Highway Concrete Technology Development and Testing Volume IIi: Field Evaluation of SHRP C-205 Test Sites (High Performance Concrete)

Appendix A

Distress survey maps representing the condition of the various patches are presented in figures 25 through 40 in this appendix. The circular dots on the maps indicate core locations. The patches in Arkansas, New York, and North Carolina did not sHow significant deterioration over time. Therefore, for these sections, distress maps are provided only for the years 1994 and 1998. On the other hand, sections in Illinois and Nebraska sHowed more pronounced deterioration over time. For these sites, distress maps are provided for all the years in which field surveys were conducted.

Figure 25. Distress map for patch, test section North Carolina 1 in1994. The figure consists of a distress map which sHows location as length of pavement in feet on the Horizontal axis and the pavement width in feet on the vertical axis. The inspection date is November 22, 1994. Patches are located at 7, 11.5, 12.5, 13.5, 16, and 17.5 feet at a pavement width of 6 feet. At a width of 5 feet, patches are located at 16, 17, and 18.5 feet. At widths of around 4 feet, there are patches at 41, 42, and 43 feet. Around a location between 51 and 52 feet, there are four patches between pavement widths of 3 and 4 feet. Around a location between 57 and 59 feet, there are 9 patches between widths of 2 and 5 feet.
