Fast-Track Concrete Pavements - ACPA Wiki

A 200 mm (8.0 in) municipal fast-track pavement will carry an average daily traffic ADT = 5000 (one way). Trucks make up ten percent of the traffic stream. The pavement is plain-doweled with curb and gutter and resting on a foundation with an equivalent subgrade modulus of 27.2 MPa/m (100 psi/in).

Differences Between Concrete and Asphalt Pavement - ACPA

In contrast, rigid pavements are made up of portland cement concrete and may or may not have a base course between the pavement and subgrade. The essential difference between the two types of pavements, flexible and rigid, is the manner in which they distribute the load over the subgrade.

In designing concrete pavements, flexural strength is often used because it better simulates what happens when a slab is loaded by a truck or other vehicle. Another term for the flexural strength is the modulus of rupture. Most general-use concrete has a flexural strength between 500 psi to 700 psi.

Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) - ACPA Wiki

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 1.5 - 6 ft (0.5 - 1.8 m). CRCP is designed with enough embedded reinforcing steel (approximately 0.6-0.7% by cross-sectional area) so that ...

Recycling Concrete Pavements - ACPA Wiki

Re cycling the existing concrete pavement into a new concrete pavement surface was selected as the most feasible and economical rehabilitation alter native for this section. In 1985, the original concrete pavement (an 8-in. [200-mm] thick JPCP) was removed, along with 2 in. (50 mm) of the underlying crushed stone subbase and the asphalt shoulders.

Joint Sealants - ACPA - American Concrete Pavement Association

About 25% of roadway agencies use hot-pour sealants in transverse joints of highway pavements. However, most of the hot-pour sealants sold by manufacturers today are used in low-volume concrete roads and highway pavement longitudinal joints. Manufacturers introduced compression seals for pavement in the early 1960s.
