Mechanistic-empirical modeling and design model development of geosynthetic reinforced flexible pavements : final report by Steven W Perkins( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 43 libraries worldwide
Research over the past 20 years has demonstrated the benefit provided by geosynthetics when placed within or at the bottom of base aggregate layers in flexible pavement systems for the purpose of reinforcement. Previous experimental work involving the construction and loading of reinforced pavement test sections has demonstrated that values of benefit are strongly dependent on pavement design parameters such as thickness of the structural section and/or stiffness of the subgrade, and properties and type of geosynthetic used. A NCHRP Synthesis (Christopher et al., 2001), provides a survey of geosynthetic base reinforcement usage amongst all U.S. State transportation agencies. The survey found that the primary reasons for lack of usage were the absence of a suitable design method for defining reinforcement benefit and the corresponding inability to define cost benefit for reinforced pavement systems. This current project was undertaken to provide an analytically based method for the determination of reinforcement benefit. The method developed is expressed solely in terms of design equations used to calculate reinforcement benefit in terms of pavement structural thickness, subgrade strength and several properties related to the geosynthetic. The finite element model developed involves elastic plastic material models for the asphalt concrete, base aggregate and subgrade layers, and an anisotropic linear elastic model for the geosynthetic. Empirical distress models were developed to relate stress and strain response measures from the finite element model to pavement performance and ultimately reinforcement benefit. Three classes of finite element (FE) response models were developed. The first was for an unreinforced pavement cross section. The second was one in which reinforcement was modeled by preventing all lateral motion of the bottom of the base aggregate. The influence of geosynthetic properties was evaluated by creating a third class of FE model. In this model, the geosynthetic was explicitly accounted for by including a geosynthetic sheet, modeled with membrane elements, between the base aggregate and subgrade layer. This report provides a detailed description of the finite element response model, the material models used in the FE model, calibration of the material models and how these models relate to commonly used pavement layer material models, and the steps followed to develop the design model
State short line railroads and the rural economy ( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 43 libraries worldwide
The objectives of the study are as follows: (1) Determine if short line railroads are a viable transportation alternative to abandonment; (2) Identify the key factors that determine short line success or failure; and (3) Compile a profile of a successful short line railroad to help guide the allocation of state financial assistance. A profile for a profitable short line railroad was developed. State financial assistance is recommended and program components presented. A list of additional recommended public policies is also presented. This study concluded that in the current environment, short line railroads are a viable transportation alternative. However, the long term financial survivability of short line roalroads as an industry is not assured
Accelerated testing for studying pavement design and performance by Hani G Melhem( Book )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 42 libraries worldwide
This report describes the experimental investigation related to four experiments selected by the Midwest States Accelerated Testing Pooled Funds Program for FY 97 and FY 98. These experiments are: (1) ATL-97-1: Comparison of SM-2C and BM-2C Asphalt Overlays on Existing Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP); (2) ATL-97-2: Comparison of PCCP jointed slabs with Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) and epoxy-coated steel dowels; (3) ATL-98-1: Comparison of an 8 in. (203 mm)-thick Asphalt Concrete (AC) with 5 in. (127 mm) AC on 5 in. (127 mm) Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP); and (4) ATL-98-2: Performance of a rehabilitation of the pavement sections of the experiment in (3). The report contains a discussion of the various experimental activities, a detailed description of the experiments and a summary of the results obtained. The report includes an overview of the facility followed by the accomplishments pertaining to the individual experiments (one chapter for each experiment)
Evaluation of fly ash in cold in-place recycling by Stephen A Cross( Book )
5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
The Kansas Department of Transportation has developed an innovative method of rehabilitating pavements of low volume roads utilizing cold in-place recycling of the asphalt and mixing type C fly ash with the recycled material. Field test sections indicate fly ash improves constructability and moisture sensitivity as well as utilizing a by-product that currently ends up in landfills. The same field test sections have shown increased cracking with increased fly ash contents and a drop in pavement modulus with time. Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) was mixed with 3, 7, 11 and 15% fly ash and the laboratory samples were evaluated for fatigue life, durability, freeze-thaw resistance and thermal cracking. The performance of RAP mixed with asphalt emulsion and asphalt emulsion plus hydrated lime was also evaluated

Exporting Kansas grains to selected Asian Pacific Rim and Latin American countries through Port Topolobampo, Mexico by Laura D Garzon( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
This study examines the prospect of Topolobampo, Mexico as an alternative port for Kansas grain exports to selected Asian Pacific Rim and Latin American countries. It specifically attempts to determine whether the said port would provide lower transportation costs between Kansas and its various markets in Asia and Latin America, thereby resulting in a more favorable trade pattern for the state. Least cost transportation of Kansas wheat in 1992 was investigated
Evaluation of corrosion protection methods for reinforced concrete highway structures by Jennifer L Kepler( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
Since the 1970s, research projects and field studies have been conducted on different methods for protecting reinforced concrete bridges from corrosion damage. The methods include alternative reinforcement and slab design, barrier methods, electrochemical methods, and corrosion inhibitors. Each method and its underlying principles are described, performance results of laboratory and/or field trials are reviewed, and systems are evaluated based on the results of the trials. Using performance results from the studies and costs obtained from transportation agencies, an economic analysis is used to estimate the cost of each system over a 75-year economic life using discount rates of 2%, 4% and 6%

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
The direct employment resulting from highway construction and maintenance activities in the state of Kansas is examined as well as the indirect and induced employment (by state industrial sector) resulting from those activities. The objectives of the study are accomplished through the use of a 68-sector, survey-based, input-output model (Emerson, 1989) that was developed for the state of Kansas by the Economics Department at Kansas State University
Use of guardrail on low-volume roads according to safety and cost effectiveness by Margaret J Rys( Book )
3 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 26 libraries worldwide
The objective of this study was to develop guidelines for the use of guardrail on low-volume roads (LVR) in Kansas according to safety and cost effectiveness. A comprehensive review of the research literature was conducted to explore and gather information on the use of guardrail on LVR according to safety and cost effectiveness. The purpose of this information search was to identify the general elements used to determine the need for guardrail on LVR and to review any specific guidelines already in use by other states. The principle findings from this literature review are presented in this report
