Several types of tack coats are used in South Dakota for asphalt pavement construction projects. This study was conducted to determine the effects of application rate, surface type, texture, moisture, and freeze-thaw on the early-age performance of three tack coat emulsions applied on four surface types...

 

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...

 

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...

 

Due to the short construction season in Wyoming, contractors must complete many transportation projects on a tight schedule. Unfortunately, contractors often cannot create accurate schedules considering logical work ordering, reasonable productivity, and weather events. Inaccurate baseline schedules...

 

Motorcycle riders and passengers are much more likely to be killed or severely injured in a crash, and on average, about 15% of all traffic fatalities include motorcyclists. The study uses 12 years of motorcycle crash data (2008–2019) from Wyoming, and eight years of data from Utah (2014–2021) and...

 

This project aims to using eye-tracking technology to optimize work zone safety. First, a systematic literature review was conducted to present the background of its application in construction safety. In total, 81 publications were screened from Web of Science (WoS), Scopus, and American Society of...

 

Speed limits play a pivotal role in traffic safety on mountainous roadways. Due to Wyoming's unique conditions, designing mountainous roadways with appropriate design speeds is challenging. These roadways are characterized by adverse weather conditions and tight horizontal curves with steep downgrades...

 

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....

 

Several approaches are presented that allow for a direct path of image-to-analysis for the mechanics of structures using a combination of structure-from-motion (SFM) and the finite element method. Through these methods, conventional computational methods can be applied to models created from digital...

 

Stormwater runoff generated in urban areas can increase the risks of flooding and contaminate surface waters. Various contaminants carried by stormwater runoff can negatively affect the water quality of receiving water bodies. Many of the conventional stormwater best management practices are designed...
