Testing Wisconsin asphalt mixtures for the AASHTO 2002 mechanistic design procedure
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2007-07)
The intent of this project was to examine typical hot mix asphalt (HMA) pavements that are constructed in the state of Wisconsin. The analysis compares the suggested pavement structures based on the 1972 pavement design ...
Cone penetrometer comparison testing
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2011-10)
To build the best, most durable pavement, designers must have accurate information on the quality of the subgrade the pavement will stand upon. Cone penetrometer testing is a promising method for measuring subgrade strength. ...
Construction vibration attenuation with distance and its effect on the quality of early-age concrete
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2011-09)
Pile-driving, blasting, and other WisDOT construction activities create air- and ground-transmitted vibration forces that can damage existing and in-construction facilities. Wisconsin limits construction-based vibration ...
Test method to determine aggregate/asphalt adhesion properties and potential moisture damage
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2007-05)
The aim of this research project was to improve current practice by investigating different test methods to quantify moisture damage in an effort to serve the short and long term needs of the agency and industry. In the ...
In-situ monitoring and testing of IBRC bridges in Wisconsin
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2010-06)
This study examines two highway bridges constructed using novel fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite stay-in-place formwork and an FRP grillage reinforcement system. Both bridge superstructures rely on the FRP components ...
Life-cycle cost analysis of SMA pavements and SMA application guidelines
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2006-08)
The objective of this research project was to provide a comparative cost analysis of pavements constructed using stone matrix asphalt (SMA) mixtures versus those built with Wisconsin Department of Transportation's (WisDOT?s) ...
Investigation of the use of open-graded friction courses in Wisconsin
(Wisconsin Highway Research Program, 2009-03)
As Wisconsin is looking at increasing its usage of the perpetual pavement concept, Open Graded Friction Courses (OGFC) may provide another option for use as the renewable surface layer. OGFC has historically not been used ...

The Art of the Pregame
Students engage and discuss the practice of the "pregame" or "pregaming": the social activities that precede a night on the town.
Geography of Apple Orchards in Wisconsin: Examining the Core of Cultivation
This study looks at the locations of orchards in Wisconsin and examines the reasons behind the initial choice for those locations as well as recent changes in popular locations and orchard methods. The most significant ...
