DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION OF SEVERAL MAINTENANCE TECHNIQUES FOR CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

A considerable amount of CRC pavements in Indiana have shown some distress. Past research by Faiz and Yoder have delved into the causes of this distress. Nevertheless, methods to maintain the existing CRC pavements are needed. This research deals with the design and construction of several maintenance techniques for CRC pavements. A section of pavement on I-65 was stratified into "similar" sections of pavement using deflection, cracking, and breakups as the selection criteria. Various types of maintenance were applied to these sections in the summer and early fall of 1975. Observations of the construction process were made and detailed descriptions were presented. Preliminary comparisons were made of the effects of the construction along with the comparative costs of each. Specific conclusions cannot be made at this time as to the best type of maintenance to be used. These final conclusions must await a further evaluation period to determine the long term effects of the maintenance. This evaluation will be presented in later reports. /FHWA/
