A laboratory test program was conducted on full-scale specimens replicating the main elements of a timber trestle railroad bridge chord. Previous field load testing had been done and was complicated by differing site-specific conditions. The purpose of the ongoing laboratory study described is to compare...

 

This research investigates moisture susceptibility of asphalt mixes; evaluates the effect of various numbers of freeze-thaw cycles on the mechanical properties of asphalt and determines if the Georgia Loaded Wheel Tester can be used to test for moisture induced damage.

 

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...

 

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...

 

This paper presents results of laboratory tests conducted to determine the effects of additives on the stabilization of unpaved road surfaces. Laboratory tests can be an efficient means of determining which additive will best stabilize a given unpaved road surface, but correlation between laboratory...

 

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...

 

In this research the feasibility of using the Georgia Loaded-Wheel Tester (GLWT) to predict rutting in the laboratory was investigated. The study consisted of modifying the GLWT to handle 15.2 cm (6-in.) cores, obtaining asphalt pavement cores from several test sites throughout Wyoming, collecting rut...

 

A research study was conducted to investigate the potential application of Intelligent Vehicle/Highway Systems (IVHS) technologies for reducing accidents on rural roads. After studying existing technologies, their present application to transportation, and approaches to identifying predominant accident...

 

This report describes a study jointly conducted by the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Department of Transportation to examine the factors influencing the determination of a subgrade resilient modulus value. The objectives of this study were to first, investigate the importance of several fundamental...

 

This project included two laboratory studies and analytical work dealing with T-beams comprised of a concrete flange connected to a wood beam plus plywood sheathing. Based on the experimental results of tests of 72 slip specimens and 4 full-scale layered T-beams, the mechanical behavior of different...
