Abstract

Several states in the U.S. are undertaking a variety of innovative research in high performance concrete pavement materials and innovative design/construction features. This paper addresses the investigation undertaken in exploring the use of fiber reinforced and low shrinkage concrete in pavements. Past experience with these materials have indicated i) potential benefits in flexural fatigue resistance and reduction in crack development, and ii) potential reduction in slab warping effects with implications on pavement slab longevity. The objective of this study was to examine the design and lab performance of these materials for local conditions in Maryland, monitor their lab and field performance, and quantify potential benefits. This paper presents the laboratory shrinkage, toughness, and fatigue analysis results for
