<p>Nailed-slab System is a proposed alternative solution for rigid pavement problem on soft soils. Equivalent modulus of subgrade reaction (k&rsquo;) can be used in designing of nailed-slab system. This modular is the cumulative of modulus of subgrade reaction ...

Bridge approaches provide a smooth and safe transition of vehicles from highway pavements to bridge structures and vice versa. Settlement at the end of the bridge and highway pavements also known as a ‘bump’ in the roadway, causes not only inconvenience to ...

Bridge approaches provide smooth and safe transition of vehicles from highway pavements to bridge structures. However, settlement of the bridge approach slab relative to bridge decks usually creates a bump in the roadway. The bump causes inconvenience to passengers ...

The purpose of this study is to document the performance and effectiveness of two mitigation techniques, geosynthetic reinforced fill and flowable fill, installed behind four Wisconsin bridges. Two of the bridges (Hemlock and Cranberry bridges) are founded ...

Differential settlement at the roadway/bridge interface typically results in an abrupt grade change, causing driver discomfort, impairing driver safety, and exerting a potentially excessive impact traffic loading on the abutment. Bridge approach slabs are ...

In recent years many projects use deep-soil-mixing columns for the improvement of soft ground. These methods permit accelerated construction of embankments and protect adjacent facilities that might otherwise be damaged by settlements induced by the new embankment ...
