A three phase program was undertaken to determine the extent and severity of D-cracking in Ohio, and to determine the role of drainage and materials properties in its development. A rating system was established to evaluate the performance of materials, in particular, coarse aggregate, in existing pavements. Data from these surveys have been processed for storage in a computerized retrieval system. Laboratory freeze-thaw testing has identified the importance of source of coarse aggregate in the development of distress and has provided strong evidence that reducing the maximum particle size of the aggregate may reduce or eliminate the development of D-cracking. A test procedure has been recommended for identifying coarse aggregate sources and gradations vulnerable to freeze-thaw failure in pavements.
