Infrastructure Research and Technology Strategic Plan and Roadmap|
|Project Description:||Develop guide performance specifications for jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) once outcomes from related studies are completed.|
|Start Date:||October 14, 2013|
|End Date:||October 14, 2016|
Further develop and field validate performance-related specifications for both asphalt and concrete pavements. This effort is intended to build off earlier Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) projects and the SHRP (State Highway Research Program) 2 R07 project, which focuses on performance-related specification. The objectives will be based on the outcomes from the hot-mix asphalt (HMA) (FHWA PROJ 08-0002) and jointed plain concrete pavement (JPCP) (FHWA PROJ O8-0043) studies. It will address some of the gaps identified as the products of SHRP2 R07 move into implementation.
|Test Methodology:||Specification development with field validation.|
|Expected Benefits:||Guide specifications for agency use.|
|Deliverables:||Name: Specifications for performance-related specifications (PRS) for asphalt and concrete pavements.|
Product Type(s): Research report, Draft standard, specifications, or guidelines
