Fuel Economy Prediction Models for Vehicles Operating on Different Highway Scenarios
The HERS VOCs fuel consumption models use dates and are based on an unrepresentative database of the vehicle fleet and technologies currently used in the U.S. Thus the models were updates through several steps. First, ...
Oxidative Aging of Binders with High Recycled Asphalt Materials
The objectives of this research effort focused on the oxidative aging of binders with high recycled asphalt materials. A coordinated program of forced-draft oven aging experiments was conducted on eleven sorts of binder ...
Characterization of Unbound Materials for Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG)
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) adopted the Mechanistic-Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) as an interim pavement design standard in 2008. The Nevada Department of ...
Cold In-Place Recycling Mix Design, In-Place Density, and Long-Term Performance in Nevada
The objectives of this study were: a) analyze the impact of different variables on a performance based mix design method for cold in-place recycling (CIR), b) develop a practical method for CIR in-place density determination ...
Development of a Comprehensive Analysis Approach for Evaluating Superheavy Load Movement on Flexible Pavements
The movement of superheavy load (SHL) has become more common over years since it is a vital necessity for many important industries. Superheavy load (SHL) hauling units are much larger in size and weight compared to the ...
Mechanistic-Empirical Evaluation of Pavement Damage and Cost Attributed to Overweight Single-Trip and Multi-Trip Scenarios in Nevada
The movement of overweight (OW) vehicles has become more common over the years dueto its vital necessity for many important industries such as chemical, oil, defense, etc. UsingOW vehicles reduces the number of vehicles ...
