Calibration of the AASHTO MEPDG for Flexible Pavements to Fit Nevada's Conditions
The Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) consists of transferring pavement mechanical responses such as stresses and strains into predicted distresses. The nationally calibrated models for rutting, bottom-Up ...
Design of Cold-In-Place Recycling using Superpave gyratory compactor
The main objective of this study is to validate the proposed performance based seven step mix design procedure for Cold-In-Place Recycling using RAP from different sources and to evaluate the mechanical characteristics and ...
Evaluation of Thin Asphalt Overlays for Pavement Preservation in Nevada
Over the last 35 years, state highway agencies changed their emphasis from the construction of new roads to the maintenance and rehabilitation of existing infrastructures. As a routine pavement maintenance and preservation ...
Evaluation of Thermal Oxidative Aging Effect on the Rheological Performance of Modified Asphalt Binders
Modified asphalt binder, which is combined by base binder and additive modifier, has been implemented in pavement industry for more than 30 years. Recently, the oxidative aging mechanism of asphalt binder has been studied ...
Development of Specifications for Modified Engineered Cementitious Composites (MECC) for use as Bridge Deck Overlays in Nevada
Engineered cementitious composite (ECC) material is a high-strength, fiber-reinforced, ductile mortar mixture that can exhibit tensile strains of up to 5%. The durability and mechanical properties of ECC make it a desirable ...
Evaluation of Warm Mix Additives for Use in Modified Asphalt Mixtures
The purpose of this research effort was to evaluate the use of warm-mix additives with modified (polymer-modified and terminal blend tire rubber) asphalt mixtures from Nevada and California. This research was completed in ...
