Pavement Design And Materials Research 2007-2009 Activities
This report documents the work that has been completed for the 2007-2009 time period. During the two-years time period, summary and recommendation reports were produced at the completion of each task and were submitted to ...
Evaluation of Nevada's HMA Mixtures Manufactured with Terminal Blend Rubber Modified Binders
The objective of this research effort is to compare the laboratory performance of Nevada’s HMA mixtures made with rubber modified asphalt binders with HMA mixtures made with polymer modified binders. Two Nevada HMA ...
Effectiveness of Cape Seal Pavement Preservation Technique in Northern Nevada
This report presents the results of a research study funded by SOLARIS University Transportation Center. The research evaluated the long-term performance of cape seals with micro-surfacing and slurry seal in the Truckee ...
Standard Method of Test for Determining Thermal Cracking Properties of Asphalt Mixtures through Measurement of Thermally Induced Stress and Strain
This method of test is used to determine the thermal viscoelastic and thermal volumetric properties of field cored or laboratory compacted asphalt mixture specimens by measuring the thermally induced stress and strain ...
Variability Of The Moisture Sensitivity Of Field HMA Mixes
The objective of this study is to evaluate the variability in moisture sensitivity of lime treated HMA mixes that were sampled during construction from three projects located in the Truckee Meadows region.
Evaluation of Rehabilitation Techniques for Flexible Pavements in Nevada
The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) is responsible for the maintenance and rehabilitation of a large number of highway miles which fit within the categories of medium to low traffic volumes. The majority of these ...
Index-Based Tests for Performance Engineered Mixture Designs for Asphalt Pavements
There is a widespread recognition and desire need by agencies and asphalt paving industry to use performance testing to complement volumetric properties and help ensure satisfactory asphalt pavement performance. Accordingly, ...
Design and Construction of NDOT PG-Special Test Sections
In 2000, NDOT constructed three sections on I-15 in Clark county, Nevada, as part of contract 3000. The objective of the test sections was to evaluate the field performance of HMA mixtures designed with binders graded with ...
Impact of Construction Variability on Pavement Performance: Report II
The objective ofthis research was to evaluate the impact of construction variability in aggregate gradation, binder content, and in-place air-voids, on the performance of HMA pavements. The performance of HMA pavements was ...
