Abstract:
Heavy-duty pavements span a wide variety of uses, from truck distribution facilities, to intermodal yards, to military equipment hardstands, to high-volume interstates. These pavements can be subjected to extremely high axle loadings, millions of heavy vehicle load repetitions, high-speed truck traffic, or all of these. Designers and contractors must understand the unique requirements of these pavements, and use appropriate design tools, specification provisions, and construction techniques to properly design and build the pavements for their expected service lives. Concrete pavements are ideally suited for these applications because of their rigidity, strength, and durability. However, different types of concrete pavements, including conventional jointed pavements, roller-compacted concrete (RCC), and precast, may be optimal choices depending on the circumstances.
