinforced slabs with transverse joints at regular distances. To date, Germany has focused on the slab construction type. It was continuously...

A Double-Layered CRCP: Experiences on the E34 Near Antwerp (Belgium)

The technique of double-layered concrete or two-lift paving is applied either to obtain a high-quality top layer, to use lower quality materials in the lower lift, or for both reasons at the same time. In Europe this technique is...

Ultra Thin Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement Development in South Africa

Ultra thin continuously reinforced concrete pavements (UTCRCP), in literature also referred to as Ultra Thin Heavy Reinforced High Performance Concrete (UTHRHPC), have been used in Europe successfully as a rehabilitation measure on steel bridge decks and reported on at...
