PERFORMANCE OF JOINTED CONCRETE PAVEMENTS. VOLUME IV - APPENDIX A - PROJECT SUMMARY REPORTS AND SUMMARY TABLES. INTERIM REPORT

A major national field and analytical study has been conducted into the effect of various design features on the performance of jointed concrete pavements. Extensive design, construction, traffic, and performance data were obtained from numerous experimental and other concrete pavement sections throughout the country. Field data collected and analyzed included distress, drainage, roughness, present serviceability rating (PSR), deflection, destructive testing (coring and boring), and weigh-in-motion (WIM) on selected sites. This information was compiled into a comprehensive microcomputer database. Projects were evaluated on an individual basis and then compared at a national level to identify performance trends. The performance data were used to evaluate and modify several concrete pavement design procedures and analysis models. This volume provides detailed summary reports documenting the design, construction and performance of the 95 pavement sections included in the study. Also presented are summary tables which compile the design and performance data from every section into a convenient tabular format.
