TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-R21-RW-1: 2008 Survey of European Composite Pavements explores in-service composite pavement sites in the Netherlands, Germany, and Austria in order to help assess the design, construction, and performance of composite pavement systems. The report also examines other issues that should be considered in the design and construction of new composite pavement systems. Report S2-R21-RW-1 is only available in electronic format.

The project that produced this report also produced Composite Pavement Systems Volume 1: HMA/PCC Pavements, which explores the structural and functional performance of surfacing a new portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement layer with a high-quality hot mix asphalt (HMA) layer, and Composite Pavement Systems Volume 2: PCC/PCC Pavements, which explores the structural and functional performance of placing a relatively thin, high-quality PCC surface atop a thicker PCC layer.

SHRP 2 Renewal Project R21 has also produced sample specifications related to three experimental composite pavement sections in Minnesota, as well as proposed revisions to AASHTO’s Mechanistic-Empirical Design Guide, Interim Edition: A Manual of Practice, which address newly constructed composite pavements.
