CRCP Evaluation and Forensic Studies

Roberto Treviño, P.E.


The TxDOT - Pavement Analysis and Design Branch provides technical assistance to the 25 TxDOT Districts with evaluations of pavement distresses and premature pavement failures. This Branch utilizes non-destructive equipment such as air-launched Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), ground-coupled GPR, Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD), Total Pavement Acceptance Device (TPAD), MIRA, LiDAR, and Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP), to investigate the cause of the distresses. This presentation will discuss two case studies to explain an approach on how to use non-destructive tools to conduct pavement forensic investigations involving continuously reinforced concrete pavements.  

Robert Trevino is the Pavement Analysis & Design Branch Manager at TxDOT. In this position, he oversees all activities related to district support for pavement design, forensic investigations, non-destructive testing, super-heavy loads, and load zoning. Robert began his career with TxDOT in 2010 as an intern for the Pharr District. He then joined the Corpus Christi District, where he rotated through the lab, construction, and design sections. He then served in various roles including Materials and Pavement Engineer, Assistant Area Engineer, and District Construction Engineer. He earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University – Kingsville.
