Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I STUDY IS TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF DESIGNING AND FABRICATING A ROADWAY SURFACING SYSTEM OF COMPOSITE MATERIALS. THE STUDY WILL BE CONDUCTED IN SEVERAL STEPS. PRELIMINARY DESIGN TRADEOFF STUDIES WILL IDENTIFY THE BEST MATERIALS AND GEOMETRIC CONFIGURATIONS. FABRICATION CONSIDERATIONS AND COST EFFECTIVENESS WILL BE EVALUATED IN ORDER TO IDENTIFY THE ONE OR TWO MOST PROMISING CONFIGURATIONS. EFFECTS OF MOISTURE ABSORPTION AND SURFACE WEAR ON THE LIFE OF THE COMPONENT WILL BE ESTIMATED FROM EXISTING DATA. A TEST PLAN ENCOMPASSING REQUIRED DESIGN ALLOWABLES, CRITICAL DURABILITY PARAMETERS AND ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WILL BE FORMULATED. CONCEPTUAL DESIGN OF HINGE CONNECTORS AND OTHER JOINTS WILL BE PERFORMED FOR THE SELECTED CONFIGURATION.
