TRB Webinar: Evaluation of Superheavy Load Movement on Flexible Pavements April 23, 2019 02:00 PM - 03:30 PM U.S. Eastern 1.50 0.00 0.00 0.00

TRB will conduct a webinar on Tuesday, April 23, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that will examine procedures for analyzing the impacts of superheavy load (SHL) movement on flexible pavements developed under a U.S. Federal Highway Administration-sponsored research project*. SHL hauling units are much larger and heavier than standard trucks and may involve gross vehicle weights in excess of a few million pounds, which at times requires specialized trailers and components with nonstandard spacing between the tires and axles.

The presenters will discuss analysis methods -- such as subgrade bearing failure analysis, sloped pavement shoulder failure analysis, buried utility risk analysis, localized shear failure analysis, deflection-based service limit analysis, and cost allocation analysis -- to determine whether a pavement is structurally adequate to sustain SHL movement.  They also will describe the SuperPACK tool developed to conduct this analysis.

This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Structural Requirements of Asphalt Mixtures; TRB Standing Committee on General and Emerging Pavement Design; TRB Standing Committee on Design and Rehabilitation of Asphalt Pavements; and TRB Standing Committee on Pavement Structural Modeling and Evaluation.
