PRECAST PAVEMENT: BUILT TO LAST; INSTALLS FAST

Fully cured jointed precast concrete paving slabs provide many advantages over materials currently used for rapid repair of concrete pavement. When you need a more durable, long-lasting, versatile rapid repair that can be installed in nearly any type of weather, the solution is jointed precast concrete pavement.

Precast Concrete Jointed Pavement slabs are fully cured prior to delivery to the job site, so the repaired road can be opened to traffic immediately upon installation. It’s ready to go when installed. Repairs can be performed at night and/or after the morning rush, and the lane can be reopened with minimal disruption to traffic flow.

And it’s not just flat surfaces. Precast Concrete Jointed Pavement can be designed for a myriad of applications such as horizontal curves, three-dimensional surfaces, intersections, changing crown lines, utility-intensive pavement, instrumented applications, heavily-skewed bridge approach slabs as well as for airfield runways and taxiways.  Jointed slabs may be used singularly for isolated repairs or in multiples, to create a continuous surface of new pavement. Advanced technology in precast concrete operations and equipment makes is possible to design and place three-dimensional pavement as encountered in intersections and super-elevation transitions.

The vast majority of the concrete pavement in existence today is jointed. Precast Concrete Jointed Pavement slabs installed in an existing jointed concrete pavement structure retain the expansion and contraction characteristics of the surrounding existing pavement, making it a logical choice of precast repair for existing jointed pavements.

New Horizons for Jointed Precast Concrete Pavements

Date: June 18, 2014; 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. EDT

Presenters

    • Mark B. Snyder, Ph.D., P.E., Consultant, and President, International Society of Concrete Pavements (ISCP)
    • Peter Smith, P.E., Vice President, Market Development and Product Engineering at The Fort Miller Co., Inc.

Nevada I-395 Precast Concrete Paving Slab

Overview

This is the fifth installment of our five-part series on jointed precast concrete pavements presented by the National Precast Concrete Association and the American Concrete Pavement Association.

This is an important topic for agencies/owners, contractors, consultants and others with an interest in precast concrete pavements.  In this webinar, we will take a closer look at some of the ways jointed precast concrete pavement technology and products are being improved upon, as well as what potential improvements and applications are or soon will be available.

Our webinar will begin with a brief recap of parts one through four, and then, will proceed with discussions that cover these topics:

Part I.   Overview and Current Outlook

    • A quick recap of webinars 1 through 4.
    • Perfecting what we already have started (with a look at bedding methods, load transfer, grade control, and techniques for achieving correct surface geometry

Part II.   Product Improvements, Technology Enhancements

    • Improving load transfer by minimizing the structural effects of slots.
    • Making thinner panels:  Why and where we need them

Part III.   New Horizons:  Innovations in Jointed Precast Concrete Pavements.

    • New applications
      • Unbonded (or bonded) precast overlays
      • Re-movable and re-usable pavements (RUPs), including “Superpavers”
      • Instrumented pavements for toll-roads, electric taxis, and weigh-in motion stations.
      • Airport pavements (taxiway and runway applications)
      • Bus pad innovations
      • Bridge approach slabs
    •  Enabling materials and Equipment
      • Rapid-setting bedding grout
      • Removable dowels (Super-Dowels) and tie bars
      • Laser-controlled grading equipment

The National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) was a Gold Level sponsor at the 10th International Conference on Concrete Pavements in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, July 8-12, 2012. The focus of the conference was to present information on new technologies related to the design, construction and rehabilitation of various types of concrete pavements.

The conference targeted pavement, materials, and geotechnical engineering professionals who are involved in all aspects of concrete pavement design, construction, testing and evaluation, and rehabilitation. Professionals in attendance included federal, state and municipal engineers; consulting engineers; contractors; materials suppliers; and academia.

At the conference, NPCA sponsored a four hour seminar titled “Precast Concrete Pavement: View Points from Practitioners and Visionaries.” The seminar was focused on jointed precast concrete pavement technology. The seminar touched on the following topics:

    • A Historical and Future Perspective
    • An Overview of R05- An International Perspective
    • MTO Perspective on Concrete Pavement in Ontario
    • Utah Perspective on Jointed Precast Concrete Pavement
    • Caltrans Maintenance Perspective on Jointed Precast Concrete Pavement
    • A Contractor’s Perspective on Jointed Precast Concrete Pavement
    • The Use of Precast Panels for Dynamic Wireless Charging of Vehicles (in Singapore)

List of Speakers:

Moderator:  Denis Thebeau – Ministry of Transportation of Quebec

Ernie Barrenberg – A Historical and Future Perspective

Neeraj Buch – Professor and Interim Chairperson at Michigan State U. An Overview of RO5 – An International Perspective

Tom Kazmierowski – Ministry of Transportation of Ontario MTO Perspective on precast Concrete Pavement in Ontario
