Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 42-08. Significant Findings from Advanced Pavement Testing

NCHRP Synthesis 325 reported on information pertaining to Accelerated Pavement Testing (APT) projects until early 2000. Since then APT programs in the US and abroad have expanded and research findings have been published on a wide range of topics. More than thirty APT programs are currently active in the US and internationally. There have been two international conferences dedicated solely to APT: one in 2004 in Minneapolis and the other in Madrid in 2008. Presentations and publications stemming from the annual TRB meetings and other conferences have also added to the increase in APT research findings. From the proceedings of these conferences and meetings and other research reports it is clear that APT research has is generating a vast scope of significant findings, and that the application of these findings has been expanding into the broad field of Pavement Engineering. This update of Synthesis 325 will gather into one report this large source of knowledge to be utilized effectively and efficiently by the pavement engineering community. The study will look at new studies that fit the framework of Synthesis 325 but also identify new areas of research using APT have emerged recently to the benefit to the pavement engineering in the US. In this regard, there is also a strong need to identify what is needed as further research. The primary objective of this study is to develop a framework for capturing, structuring and reporting on assessments of APT findings and applications, and to assemble and summarize the benefits of the APT work conducted in the past eight years.
