Asphalt Overlay

Asphalt overlay is a paving method of applying a new layer of asphalt to a deteriorating surface Rather than tearing up an old asphalt surface entirely, an asphalt overlay project will use the existing layers as a base for the new asphalt pavement.

Index

Deflection data are used to characterize the structural condition of flexible pavements and provide a benchmark in determining the in-place damage of asphalt concrete (AC) layers for use with the MEPDG (1, 2) In-place damage is defined by the ratio of the backcalculated elastic layer modulus and laboratory-measured dynamic modulus of AC layers.

13 Pavement Defects and Failures You Should Know!

Ruts in asphalt pavements are channelized depressions in the wheel-tracks Rutting results from consolidation or lateral movement of any of the pavement layers or the subgrade under traffic It is caused by insufficient pavement thickness; lack of compaction of the asphalt, stone base or soil; weak asphalt mixes; or moisture infiltration.

How Cool Pavements Work

Another option to make existing pavement surfaces more reflective while repairing them is to use cement overlays (also called “whitetopping”), which places a thin layer of cement concrete over an existing asphalt surface Permeable pavements In addition to solar reflective pavements, permeable pavements are another class of cool pavements.

Asphalt Pavement Thickness and Mix Design

Is the pavement structure (subgrade, subbase, base, and all asphalt layers) adequate to support the loads? You need to purchase our MS-23 Manual, Thickness Design of Asphalt Pavements for Heavy Wheel Loads Is the hot mix asphalt surface stiff enough to resist deformation (ruts or indentations)?.

Pavement Design

Pavement Design - Thickness Design The thckness design of the pavement is the determination of the overall thickness of the road and the thickness of the individual layers This is of course dependant on the type of material chosen for the road This is explained in more detail below.

Concrete Pavement Resurfacing

Concrete Overlays of Asphalt Pavement Conventional Whitetopping and ultra-thin whitetopping (UTW) are overlays for existing asphalt pavement Conventional whitetopping consists of a thick concrete layer (4 inches or more) on top of an existing asphalt pavement When loaded by vehicles, the new overlay behaves just like a new concrete pavement.

Pavement Layer

For example, if the thickness of an asphalt layer is 20 cm according to the design procedure from Fig 86, the pavement structure can be designed as the structure in Fig 812The bottom 10 cm of the asphalt layer may be considered as either permeable base or regular asphalt bottom layer.
