As roundabouts become increasingly popular, and as many communities promote bicycle use, the safety of roundabouts for people bicycling is of major concern. In this project, we studied bicyclists' safety perceptions of and preferences for roundabouts with different characteristics. First, we performed...

 

This report documents the effort to develop a practical relation between the cracking tolerance index and portions of the dynamic modulus curves of asphalt mixtures. A review of practices used to create asphalt mixtures dynamic modulus master curves, based on NCHRP reports and other relevant literature...

 

Built-up plate girders are considered a viable solution for long-span bridges due to their ability to meet the requirements for deflection limits. They are made up of flanges, webs, and stiffeners, which are typically welded together. The webs in plate girders are relatively thin, which requires the...

 

Maintenance costs, while significant throughout the life-cycle of a project, may sometimes not receive full consideration as inputs to design decisions. In Phase I, this project identified research priorities in coordination with the technical advisory committee (TAC) after recommendations were formulated...

 

According to the 2017 ASCE Infrastructure Report Card (ASCE 2017), 9.1% of the U.S. bridges are structurally deficient. The majority of deficient bridges are in service on low-traffic volume roads, and these bridges should be replaced or repaired for public safety in a timely manner. As an alternative...

 

A new method for building seismically resilient bridges is proposed using accelerated bridge construction (ABC) methods. The hybrid two-column bridge bent consists of post-tensioned precast concrete columns with a buckling restrained brace (BRB) as an external energy dissipation device. The design of...

 

Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) driving features can impact traffic safety in many aspects owing to their improved driving behavior. On the other hand, road geometric design elements are mainly based on human reactions and behavior, which might affect safety depending on road layout and the parties...

 

This study aims to improve the efficiency of driven piles in intermediate geomaterials (IGMs) to increase the reliability of pile foundations for bridge structures. Test pile data collected from the seven state DOTs and total 223 pile load test data are evaluated to provide recommendations for driven...

 

The use of precast concrete in bridge construction has been abundant in recent years because of its efficiency and superior quality control. Precast components are connected at the bridge site to reduce construction time and traffic disturbance. The Grouted Splice Sleeve (GSS) connection provides good...

 

This study evaluates two versions of the new super diverging diamond interchange (Super DDI) design as a possible alternative to improve the performance of failing service interchanges in the Denver, Colorado, metro. Three interchanges, Interstate 225 and Mississippi Ave, Interstate 25 and 120th Ave...
