Development of some performance-based material specifications for high-performance concrete pavement Rangaraju, Prasada Rao

By: Publication details: Transportation Research Record, 2003Description: nr 1834, s. 69-76Subject(s): Bibl.nr: VTI P8169:2003 Ref ; VTI P8167Location: Abstract: In collaboration with the Federal Highway Administration, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) has successfully completed its first experimental high-performance concrete pavement (HPCP) project under the Testing and Evaluation Program (TE-30). This project is one of the 22 projects funded under the TE-30 Program. With a structural design life of 60 years, this HPCP is unique in that it incorporates significant changes to the existing Mn/DOT specifications on concrete materials. Some of the new materials-related specifications developed as a part of this project are based on performance criteria that influence long-term durability of the pavement structure. The background and considerations for selecting the new performance measures are discussed, and test results are presented that evaluate the practical feasibility of establishing and achieving the performance specifications.
