Reflective Cracking Of Flexible Pavements Phase II: Review Of Analysis Models And Evaluation Tests
StatisticsView Usage Statistics
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 techniques in Nevada, b) Phase II: Identify analysis models and laboratory tests, and c) Phase III: field verification of the selected techniques. This report summarizes the findings and recommendations of the Phase II of this research. The research effort documented in this report was directed toward identifying an analytical model(s) and laboratory or field test(s) that can be used to predict the resistance of HMA overlays to reflective cracking and predict their long-term performance.
