Inductive power transfer systems (IPTS) embedded in concrete pavement panels allow EVs to charge their batteries while in motion. Four prototype concrete slabs were constructed and monitored during high-cycle fatigue loading. After the fatigue tests, each slab was subjected to a static load until failure....

The purpose of this research project was to investigate and determine the reasons for premature deterioration of the geogrid-reinforced pavement system on the section of SR-10 between Muddy Creek and Emery, Utah. The statistical analyses and evaluations indicate that the structural design of the primary...

Asphalt mixtures were collected from seven field projects and distributed to different laboratories to determine their potential for cracking. Samples were prepared in the lab for testing at two conditions: low, in-service temperatures using the bending beam rheometer device based on AASHTO TP-125 and...

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...

Moisture-induced damage (stripping) is a major distress in asphalt pavements. This study was undertaken to evaluate the effects of chemical Warm Mix Asphalt (WMA) additives, Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), Anti-Stripping Agent (ASA), and hydrated lime on moisture-induced damage potential of asphalt...

Longitudinal joints in Portland Cement Concrete (PCC) pavement slabs require tie (dowel) bars to control joint opening resulting from thermal stresses. Inspections of PCC pavements by the South Dakota Department of Transportation using ground penetrating radar revealed that it is common for tie bars...

Fourteen Thin Lift Treatments (TLTs) in Utah's Department of Transportation (UDOT) Region 2 were evaluated over a five-year period in order to assess their performance. Surface distress data was quantified using Pavement Condition Indices (PCIs), and Remaining Service Life (RSL) were estimated following...

An evaluation of the ability of the BBR (Bending Beam Rheometer) as a test to determine changes in the low temperature properties of asphalt mixture parameters was conducted, along with the possible implications of adopting this test for low temperature pavement performance. It was found that the creep...

To improve the pavement design and construction in Wyoming, the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is adopting the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG). A full implementation of MEPDG requires the characterization of local crushed base materials. In this research, laboratory...

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...
