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.

 

A field load test program was conducted to evaluate three open-deck timber railroad trestle bridges. The bridges included part of a 31-span bridge, a 4-span bridge with skewed interior bents and a 3-span bridge. Plies of the chords of the bridges were evaluated non-destructively for material properties...

 

The concept of combining wood and concrete in layered composite bridge deck was investigated. A shear key/anchor detail recently used in Europe to construct floors in office buildings was adapted for this study. This connection detail provides the interlayer shear transfer between the layers. Laboratory...

 

The field of transportation is rapidly becoming a popular career choice for undergraduate engineering students. Many work opportunities are available in the area of transportation including computer software analysis, field testing, and consulting. Unfortunately, these opportunities are not always accessible...

 

In certain regions of the world, designing deep foundations to withstand seismic loading is a reality. Seismic loading of structures and foundations reaches a critical state as a laterally applied force. The response of soils and foundations to repetitive lateral forces is highly complex, relegating...

 

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...

 

In this study, the researchers evaluated the performance of asphalt mixes prepared using the Marshall mix design method and the Superpave level one mix design method. The Georgia Loaded Wheel Tester and the Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Tester were used to test the rut-resistance and low-temperature...

 

Soils are an important component of any transportation structure. To improve the engineering properties of these soils, compaction requirements are included in virtually all transportation construction specifications. Field observations indicate however, that soils at near-freezing temperatures may require...

 

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...
