Roya Amjadi, Jim Sherwood, and Gerardo Flintsch




This exploratory study analyzed crash and pavement data to examine pavement reliability performance (PRP) for seasonal temperature changes in U.S. State Y. The term PRP is a general term, and the NCHRP 500 report series were used for this study. PRP was examined for three pavement types: Pave 1 - asphalt overlay on flexible pavement; Pave 2 - asphalt overlay on rigid pavement; Pave 3 - jointed plain concrete. This study recommends further research for asphalt surface property sensitivity to temperature, and the impact of pavement surface temperature on pavement reliability using analysis of crash data.
