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...

 

Since release of the MEPDG in 2004, many national and state agencies have been working toward implementation of the new pavement design guide through calibration and validation. In order to aide Wyoming's Department of Transportation in its push toward total implementation, this study developed a set...

 

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...

 

Current pavement design based on the AASHTO Design Guide uses an empirical approach from the results of the AASHO Road Test conducted in 1958. To address some of the limitations of the original design guide, AASHTO developed a new guide: Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG). This guide...

 

As more Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP) becomes available to use in roadways, The Wyoming T2/LTAP Center and two Wyoming Counties investigated the use of RAP in gravel roads. The Wyoming DOT and the Mountain-Plains Consortium funded this study. The investigation explored the use RAP as a means of dust...

 

Current pavement design methodology based on the AASHTO Design Guide uses an empirical approach based on the results of the AASHTO Road Test conducted in 1958. But limitations of the current guide led AAHSTO to publish the new Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG), which combines mechanistic...

 

In this paper, elevator trip generation equations are estimated from detailed facility, land-use, and highway traffic data in North Dakota. A trip attraction equation is used to explain the effects of elevator storage capacity and side track capacity on elevator throughput. Elevators are classified on...

 

The objectives of this initial study were 1) investigate the relationship between resilient modulus and R-value; and 2) develop a predictive equation for resilient modulus based on easily measured soil properties. Thirteen different fine-graded soils were investigated. Based on the test results, two...
