REINFORCING BITUMINOUS LAYERS WITH STRUCTOFORS

IN RECENT YEARS A POLYESTER REINFORCEMENT FOR ASPHALT HAS BEEN DEVELOPED, WHICH CONSISTS OF CONTINUOUS FILAMENTS. A STRUCTOFORS BUNDLE, FOR INSTANCE, CONTAINS 2,000 ELEMENTARY WIRES. THE MATERIAL HAS A MELTING POINT OF 255 DEGREES C, A TENSILE STRENGTH OF 100 KGF/MM2, A DYNAMIC ELASTICITY MODULUS OF 1,600 KGF/MM2 AND A SHRINKAGE AT 160 DEGREES C OF 3.5%. STRUCTOFORS CAN BE APPLIED WHERE SLOW AND CONSIDERABLE MOVEMENTS ARE INVOLVED, E.G. IN BRIDGES, CONCRETE SLABS,
