D-CRACKING AND AGGREGATE SIZE

An extensive study of the problem has recently been completed in the state of Ohio. The first phase of the Ohio study described involved a comprehensive survey of existing exposed concrete pavements. Its purpose was to determine the extent and severity of D-cracking in Ohio. The survey involved interstate roads, U. S. roads and state roads. Nearly half of the total mileage and nearly half of the total number of joints evaluated were on interstate roads. Several test methods were examined to evaluate their usefulness in identifying coarse aggregates which were likely to be involved in the formation of D-cracking.
