Computer-Based Guidelines For Concrete Pavements Volume II-Design and Construction Guidelines and HIPERPAV II User's Manual
Primary Topic: Rigid Pavement
Description: Report will be of interest to those involved in concrete pavement mix design, as well as the design and construction of concrete pavements. This report documents the investigation, modeling and validation of the enhanced High PERformance PAVing (HIPEPAV®) II, a comprehensive, yet user-friendly software package. HIPERPAV II primarily incorporates a set of guidelines for the proper selection of design and construction variables to minimize early-age damage to Jointed Plain Concrete Pavement (JPCP) and Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP). It also determines the effect of early-age behavior factors on JPCP long-term performance. This report, Volume II of a three-volume set, is the Construction and Design Guidelines and HIPERPAV II User's Manual, which provides general instructions on the use and application of the HIPERPAV II. Volume I is the Project Summary documenting the efforts undertaken for the development of the guidelines. Volume III is the Technical Appendices, which documents the investigation, modeling, and validation of the HIPEPAV II. HIPERPAV II software program will be available on a CD, or will be downloadable from FHWA Web site http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/pavement/pccp/hipemain.cfm.
