Evaluation of Pavement Shoulders (May 1999, MPC-99-101)

In this study the researchers examined the effect of pavement shoulders on the safety and structural strength of highways in Wyoming. The costs of adding shoulders to various types of highways also was examined. The study consisted of selecting representative highway sections, collecting accident data...

 

This project used field and laboratory evaluations to study the possibility of incorporating bottom ash in asphalt mixes. A pavement test section was constructed for the field portion of the project. The laboratory evaluations involved design and accelerated testing of control and bottom ash asphalt...

 

This report examines the feasibility of using the thermal stress restrained specimen test to evaluate low temperature cracking in asphalt pavement mixes. Data were collected from laboratory and field evaluations. Various mixing, aging, and compaction methods were used to prepare test samples with materials...

 

In this study, the researchers evaluated the performance of asphalt mixes prepared using the Marshall mix design method and the Superpave level one mix design method. The Georgia Loaded Wheel Tester and the Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Tester were used to test the rut-resistance and low-temperature...

 

With rapid advancement in technology, it is becoming difficult for transportation professionals to keep pace over their career lifetimes. Continuing education programs are a way to help combat this problem. These programs are being pursued by departments of transportation and universities across the...

 

The feasibility of using the Georgia Loaded-Wheel Tester (GLWT) to predict rutting in the laboratory was investigated in this research. This research was performed in two phases. The first phase consisted of modifying the GLWT to handle 15.2 cm (6 in) cores, developing a laboratory compaction procedure...

 

State highway agencies throughout the United States use smoothness specifications to ensure they are providing the public with quality roads. Some state highway agencies even provide monetary incentives to contractors for building smoother roads. The effectiveness of such incentive policies, though...

 

Tourism is a very important industry to Wyoming. Understanding the trends of this industry helps the state provide tourists with an enjoyable, informative, and memorable experience. This study was designed to obtain information from Wyoming tourists to determine the main reasons for visiting, tourist...

 

This report describes a study jointly conducted by the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Department of Transportation to better understand how selecting an Mr value influences the thickness of an asphalt overlay pavement. The objectives of this study were to: 1) investigate the importance of several...

 

This report describes a study jointly conducted by the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Department of Transportation to examine the effect of construction Profilograph Index (PI) values on long-term roughness measurements of concrete pavements. The objectives of this study were to determine if increased...
