An evaluation of CRCP was conducted in order to determine the extent of possible corrosion of CRCP on selected interstates in South Dakota. General observations showed there were sections of severe and localized reinforcement corrosion at some crack locations. Crack mapping, chloride tests profiles...

 

This project discusses the performance of deteriorating double-tee (DT) girder bridges that have been in service for many years. This included field testing of two single-span DT girder bridges in South Dakota for live load distribution factors (LLDFs) and dynamic load allowance (IM). The LLDFs and IM...

 

The most common type of bridge on South Dakota local roads is a precast prestressed double-tee (DT) girder bridge. More than 700 DT bridges are currently in-service in South Dakota. Structural detailing, aging, traffic volume, and environmental conditions affect structural performance, integrity, and...

 

An experimental research study was conducted to develop optimized concrete mixtures for jointed plain concrete (JPC) pavements and field evaluation of newly constructed JPC pavement sections along South Dakota highways. Using South Dakota aggregates, different concrete mixtures were assessed for optimum...

 

This study presents the results of the most recent phase of laboratory research. The effects of support movements observed in the field test were examined by physical laboratory testing and computer-based structural modeling using AxisVM software [Inter-CAD. Kft, 2004]. The goal of this research was...

 

This research evaluates the effectiveness of hot-poured crack surfacing material and its ability to seal asphaltic cracks. The term "crack surfacing" is used to describe the rigidity of the material and to distinguish it from crack sealants. The University of Wyoming, in cooperation with the Wyoming...

 

A field load test program was conducted to evaluate three open-deck timber railroad trestle bridges. The bridges included part of a 31-span bridge, a 4-span bridge with skewed interior bents and a 3-span bridge. Plies of the chords of the bridges were evaluated non-destructively for material properties...

 

The field of transportation is rapidly becoming a popular career choice for undergraduate engineering students. Many work opportunities are available in the area of transportation including computer software analysis, field testing, and consulting. Unfortunately, these opportunities are not always accessible...

 

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...
