Guidelines for the Selection of Performance-Related Tests for the Acceptance of Preservation Treatments

Pavement preservation provides a means for maintaining and improving the functional condition and safety of an existing highway system. Although pavement preservation is not expected to substantially increase structural capacity, it generally leads to improved pavement performance and longer service life. Although a great deal of information on the design, materials, and construction practices of several preservation treatments is available, there is no nationally accepted guidance on the performance-related tests required for their acceptance. There is a need to develop guidelines for the selection of performance-related tests for the acceptance of preservation treatments, particularly chip seals and microsurfacing, to help highway agencies with the acceptance of these treatments and achieving the most benefit from their application. The objective of this research is to develop guidelines for the selection of performance-related tests for the acceptance of preservation treatments. The research shall focus on chip seals and microsurfacing. For the purpose of this research, acceptance tests include those required for design, production, and placement of the treatment.
