COMPACTION OF BITUMINOUS MIXTURES OF TYPE 3 BY MEANS OF VIBRATING ROLLERS

COMPACTAGE D'ENROBES TYPE III AU MOYEN DE ROULEAUX VIBRANTS

THE AUTHOR DESCRIBES THE MIX-DESIGN OF THE BELGIAN BITUMINOUS MIXTURES OF TYPE 3 ACCORDING TO SPECIFICATIONS TYPE 108. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF THE CONSTRUCTION MACHINERY USED AND OF A TEST PROCEDURE FOR THE VIBRATING ROLLER. THE VIBRATING ROLLER AND CONVENTIONAL ROLLERS WERE USED ALTERNATELY, AND A NUCLEO DENSITOMETER WAS UTILIZED TO CONDUCT A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF THE STATE OF COMPACTION. RESULTS OF THE CALCULATION OF VOIDS ON CORE SAMPLES ARE PRESENTED TOGETHER WITH SOME CONCLUSIONS ON SURFACE ASPECT AND EVENNESS OF SUBLAYERS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE PERFORMANCE OBTAINED WITH THE VIBRATING ROLLER IS LOWER THAN THAT OBTAINED WITH CONVENTIONAL COMPACTING EQUIPMENT.
