Highways, Local Government Members Only

Tim Nash presents on Partnering for innovative solutions in concrete paving. The presentation covers: General overview of US concrete paving market (Covid effect, spending outlook and market characteristics) Paving manufacturer focuses (mold design, frame/chasis design, control systems, attachments) Discussion of various recent projects (Interstate, local roads, safety barriers)

Macro Synthetic Fibres – Potential Uses in Pavements [MSFRC]

Highways, Industrial, Local Government Members Only

Presentation Overview What are Macro Synthetic Fibres Review of Current Practice (Global, National, Domestic & SRAs/DoTs) Current and potential applications Recommendations What are Macro Synthetic Fibres? Available commercially since the early 2000s Intended to be used as a replacement for steel mesh reinforcement and not for structural steel design. Manufactured...

New Developments in Rapid Set Concrete Slab Replacements

Airports, Highways, Industrial, Intermodals/Ports, Local Government Members Only

Current and future eras are seeing an operational environment where road occupancy for pavement maintenance or repairs will be severely restricted under conditions of maximising availability for service traffic and access to roadside properties. A key driving force for concrete pavement slab replacement, where required, is the need to use...

Latest Developments for Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) in USA

Airports, Highways, Industrial, Intermodals/Ports, Local Government Members Only

Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) is a no slump concrete that is placed by a high density paver and compacted with vibratory rollers similar to asphalt pavement construction. RCC has long history of good performance as a pavement for ports, container yards and manufacturing plants. This paper will summarise a recent...

Design Of Ultrathin Fiber Reinforced Concrete Pavements

Highways, Local Government Members Only

A new methodology has been developed to design the concrete slab thickness by optimizing the slab size given the geometry of the truck axles, the design is based on an unbonded system with either granular, HMA, Stabilized or Concrete Base. The key principle of the design method is to configure...

New Method of Paving Concrete Production

Highways, Industrial, Intermodals/Ports, Local Government, Trackslabs Members Only

Modern concrete pavements are based on sophisticated blends of cements, often containing SCM, graded nonreactive aggregates and various admixtures, all of which are aimed at producing the most durable pavement possible. Placement techniques also incorporate the use of various curing compounds, which again are aimed at producing durable concrete. However,...

Geopolymer and High Volume Fly Ash Concrete for Pavements

Airports, Highways, Industrial, Intermodals/Ports, Local Government, Trackslabs Members Only

Much interest has been shown in improving the sustainable performance of concrete. The use of cement replacement materials and geopolymer concrete offers benefits in terms of reduced carbon footprint and enhanced properties. This paper reviews the properties of geopolymer concrete and concrete with high levels of cement replacement materials relevant...

Use of recycled concrete aggregates in concrete pavements

Highways, Industrial, Local Government, Trackslabs Members Only

The quality of the input of fine and coarse aggregates for concrete has an influence on the quality and consistency of the new concrete, and this is particularly applicable when recycled concrete aggregates (RCA) are incorporated in the concrete. The overseas literature indicates that where substitutions do not exceed 20%,...

Use of Manufactured Sand in Concrete Pavement

Airports, Highways, Industrial, Intermodals/Ports, Local Government, Trackslabs Members Only

Recent research by the Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA) focused on the selection of manufactured sands for general concrete applications and for concrete road pavements. Selected manufactured sands can be used as part of the fine aggregates to deliver workable concrete for general applications and to provide good skid...

Implications of Using Manufactured Fine Aggregates in Concrete Pavements

Airports, Highways, Industrial, Intermodals/Ports, Local Government, Trackslabs Members Only

The International Center for Aggregates Research has been performing research on the use of manufactured fine aggregates (MFA) for over 15 years. The first issue was the high amounts of micro fines, i.e. minus 75 μmm, that typically exceed the amounts permitted by ASTM C33 in the production of concrete....

Key Components in Long Term Sustainability of Concrete Pavement Systems & Sustainability Considerations for PCC Pavement Design and Construction

Highways, Industrial, Local Government Members Only

This paper addresses key issues regarding important factors affecting the sustainability and long-term performance of PCC pavement structures. Key distress types and their associated features are discussed in terms of their effect on performance and sustainabilityin terms of specific pavement components. Relevantmaterialproperties are also identified and discussed as to how...
