Pavement Management 2013, Volume 1
TRB’s Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2366 contains 14 papers that explore a tool for contractors and agencies for assessing greenhouse gas emissions of highway construction projects; the incorporation of environmental impacts of pavement treatments into a performance-based optimization; the integration of rolling wheel deflectometer deflection measurements into pavement management systems; a Bayesian approach to updating Markov-based models for predicting pavement performance; and, findings from the international scan on managing pavements and monitoring performance.
This issue also addresses pavement condition of the national highway system; the management of pavement maintenance, rehabilitation, and reconstruction through network partition; network-level decision making through the use of a structural capacity index; probabilistic characterization of uncertain inputs in the life-cycle cost analysis of pavements; and, pavement condition states before and after treatment.
Additionally, this issue examines innovative sprinkle treatment for thin durable asphalt overlays; the effectiveness of Mississippi’s pavement warranty program; the impact of error in pavement condition data on the output of network-level pavement management systems; and, an improved method for evaluating the pavement structural number with falling weight deflectometer deflections.
