This study evaluates a comprehensive experimental investigation to better understand the mechanical and deformation behavior of Wyoming bedrocks and therefore to improve the design and construction of transportation infrastructure. Fifty-six rock samples were collected from different locations around...

 

The 24/7 Sobriety Program is an intervention strategy mandating that alcohol-impaired driving offenders remain sober as a condition of bond or pre-trial release. The goal is to monitor the most at-risk offenders in North Dakota and require that these individuals remain sober in order to keep roadways...

 

This document presents the continuous effort to develop mechanical tests that can relate to the expected performance of asphalt mixtures once placed in the field. During a previous research project, asphalt mixtures of different compositions were collected from different locations across the state of...

 

A study was conducted in which cores were taken from pavements three years after construction. The flexibility index (FI) of the cores, a parameter that relates to intermediate temperature cracking, was measured in the lab and compared to the known values of the same material obtained during constructions....

 

Over the last two decades many researchers have focused on providing new ideas and frameworks that can help improve conventional bridge inspection practices; however, little guidance is provided for implementing these new ideas in practice. This, along with resistance to change and complexity of the...

 

Precast concrete construction has been proven to be very efficient in bridge engineering, especially in accelerated bridge construction (ABC), where precast concrete components are connected to save time and minimize disruption of traffic. Post-tensioned (PT) concrete structural elements, when combined...

 

Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) has only recently garnered attention as a new construction material in the United States. Despite being introduced in Europe nearly 20 years ago, CLT is still not used widely in North America. One primarily reason is because CLT is not yet recognized as a structural system...

 

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...

 

This project discusses the performance of deteriorating double-tee (DT) girder bridges that have been in service for many years. This included field testing of two single-span DT girder bridges in South Dakota for live load distribution factors (LLDFs) and dynamic load allowance (IM). The LLDFs and IM...

 

The Rocky Mountain Region has experienced considerable difficulty because of alkali-silica reaction (ASR) in concrete construction. Wyoming Department of Transportation was successful in using recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) on Interstate I-80 with limited ASR damage. Reusing concrete from demolition...
