Improved Laboratory Characterisation of the Deformation Properties of Granular Materials

This report examines the capacity of the extra-large wheel-tracking laboratory test method to predict the in-service performance of granular materials.

Rutting is a common distress mode of unbound granular bases under thin bituminous surfacings.

High Modulus High Fatigue Resistance Asphalt (EME2) Technology Transfer: Final Report

EME2 mixes are produced using a hard paving grade bitumen applied at a high binder content (approximately 6%). Compared to conventional asphalt bases with unmodified binders, EME2 asphalt is characterised by high stiffness, high durability, superior…

Austroads LTPP/LTPPM Study - Summary Report 2015-16

This report provides a summary of activities completed during 2015–16 for the Austroads long term pavement performance monitoring project.

Austroads has funded the long-term pavement performance study since late 1994. The project monitors the…

Revised Interim Works Effect Models

This study sought to extend the understanding of pavement works effects (WE) by extending the scope of WE treatments and evaluation measures previously used.

The study was based on data extracted from Austroads long?term pavement performance (LTPP)…

Verification of Austroads Road Design Criteria Based on Objective Safety Evidence

This report provides a compendium of recent and robust evidence on the relationships between twenty key geometric design criteria and safety outcomes.

The project critically reviewed quality research sources to identify crash modification factors…

Asphalt Fatigue Damage Healing and Endurance Limits: Guide Implementation Options

Overseas research has suggested that asphalt fatigue endurance limit may exist, where applied strain is sufficiently low no fatigue damage accumulates in the asphalt as the rate of asphalt healing exceeds the rate of damage accumulation. The…

Specification and Use of Geopolymer Concrete in the Manufacture of Structural and Non-structural Components: Review of Literature

This report reviews published information on the formulation, manufacture and properties of geopolymer binders and concretes, to inform the manufacture of geopolymer concrete components for structural and non-structural bridge components and other…

Realising 100-year Bridge Design Life in an Aggressive Environment: Review of the Literature

This report details a literature review on durability issues that affect the service life of reinforced concrete structures.

The review focused on information from sources within Australia and overseas, including published literature, standards,…

Realising 100-year Design Life of Bridge Structures in an Aggressive Environment: Experimental Work

This report summarises the results of experiments undertaken to understand the practices required to enable a 100-year design life of bridges in an aggressive environment.

The experimental work was informed by an extensive literature review and…

Levels of Service for Non-Freight Road Users

This report documents the results of an Austroads project to identify the asset management needs and level of service (LOS) requirements of future non-freight road users.

Preliminary work documented the relationship of this project to other Austroads…
