Reflective Cracking Model for Airport Asphalt Overlay Design
Reflective cracking in hot-mix asphalt (HMA) laid over existing jointed concrete airfield and highway pavements is considered as a major pavement distress. Reflective cracking mechanisms are complex due to intertwined effects of temperature and vehicular loading conditions causing intensified stresses in overlays.
Fracture Characterization of Polymer Modified Mixes for Applications in Diverse Climatic Region
Although cracking resistance research has been carried out extensively in other states, a large amount of the work is not immediately applicable to Arizona..
Impact of Automated and Connected Trucks (Platoons) on Pavement Deterioration Mechanisms
Automation technology offers numerous advantages to the trucking industry in terms of fuel savings, operational efficiencies and preventing fatal crashes.
