This post-tensioned pavement construction proposal is based on field test performed at Dulles Airport and on an interchange ramp near Milford, Delaware. It would provide the following design and construction features in post-tensioned pavements: pavement thicknesses of only about five to six inches; use of only four stands of post-tensioning steel per lane; possibly no transverse steel except tie bars; and placement at increased paving speeds or greater widths per cubic yard of concrete. The post-tensioning steel would be six-tenths of an inch in diameter seven wire strands each with an ultimate strength of 58,000 pounds spaced on three foot centers. The total amount of steel would be only two and one-half pounds per square yard rather than the 15 to 20 pounds per square yard used for continuously reinforced concrete pavements. The main factors that contribute to the lower casts are the decrease in pavement thickness, and decreased amount of steel used. Continuously reinforced concrete pavements use about 20 pounds of conventional steel per square yard at 10 cents a pound. Prestresses pavements use two pounds of prestressing strand in sheathing or conduit per square yard at 22 cents a pound.
