A field program of strain and deflection measurements was conducted by the Construction Technology Laboratories (CTL) for the Iowa Department of Transportation. The objective of the field measurement program was to obtain information on bonded concrete resurfaced pavements that can be used as a data base for verifying bonded resurfacing thickness design procedures. Data gathered during the investigation included a visual condition survey, engineering properties of the original and resurfacing concrete, load related strain and deflection measurements, and temperature related curl (deflection) measurements. Resurfacing is basically the addition of a surface layer to extend the life of an existing pavement. Portland cement concrete has been used to resurface existing pavements since about 1913.
