STUDY OF D-CRACKING IN PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

FIELD OPERATIONS ARE DESCRIBED RELATING TO DETERMINATION OF D-CRACK DETERIORATION IN PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS IN KANSAS. PAVEMENTS WITH LIMESTONE COARSE AGGREGATES IN EXCESS OF 35% WERE MORE LIKELY TO BE D-CRACKED THAN PAVEMENTS WITH LESS THAN 35% LIMESTONE COARSE AGGREGATES. MOST OF THE PAVEMENTS WITHOUT LIMESTONE COARSE AGGREGATE WERE RATED GOOD. IMPLEMENTATION HAS INCLUDED LIMITING THE LIMESTONE COARSE AGGREGATE TO NO MORE THAN 30% WITH A MAXIMUM SIZE OF 1/2 INCH, USING TYPE II CEMENT AND PREFORMED NEOPRENE TRANSVERSE JOINT SEALERS. /AUTHOR/
