Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-11-0034
Project Name: Environmental Effects in the Absence of Heavy Loads, Specific Pavement Study 8
Status: Active
Contact:
Last Name:Springer
First Name:Jack H
Telephone:202-493-3144
E-mail:jack.springer@dot.gov
Office: Office of Infrastructure Research and Development
Team:Long-Term Pavement Performance Team
Roadmap/Focus area(s): Infrastructure Research and Technology Strategic Plan and Roadmap
Project Description:The contractor will review the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Program Specific Pavement Study (SPS)-8 experiment and conduct a study, using the data in the LTPP database, to identify and quantify the effect of materials, climates, and design on the performance of pavements in the absence of heavy loads. In addition, an analysis process will be developed so that States can conduct the research on their SPS-8 sites.
Start Date: April 20, 2011
End Date: April 20, 2014
Goals:
The objective of this contract is to review the Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) Program Specific Pavement Study (SPS)-8 experiment and conduct a study, using the data in the LTPP database, to identify and quantify the effect of materials, climates, and design on the performance of pavements in the absence of heavy loads. In addition, an analysis process will be developed so that States can conduct the research on their SPS-8 sites.
