Implementation of Pavement-ME for Nevada’s Conditions
In the last decade, evaluation and implementation of the Mechanistic–Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG) has been attempted by several highway agencies throughout the United States. Agencies interested in implementing ...
Compatibility of a Test for Moisture-Induced Damage with Superpave Volumetric Mix Design
This report presents recommended changes to AASHTO Standard Method of Test T283, “Resistance of Compacted Bituminous Mixture to Moisture Induced Damage,” to enhance T283’s compatibility with Superpave® volumetric mix design. ...
Development Of Specifications For Engineered Cementitious Composites For Use In Bridge Deck Overlays
Engineered cementitious composite (ECC) material is a high strength, fiber-reinforced, ductile mortar mixture that can exhibit tensile strains of up to 5%. ECC has a dense matrix, giving the material exceptional durability ...
Reflective Cracking Of Flexible Pavements Phase II: Review Of Analysis Models And Evaluation Tests
In 2006, the Nevada DOT initiated a three-phase research project to identify the promising techniques to mitigate reflective cracking in HMA overlays: a) Phase I: Review of literature and the performance of the various ...
Pavement Design and Materials Research 2003-2005 Activities
This report documents the workthat has been completed under the NDOT-UNR cooperative agreement for Pavement Design and Materials Research for the 2003-2005 time period.
Develop a PWL System for Dense Graded Hot Mix Asphalt Construction, Including Pay Factors
This research project developed a PWL system that the Nevada DOT can effectively implement on the construction of dense graded HMA mixtures. The PWL system includes pay factors that are based on pavement performance ...
Characteristics of CRM Binders and Mixtures Used in Nevada
The use of crumb rubber modified binders to improve the performance characteristics of hot mixed asphalt (HMA) mixtures have shown mixed results throughout the U.S. Some studies showed improved performance properties such ...
Development of a Joint Density Specification: Phase II - Evaluation of 2004 and 2005 Test Sections (Report 3)
The overall objective of this research was to establish the needed knowledge base for the development and implementation of a longitudinal joint specification for the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT).
Evaluation of Long-term Performance of Cold In-Place Recycling Pavements in Nevada
Cold in-place recycling (CIR) is one of the commonly used rehabilitation technique for asphalt pavements in Nevada. Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) has long been using CMS-2S emulsion for CIR projects and recently ...
Evaluation of Thermal Cracking Resistance of Asphalt Mixtures
The overall objective was to develop a comprehensive model for thermal cracking analysis of asphalt concrete pavements. The proposed model aims to remedy some of the recognized limitations in the current thermal cracking ...
