LA TECHNIQUE DU BETON GOUJONNE ET DU BETON ARME CONTINU EN BELGIQUE

THE AUTHOR DESCRIBES THE EVOLUTION IN THE TECHNIQUES BY EXAMINING HIGHWAYS AND MOTORWAYS OPERATED BY THE GOVERNMENT IN BELGIUM. HE RECOMMENDS CONTINUOUS REINFORCED SURFACINGS FOR MOTORWAYS AND UNREINFORCED DOWELLED SURFACINGS FOR ROADS OPERATED BY THE GOVERNMENT. ATTENTION IS DRAWN TO THE NECESSITY OF BUILDING HIGH-QUALITY FOUNDATIONS (LEAN CONCRETE WITH OR WITHOUT INTERMEDIARY BITUMINOUS LAYER) ESSENTIAL BECAUSE OF THE CLIMATE IN BELGIUM WHERE ANNUAL RAINFALL CAN REACH 80 CM TO 1 M AND BECAUSE OF THEORETICAL AXLE LOADS OF 13 METRIC TONNES.
