INVESTIGATION OF LONGITUDINAL CRACKING REFLECTED THROUGH ASPHALTIC CONCRETE RESURFACING

A SURVEY OF 599 MI OF PAVEMEENT THAT HAD BEEN WIDENED AND RESURFACED IS DESCRIBED. THE OBJECT WAS TO REPORT THE INCIDENCE OF REFLECTION CRACKING AT THE WIDENING JOINT. AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO DISCOVER THE RELATIVE EFFECT OF: (1) THE USE OF WELDED WIRE FABRIC REINFORCEMENT IN THE ASPHALTIC CONCRETE RESURFACING; (2) THREE TYPES OF WIDENING: (A) NINE INCHES OF PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE, (B) SIX INCHES OF ROLLED STONE AND FIVE INCHES OF ASPHALTIC CONCRETE, AND (C) TEN OR ELEVEN INCHES OF ASPHALTIC CONCRETE; (3) THE DELAY BETWEEN WIDENING AND RESURFACING; AND (4) THE AGE OF RESURFACING.
