Ultra-Thin Whitetopping (UTW) is a technology to construct 50-100 mm thick cement concrete overlay on distressed asphalt pavement as a rehabilitation technique. There were twelve conventional, ultra-thin and thin whitetopping overlay projects built in India from 2003 to 2011 but to date, there has been no specific follow-up regarding their performance. Hence, there is a need to study performance evaluation of UTW for Indian traffic and climatic conditions by using suitable technique. In this study, performance evaluation of UTW is presented by conducting Benkelman Beam Deflection test (BBD) as per guidelines given in IRC: 81-1997. This paper discusses about surface deflection at three critical load positions in a panel having age of two years and the Load Transfer Efficiency (LTE) at the transverse joints of 100mm thick in-service UTW overlay constructed in Pune city, Maharashtra State, India by carrying out the non-destructive test of Benkelman Beam for its performance evaluation subjected to Indian traffic and climatic conditions.
