BRICK ROAD EXPERIMENTS IN OHIO

OBSERVATIONS ARE PRESENTED ON THE CONDITION AFTER TWO YEARS' SERVICE OF AN EXPERIMENTAL BRICK ROAD BUILT IN OHIO IN 1933. THE PROJECT IS DIVIDED INTO FOUR GENERAL TYPES: MONOLITHIC, SEMI-MONOLITHIC, GROUT FILLED ON GRANULATED SLAG CONDITION AND BITUMINOUS FILLED. THERE ARE 21 SELECTIONS AND SUBSECTIONS. NO DEFECTS HAVE BEEN NOTED IN THE MONOLITHIC TYPE. THE SEMI-MONOLITHIC AND GROUT FILLED SECTIONS HAVE SUFFERED BECAUSE OF POOR ALIGNMENT OF AN EXUDING TYPE OF EXPANSION JOINT IN THE TOP AND BASE COURSES. ALSO THE 100 FT JOINT SPACING IN THESE SECTIONS HAS PROVED TO BE TOO LARGE. THE BITUMINOUS FILLED SECTIONS FROM WHICH THE EXCESS FILLER WAS REMOVED ARE NOW 10 TO 25 PERCENT COVERED BY FILLER EXUDED FROM THE JOINTS. A RECENTLY COMPLETED PROJECT UPON WHICH 19 DIFFERENT FILLRS WERE USED FOR EXPERIMENTAL PURPOSES IS ALSO DESCRIBED. /AUTHOR/
