This document presents the continuous effort to develop mechanical tests that can relate to the expected performance of asphalt mixtures once placed in the field. During a previous research project, asphalt mixtures of different compositions were collected from different locations across the state of...

 

Asphalt mixtures were collected from seven field projects and distributed to different laboratories to determine their potential for cracking. Samples were prepared in the lab for testing at two conditions: low, in-service temperatures using the bending beam rheometer device based on AASHTO TP-125 and...

 

A study was conducted in which cores were taken from pavements three years after construction. The flexibility index (FI) of the cores, a parameter that relates to intermediate temperature cracking, was measured in the lab and compared to the known values of the same material obtained during constructions....

 

Moisture-induced damage (stripping) is a major distress in asphalt pavements. This study was undertaken to evaluate the effects of chemical Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) additives, Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), Anti-Stripping Agent (ASA), and hydrated lime on moisture-induced damage potential of asphalt...

 

Fourteen Thin Lift Treatments (TLTs) in Utah's Department of Transportation (UDOT) Region 2 were evaluated over a five-year period in order to assess their performance. Surface distress data was quantified using Pavement Condition Indices (PCIs), and Remaining Service Life (RSL) were estimated following...

 

An evaluation of the ability of the BBR (Bending Beam Rheometer) as a test to determine changes in the low temperature properties of asphalt mixture parameters was conducted, along with the possible implications of adopting this test for low temperature pavement performance. It was found that the creep...

 

To facilitate the implementation of Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide in Wyoming, this research investigated the relationships between subgrade resilient modulus (Mr) and the dynamic cone penetration and the standard penetration test results, selected three best subgrade Mr predictive models...

 

Conventional test methods for roadway compaction cover less than 1% of roadway; whereas, intelligent compaction (IC) offers a method to measure 100% of a roadway. IC offers the ability to increase compaction uniformity of soils and asphalt pavements, which leads to decreased maintenance costs and an...

 

North Dakota currently designs roads based on the AASHTO Design Guide procedure, which is based on the empirical findings of the AASHTO Road Test of the late 1950s. However, limitations of the current empirical approach have prompted AASHTO to move toward the new mechanistically based pavement design...

 

Field samples were obtained from cores taken from multiple roads around the Salt Lake Valley in Utah and prepared for BBR testing. The response of field cores showed that even though the same binder grade used in the region was the same, the resulting mixtures have significant differences in creep moduli...
