Several types of tack coats are used in South Dakota for asphalt pavement construction projects. This study was conducted to determine the effects of application rate, surface type, texture, moisture, and freeze-thaw on the early-age performance of three tack coat emulsions applied on four surface types...

The need for improved bicycle facilities in rural communities is becoming more apparent, but the standard national bicycle design guide is aimed at different types of communities than those found in rural areas. Rural communities differ from mid-size and large urban areas in that they typically have...

This project studies effective configurations of self-centering devices in the seismic retrofit of curved bridges for control of longitudinal and lateral forces. Reparability of bridge columns is investigated experimentally. A seismic retrofit and repair technique using a Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer...

Concrete infrastructures in cold areas such as South Dakota tend to experience early deterioration that is mostly triggered by steel corrosion. The corrosion is initiated by chloride penetration through cracks in the concrete. Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) is known to be a good alternative to conventional...

Detector Technology Evaluation (Nov 2003, MPC-03-154)

This paper evaluates detector technologies under a variety of criteria and provides user guidelines for detector technology selection. Information for the project came from applications of detector technologies, detector technology development, user manuals about specific detector devices, detector field-testing...

On April 29, 1998, the Surface Transportation Board (STB) opened a proceeding to consider elimination of the consideration of geographic and product competition from its market dominance guidelines for rail rates. This publication includes the Verified Statement of John Bitzan and Denver Tolliver in...

This report covers the first year of a two-year study of unpaved roads. Maintenance and reconstruction models of unpaved roads are reviewed. These models are based upon empirical and mechanistic methods, and they have the objective of evaluating deterioration, roughness propagation parameters, scraping...

This report is for Transportation Institute personnel who write, type, mail, or are otherwise involved in publishing reports. Its purpose is three-fold: 1) to develop a continuity in style for reports produced by this office; 2) to give guidelines to new or experienced personnel; and 3) to enhance the...
