By: McGhee, Kevin KPublication details: Transportation Research Record, 2000Description: nr 1712, s. 86-92Subject(s): USA | Flexible pavement | Surfacing | | Evenness | | Profilometer | Laser | | Apparatus | Test method | 33 | 42Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1712Location: Abstract: In the summer of 1996 the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) initiated the pilot of a new special provision regarding the smoothness of asphalt pavement surfaces. This special provision is based on the international roughness index (IRI) and is administered with a laser-equipped South Dakota-style inertial road profiler. A critical assessment of the nontraditional equipment and methods used to administer the special provision is provided. Issues addressed in the critique include provision exemptions, the ability to identify and contend with construction variability, and peculiarities of the equipment that affect the ability of VDOT to administer a modern acceptance provision.
