  • THE FIRST FULL-SCALE ACCELERATED PAVEMENT TEST IN LOUISIANA: DEVELOPMENT AND FINDINGS 

    Metcalf, J.B.; Romanoschi, S. A.; Li, Y.; Rasoulian, M. (1999)
    The Pavement Research Facility in Port Allen, Louisiana houses the first full-scale accelerated pavement testing experiment in the state. The purpose of the first experiment was to evaluate the historically prevalent ...
  • Seasonal and Spatial Variation of Subgrade Response 

    Hossain, Mustaque; Romanoschi, Stefan; Gisi, Andrew J. (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 

    Gedafa, Daba S.; Hossain, Mustaque; Romanoschi, Stefan; Gisi, Andrew J. (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 ...
  • First Findings from the Kansas Perpetual Pavements Experiment 

    Romanoschi, Stefan A.; Gisi, Andrew J.; Portillo, Miguel; Dumitru, Cristian (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 ...
  • Comparison of Moduli of Kansas 

    Gedafa, Daba S.; Hossain, Mustaque; Romanoschi, Stefan A.; Gisi, Andrew J. (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 ...
  • Development of Traffic Inputs for the New ME Pavement Design Guide: A Case Study 

    ​Momin, Shariq; Romanoschi, Stefan A.; Bethu, Sagar; Bendana, Luis (National Research Council, 2011-01)
    Vehicle classification and axle load data are required for the structural design of new and rehabilitated flexible and rigid pavements with the new Mechanistic–Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) developed under ...
  • Experience with Thin Superpave Mixture Overlay of Small Aggregate Top Size in Kansas 

    Rahman, F.; Hossain, M.; Hobson, C.; Romanoschi, S. (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 ...
