PaveSuite is composed of four new pavement evaluation related technologies and will be showcased by a single lead states team. These four are:
Enhanced Pavement Test Data Analysis Methodology - This alternative method of analyzing data from nondestructive testing adopts the use of contour plots to provide greatly enhanced information.
Automated Faulting Method - This technology is software used with a high speed inertial profiler to detect joints and estimate faulting in jointed concrete pavement.
Identifying Vibration-Sensitive Work Zones - This technology is analysis software used to estimate the possibility of structural damage and human annoyance by predicting areas sensitive to vibratory compaction rolling.
Automated Cross-Slope and Drainage Path Method - This technology will allow pavement engineers a much more efficient and effective means of identifying roadway areas with a high likelihood of hydroplaning. The tool may also be used to evaluate mitigation strategies.
A host of useful
resources are offered below including
contact information for hands-on assistance in adopting these technologies.
