C-LTPP Database: How Can We Capitalize on This Valuable Data? (Poster)

In 1989, the C-SHRP (Canadian-Strategic Highway Research Program) launched a national full scale field experiment known as the Canadian Long-Term Pavement Performance (C-LTPP) program. Between the years 1989 and 1992, a total of 24 test sites were constructed for a total of 65 sections. The majority of the overlays used Hot-Mix Asphalt Concrete (HMAC). Several sections used HMAC with the addition of polymer, or a high friction mix, and several others used Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP). The C-LTPP program attempted to design and build the test sections across Canada so as to cover the widest range of experimental factors such as traffic loading, environmental region, and subgrade type. The environment types include Wet-No Freeze, Wet-Freeze and Dry-Freeze. For the covering abstract of this conference see ITRD record number 201310RT334E.
