Premature Failure of Asphalt Overlays From Stripping: Case ...

Premature failures of asphalt overlays within two years of construction are not uncommon. This paper documents four such case histories from Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and New South Wales in Australia. Case histories give the details of construction, visual observation of pavement distress, sampling and testing of pavement, and conclusions ...

This paper examines the strain response of typical HMA overlays above jointed PCC slabs prone to bottom-up reflective cracking. The occurrence of reflective cracking under the combined effect of traffic and environmental loading significantly reduces the design life of the HMA overlays and can lead to its premature failure. In this context, viscoelastic material properties combined with cyclic ...
