Large parts of the Netherlands lay below mean sea level. An extensive network of flood protection measures is in place to prevent flooding. Periodic safety assessment and reinforcement are required to guarantee a resilient system. Currently, in the Netherlands, an extensive sea dike reinforcement program is underway to meet the safety standards...

Maintenance is a necessary measure to keep the asset, in this case a road network, in good condition. Spending too much on maintenance is clearly not efficient, while not spending enough may cause the condition to drop below a desired value; moreover, it will almost always cost more to correct the emerging damages afterwards. <br/>In this report...

The fatigue life of asphalt concrete is an important parameter in the functional design of a road construction. In the Netherlands it is determined by the four Point Bending (4PB) test on laboratory prepared specimen. During the past years there is an increase in desire to validate the laid down asphalt pavement to the established functional...

The adhesive bonding strength of the membrane layers between the asphalt concrete surface layers and the decks of steel bridges has a strong influence on the fatigue life of orthotropic steel deck bridges (OSDBs). The most important requirement for the application of membrane materials to orthotropic steel deck bridges is that the membrane...

Self-healing of asphalt concrete (AC) is highly dependent on temperature, and its healing capacity increases with elevated temperatures. The main objective of this study is to investigate the effect of microwave heating on promotion of self-healing in AC. With this purpose, two types of AC specimens (neat AC without additives and conductive...

Despite therelevance of the road infrastructure, the mechanisms governing the mechanicalproperties of asphalt concrete pavements, are currently not sufficientlyunderstood. Many empirical models of different complexity are proposed in theliterature; however, (i) they all have below high (R2 =0.85) predictiveaccuracy; (ii)...

The orthotropic steel deck bridges (OSDBs) in the Netherlands consists mostly of multilayer system: top porous asphalt layer, guss asphalt layer, steel deck and two membrane layers. The five-point bending (5PB) beam test is the standard device in France for characterization of fatigue response of asphalt concrete surfacings used on...

Asphalt concrete stiffness is currently only determined by tests in The Netherlands. A prediction model can be useful for mix design and verification purposes. In this paper existing asphalt concrete stiffness prediction models have been analysed. A database with 7 mixes has been build to assess these models. A study was performed on the...

Electrically conductive asphalt concrete has the potential to satisfy multifunctional applications. Designing such asphalt concrete needs to balance the electrical and mechanical performance of asphalt concrete. The objective of this study is to design electrically conductive asphalt concrete without compromising on the mechanical properties...

Aging is a crucial factor in pavement performance and being able to determine its effect on a mixture is necessary to link its initial properties to the properties over time in order to ensure the intended service life. This is becoming more important now that climate change leads to increased variation in weather conditions, while environmental...

Porous Asphalt (PA) concrete is widely used as a surfacing layer on highways in the Netherlands. The service life of PA wearing courses is limited because of the fact that it is vulnerable to raveling. The possibilities of applying preventive maintenance to PA wearing courses by means of spraying rejuvenation products on the pavement surfaces...
