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...

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...

Motorists and wildlife are at risk when wild animals enter highways at access roads that bisect wildlife exclusion fencing. Cattle guards are common at access roads, but are ineffective wildlife barriers. Electrified pavement is an emerging technology previously untested as an ungulate deterrent. Our...

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...

Untreated native soil with high swell potential has been identified by the Colorado Department of Transportation as one of the major contributing factors in the development of premature longitudinal cracking and other pavement distresses in Colorado (Ardani et al. 2003). Unique regional factors such...

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...
