DETERIORATION OF ASPHALTIC CONCRETE SURFACES CONTAINING STEEL SLAG

This report describes an application of the C-SHRP Bayesian statistical analysis methodology for the development of a pavement deterioration model for asphaltic concrete surfaces containing steel slag aggregates. The asphaltic concrete mixes containing steel slag have been used in Ontario on major highways since the late 1970s. In 1992, their use was discontinued because of premature pavement deterioration. The purpose of the model was to facilitate timely scheduling of effective rehabilitation treatments for projects containing steel slag mixes. Results indicate that the C-SHRP Bayesian statistical analysis approach is useful in that (a) it provides an independent review and endorsement of prediction models by experts, (b) it can increase the application scope, reliability and predictive power of the models, and (c) it facilitates quantification of the influence and contribution of field data and expert judgment in the modeling process.
