Poor adhesion results in premature pavement distress, and ultimately causes pavement failure. Early detection of problems through good quality control and quality assurance help prevent expensive rehabilitation efforts. Debonding of pavement is one of the factors affecting pavement performance, which can be controlled. Results of this research will be a catalog for engineers and site inspectors to ensure adequate bonding. This research will put forth recommended tack coat material, and its optimum application rates. In addition, the effects of temperature, normal stress and mix type combinations are studied.Asphalt Concrete Overlays On Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavements: Decision Criteria, Tack Coat Evaluation, and Asphalt Concrete Mixture Evaluation.
