First Findings from the Kansas Perpetual Pavements Experiment
(Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, 2008)
To investigate the suitability of the perpetual pavements concept for Kansas highway pavements, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) constructed four thick, flexible pavement structures on a new alignment on ...
Experience with Thin Superpave Mixture Overlay of Small Aggregate Top Size in Kansas
(National Research Council, 2011-01)
Superpave® asphalt mixture with small (4.75-mm) nominal maximum aggregate size (NMAS) is a promising, low-cost pavement preservation treatment for rural roads. This mixture has the potential to provide a smooth riding ...
Comparison of Moduli of Kansas
(Transportation Research Board of the National Academies, 2010)
Currently, hot-mix asphalt (HMA) mixture design and pavement structural design are not fully integrated, although Superpave® asphalt mixture design is somewhat project specific. The objective of this study was to compare ...
Seasonal and Spatial Variation of Subgrade Response
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2000)
Temperature, subgrade moisture content, and Falling Weight Defleetometer (FWD)-deflection data were collected monthly on four asphalt pavement test sections in Kansas for a year. The subgrade moduli were baekealeulated ...
Field Verification of Superpave Dynamic Modulus
(Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering, 2010-05)
In the mechanistic-empirical pavement design guide, prediction of flexible pavement response and performance needs an input of dynamic modulus of hot-mix asphalt at all three levels of hierarchical inputs. This study was ...
