Development of guidelines for rubblization: final report

This report presents the results of Airfield Asphalt Pavement Technology Program Project (AAPTP) 04-01, Development of Guidelines for Rubblization. The objective was to document the state of the art in rubblization technology for airfield pavements and develop guidelines covering project feasibility, thickness design/material characterization, quality assurance criteria and methods, and construction/equipment issues. Chapter 2 includes an extensive review of the literature on rubblization for both highways and airfields. Chapter 3 presents a suggested criteria and protocol for assessing the suitability of rubblization as a rehabilitation technique if the concrete slabs are less than 9 inches thick and have weak underlying support. Chapter 4 covers structural characterization of the rubblized layer, along with other thickness design considerations such as minimum overlay thickness. Chapter 5 deals with quality control and assurance of the rubblization process, providing recommendations regarding test strips, test pits and particle-size acceptance criteria. Chapter 6 provides guidance on equipment and other issues not sufficiently covered in earlier chapters.
