Non-nuclear density testing devices and systems to evaluate in-place asphalt pavement density
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2006-05)
A field evaluation of portable non-nuclear density gauges was conducted to determine their effectiveness and practicality for quality control and acceptance of asphalt pavement construction. Three portable non-nuclear gauge ...
Effects of heavy loading on Wisconsin's concrete pavements
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2005-05)
Wisconsin DOT District 7 filed a Report of Early Distress for a 6.5-mile stretch of USH 8 and an 8-mile stretch of USH 51 near Rhinelander in 2001. An investigation of the causes for the premature failures concluded that ...
Development of in-place permeability criteria for HMA pavement in Wisconsin
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2007-02)
The purpose of this study is the development of permeability and density acceptance criteria for hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavements in Wisconsin. The work detailed in this report is Phase I of II. Databases from the Pavement ...
Performance evaluation of open graded base course with doweled and non-doweled transverse joints on USH 18/151, STH 29, and USH 151
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2010-09)
The objectives of this study were to investigate the performance of 20-year old doweled/non-doweled and dense-graded/permeable base test sections on three concrete pavement segments in Wisconsin: USH 18/151 in Iowa and ...
Performance of shoulders adjacent to concrete pavements: final report to the Wisconsin Highway Research Program
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2003-07)
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) maintenance staff in both the Districts and Central Office discussed the less-than-optimum performance of the current asphalt shoulder design and standard being constructed ...
Development of recommendations for compaction temperatures in the field to acheive denisty and limit as-built permeability of HMA in Wisconsin
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2009-03)
The objectives of this study were to (1) evaluate the effect of compaction effort and temperature on densification of HMA in the field and in the lab, (2) quantify the effects of Warm Mix additives on the compaction, and ...
