dc.description.abstractInterlocking Concrete Pavements also known as block pavements are one of the integral parts of the pavement system in Europe. The use of ICP slowly extended to other countries including North America. As the usage increased the need for more scientific research was developed which resulted in the study of ICP design and analysis methods, construction practices and materials specifications. This thesis presents a research project involving the design, construction, instrumentation, performance modeling and other field tests of eight ICP crosswalks with four different design assemblies. The research projects were constructed at the Centre for Pavement and Transportation Technology (CPATT) Test Track and at the University of Waterloo Ring Road. Each of the test sections is instrumented with structural and environmental sensors of sensors to monitor the pavement performance under heavy truck traffic, typical municipal loadings and to quantify environmental effects. A database is generated and the measured stress, strain, temperature and moisture measurements are analysed to evaluate the expected long-term performance of the structural components of ICP crosswalk designs.en
