About the Edition

State Highway Departments and local street and road agencies are currently faced with aging highway systems and a need to extend the life of some of the pavements. The agency engineer should have the opportunity to explore the use of multiple surface types in the selection of a preferred rehabilitation strategy. This study was designed to look at the portland cement concrete overlay alternatives and especially the design of overlays for existing composite (portland cement and asphalt cement concrete) pavements.

Most of the rigid pavements constructed before the mid ’s did not include a tied concrete shoulder. Until , the AASHTO Guide for the Design of Pavement Structures did not consider or give credit for the inclusion of a tied concrete shoulder. Rarely were tied concrete shoulders incorporated in the pavement design. inhibit bond with the existing surface. Direct overlays of concrete over concrete will require that joints in the resurfacing match joint locations in the base pavements to prevent reflection cracks from occurring over these joints. The existing slab cannot have extensive surface distress and .   Addressing the interactions between the different design and construction variables and techniques this book illustrates best practices for constructing economical, long life concrete pavements. The book proceeds in much the same way as a pavement construction project. First, different alternatives for concrete pavement solutions are outlined. Unbonded CRCP overlay uses the same design procedure as new CRCP pavements. This use of unbonded CRCP overlay can be credited for contributing to the structural capacity of the existing concrete pavement and results in a thinner concrete pavement design than required for CRCP constructed on a new location.

Existing design procedures for portland cement concrete overlays deal primarily with an existing asphaltic concrete pavement with an underlying granular base or stabilized base. This study reviewed those design methods and moved to the development of a design for overlays of composite pavements.

This design guide is designed to assist in the decision-making process concerning the widening of flexible pavements. It offers some recommended investigative and construction alternatives for widening given different case scenarios and should serve as a general guideline in that regard.

CRCP is the preferred concrete pavement type for new construction and concrete overlays for TI ≥ in all climate regions except High Mountain and High Desert. It may also be used for widening and replacement of existing lanes where there is adequate space to construct.

One method used by several counties in Minnesota is the construction of a bituminous-stabilized layer by adding several inches of new.

A flowchart is presented in Chapter 54 (Figure A) that will assist in determining the. phases of a widening project. Pre-Design Evaluation Pavement widening requires a careful evaluation of the existing and proposed new widened pavement structures to ensure adequate performance under expected traffic loads, provide a consistent foundation across new and existing pavements, and perpetuate pavement drainage.

designed and constructed concrete overlays provide excellent performance, in many cases extending the life of existing pavements for an additional 30 years or more. Reasons to consider a concrete overlay solution include the following: 1.

Concrete overlays are not only a durable rehabilitation tool; they can also be a cost-effective maintenance. Thin whitetopping (TWT) is a 4- to 7-in. thick concrete overlay bonded to an existing asphalt concrete pavement (ACP) to create a composite section (see Figure ).

TWT is constructed normally at intersections where rutting and shoving in asphalt pavement continue to cause problems. of the design procedures, including new and rehabilitation pavement designs. The section on Geotechnical Design provides relevant routine geotechnical design information. The Deliverables and Report section ties all of the analysis and design together to ensure design recommendations are properly transferred to construction.

Evaluations of Existing Pavements • Evaluation is also used to determine: Required repairs where needed Establish the concrete overlay design thickness When combined with an overlay can the existing pavement help carry anticipated traffic as: an integrated part of the pavement (bonded) -or serve as a base or subbase (unbonded).

This second edition of Concrete Pavement Design, Construction, and Performance provides a solid foundation for pavement engineers seeking relevant and applicable design and construction instruction. It relies on general principles instead of specific ones, and incorporates illustrative case studies and prime design examples to highlight the material.

Construction Of Continuously Reinforced Continuously reinforced concrete pavements (CRCP) is a type of concrete pavement that does not require any transverse contraction joints. Transverse cracks are expected in the slab, usually at intervals of - 6 ft ( - m).

CRCP designs generally cost more than JPCP or JRCP designs initially due. Concrete Mix Design ♦ Bonded Concrete Overlay (BCO) Procedures This chapter provides a general overview of the equipment and procedures involved in the construction flexible pavements.

The equipment includes hot-mix plant operations, trucks, placement equipment, and. Decide whether the new concrete overlay is a bonded or unbonded system based on the existing conditions and pavement design inputs.

Use the Residual Strength Estimator tool to determine the FRC’s residual strength (f ) and effective flexural strength (f eff) (see Figure 3). Design the concrete overlay thickness in a pavement.

Bonded Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Pavements (BCOA) 5 2. Pre-Design Activities Once it is determined that the BCOA is a good rehab alternative, there are several pre-design activities that should be performed prior to designing the overlay.

These activities are described below. Gather Historical Records for Existing Pavement. Chapter 7: Flexible Pavement Rehabilitation Anchor: #i Section 1: Overview Anchor: #i Introduction.

Developing a rehabilitation design generally requires extensive investigation into the condition of the existing pavement structure, performance history, and laboratory testing of materials to establish suitability of existing and proposed materials for use in the.

The nominated design subgrade CBR for the widening may be lower than that of the existing pavement given the likelihood of pneumatic conditioning of the existing subgrade under extended traffic The traffic loading may have increased since the date of the construction of the existing pavement, resulting in an increased pavement thickness.

If the steel serves its proper function and keeps cracks from widening, aggregate interlock is preserved and concrete stresses in the concrete slab due to traffic loading are reduced.

The CRCP thickness design is detailed in Section 2, Approved Design Method, and Section 3, Rigid Pavement Design Process for CRCP. Concrete Pavements, Design and Construction of Johts for Concrete Streets, and Suggested Specifications for Construction of Concrete Streets, discuss the subjects of subgrades and subbases, jointing practices, and specifications in much greater detail, Following are the factors involved in the design process for concrete streets: 1.

Subgrades. Pavements are designed for an expected service life or design life. In some parts of the United Kingdom the standard design life is 40 years for new bitumen and concrete pavement. Maintenance is considered in the whole life cost of the road with service at 10, 20 and 30 year milestones.

Highway Design Manual July 1, Concrete Over Asphalt Composite Pavement Because of the minimum foot thickness requirements for concrete surface course, all pavements with concrete surface course are engineered according to the standards and procedures for rigid pavements in Chapter Topic – Engineering Criteria.

Design and detailing of joints is important for these pavements. All three conventional pavement types have been used as overlays, although jointed plain overlays are most common. Prestressed and precast concrete pavements are used for similar applications as conventional concrete pavements, but have been used infrequently.
