Computer-Based Guidelines for Concrete Pavements - HIPERPAV III

HIPERPAV (HIgh PERformance concrete PAVing) is a comprehensive, yet user-friendly software program which incorporate a set of guidelines for the proper selection of design and construction variable to minimize early-damage to concrete pavement. The objectives of this research project are to enhance the moisture transport modeling in the HIPERPAV software, and to add additional software features in order to further improve the software program. The moisture model study primarily covers the following content: 1) Literature review and evaluation of moisture transport models for concrete materials and pavements; 2) Development of a moisture transport model; 3) Mathematical solution for the moisture transport model using the one-dimensional finite difference method; 4) Programming of the moisture transport model using FORTRAN® and VBA® coding; 5) Sensitivity analysis of the effects of model parameters, environmental and construction conditions on the moisture transport, and critical stresses and strengths; 6) Validation of the moisture transport model: 7) Incorporation of the moisture transport model into the HIPERPAV software.
