Primary Topic: Rigid Pavement
Description: This report is one of a series of reports prepared as part of a recent study sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration FHWA) aimed at updating the state-of-the-art of the design, construction, maintenance, and rehabilitation of continuous Seinforced concrete (CRC) pavements. The scope of work of the FHWA study included the following: 1. Conduct of a literature review and preparation of an annotated bibliography on CRC pavements and CRC overlays. 2. Conduct of a field investigation and laboratory testing related to 23 existing in-service pavement sections. This was done to evaluate the effect of various design features on CRC pavement performance, to identify any design or construction related problems, and to recommend procedures tp improve CRC pavement technology. 3. Evaluation of the effectiveness of various maintenance and rehabilitation strategies for CRC pavements. 4. Preparation of a Summary Report on the current state of the practice for CRC pavements. Each of the above four items is addressed in a separate report. The following reports have been prepared under this study: Performance of CRC Pavements Volume I - Summary of Practice and Annotated Bibliography Volume I1 - Field Investigation of CRC Pavements Volume I11 - Analysis and Evaluation of Field Test Data Volume IV - Resurfacings for CRC Pavements Volume V - Maintenance and Repair of CRC Pavements Volume VI - CRC Pavement Design, Construction, and Performance Volume VII - Summary This report is Volume IV in the series.
