Chapter 3 - Transverse Cracking | Long-Term Field ...

Figure 3.1 shows a typical transverse crack in an asphalt pavement overlay. For most cases in this study, the trans- verse cracks are surface-initiated cracks, and they could be a combination of thermal cracking and reflective cracking, as described in Chapter 2. Comparisons of Transverse Cracking in the Field Comparisons Based on First-Round ...

Preventing Transverse Bumps and Cracks in New Asphalt ...

the occurrence of bumps and transverse cracks during asphalt overlay construction over crack sealants. Observations suggest that transverse bumps and consequent cracks occur in proportion to the size of the 'bow wave' of asphalt paving materials present immediately in front of the breakdown roller.

Transverse Cracking of Asphalt Pavements, HR-1040, Summary ...

This report summarizes the analysis of transverse cracking in asphalt pavement by a five state study team from Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Oklahoma. The study was initiated under the sponsorship of the Federal Highway Administration and four evaluation conferences were held during the course of the study. Each state conducted a crack inventory on their asphalt pavement.

EVALUATION OF FIELD TRANSVERSE CRACKING OF ASPHALT PAVEMENTS Abstract by Weiguang Zhang, Ph.D. Washington State University August 2015 Chair: Shihui Shen Transverse cracking is one of the major distress types in asphalt pavement. The crack initiates from pavement surface and propagates downward (thermal cracking), or initiates from

Transverse (Thermal) Cracking. Cracks perpendicular to the pavement's centerline or laydown direction. Usually a type of thermal cracking. A large transverse crack caused by the pavement's contraction in cold weather. The crack has subsequently been patched as a temporary fix. Another transverse crack caused by thermal contraction during cold ...

Low Temperature Transverse Cracking of Asphalt Concrete ...

The phenomenon of low-temperature transverse cracking of asphalt concrete pavements has received much attention in recent years. Most of the work has been carried out by individuals and agencies in Canada and the northern United States working with data from these areas (1, 5, 11, 13,).

7 Types of Asphalt Cracking and Their Causes - Superior ...

4. Transverse cracking. Cracks approximately perpendicular to the centerline are commonly known as transverse cracks. Transverse cracking may occur due to low temperature thermal cracking or because the asphalt grade is too hard for the particular climate conditions. These cracks are often caused by asphalt layer shrinkage.

Answer (1 of 10): Transverse cracks in asphalt pavements at regular intervals across the pavement can be indicative of reflective cracking occurring directly above joints in concrete slabs. Whether or not poor construction or a poor design is to blame, this is non the less considered a defect as ...
