Trinity Lightweight Produces White Paper on Internal Curing for Highway Pavements
Trinity Lightweight, America's leader in lightweight aggregate, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new white paper exploring the use of internal curing for highway pavements.
The white paper covers current research efforts and discusses the topic with Jeffery Roesler, a professor and associate head of civil and environmental engineering at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and president of the International Society of Concrete Pavements.
The compact three page report also focuses on test sections constructed by the Illinois Tollway Authority on a bypass just west of Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. One two-lane, 2,000-foot-long section was built in the summer of 2016, and another 1,000-foot-long section was completed in May 2017.
Dr. Jason Weiss, professor and head of the civil and structural engineering school at Oregon State University, also weighs in, noting that internal curing is already moving from a research context to demonstration projects to actual applications.
