Improved Resilience of Asphalt Pavements Due to Flooding
The primary objective of this study is to determine implementable, cost-effective methods to improve the resilience of asphalt pavements under flooded conditions. This primary objective can be broken down into two detailed objectives:
- Evaluate the resilience of an asphalt mixture that is loaded while inundated with water
- Improve asphalt mixture properties to resist the impacts of flooding
The findings of this research will recommend improvements for asphalt mixtures that are subject to vehicular loading while in a flooded condition.
Improved Resilience of Rigid Pavement Systems
This study will evaluate the impact that inundation may have on concrete pavements; it will identify cost-effective and implementable solutions to improve the resilience of new and existing rigid pavement systems subjected to the combined effects of flooding and sea level rise.
