RES2019-12: Utilization of Accelerated Pavement Tester (APT) for New Materials and Pavement Structure Research

The purpose of the project is to utilize the accelerated pavement testing device and pit at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK) to investigate the many options to improve the pavement performance in Tennessee by use of new pavement materials, pavement structure, and pavement maintenance and rehabilitation methods. The primary objective of the research is to utilize the APT at UT-Knoxville campus to test and evaluate new pavement materials, pavement structures, and pavement rehabilitation and maintenance, including: (1) Geosynthetic-reinforced pavement base; (2) Inverted pavements or other innovative pavement designs; (3) Pavement maintenance treatments.
