CONDITION OF CONCRETE PAVEMENTS IN KANSAS AS AFFECTED BY COARSE-AGGREGATE

THE PURPOSE WAS TO INVESTIGATE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CERTAIN CLASSES OF FAILURE (MAINLY D-LINES) AND THE MATERIALS INCORPORATED INTO THE CONCRETE, (PRINCIPALLY THE COARSE AGGREGATE). EACH PAVEMENT WAS RATED GOOD, FAIR OR POOR DEPENDING ON THE FREQUENCY AND EXTENT OF FAILURES COUNTED PER MILE IN D-LINE DISINTEGRATION (MATERIAL FAILURE). THE EXAMINATION WAS BASED UPON THE CONDITION OF THE CONCRETE AS A MATERIAL RATHER THAN THE CONDITION OF THE SLAB. THE SURVEY POINTS OUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ONE SET OF CONDITIONS (THE CA COMPONENT) AND IS LIMITED TO ONE TYPE OF FAILURE (DISINTEGRATION AS A MATERIAL). IT IS NOT INTENDED TO IMPLY THAT THE CAUSE AND EFFECT OF SUCH FAILURES ARE LIMITED TO THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE COARSE AGGREGATE AND D-CRACK FAILURES. IT IS INTENDED TO CONVEY THE THOUGHT THAT THIS PARTICULAR RELATIONSHIP IS HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT AND SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO THE SELECTION OF BETTER COARSE AGGREGATES FOR KANSAS CONCRETE HIGHWAYS OF THE FUTURE. /AUTHOR/
