A PAVEMENT OVERLAY DESIGN SYSTEM CONSIDERING WHEEL LOADS, TEMPERATURE CHANGES, AND PERFORMANCE

A RECENT REVIEW OF CURRENT OVERLAY DESIGN PROCEDURES REVEALED THAT A FEW BONA FIDE PROCEDURES EXIST AND THAT EVEN THE BEST OF THEM, I.E., THOSE BASED ON DEFLECTION, HAVE LIMITATIONS AND INCONSISTENCIES. FURTHERMORE, THE REVIEW EMPHASIZED THE NEED FOR CONSIDERING VOLUME CHANGE STRESSES. THE PURPOSE OF THIS PAPER, THEREFORE, IS TO BRIEFLY DISCUSS A RECENTLY DEVELOPED OVERLAY DESIGN PROCEDURE, WHICH HAS BEEN APPLIED TO 11 MILES OF INTERSTATE HIGHWAY AND 2 AIRPORTS. A BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE OVERLAY DESIGN SYSTEM AND ITS APPLICATION IS PRESENTED HERE; A DETAILED DESCRIPTION IS AVAILABLE. THE GENERAL PAVEMENT SYSTEM IS DISCUSSED AND APPLIED TO DEVELOP AN OVERLAY SYSTEM THAT IS APPLIED TO THE DESIGN OF AN OVERLAY FOR CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT IN TEXAS. THIS DESIGN IS DISCUSSED IN TERMS OF WHEEL LOAD AND TEMPERATURE STRESSES. /AUTHOR/
