17TH ALEMAS TECHNICAL DAY. URBAN ROADS: FULL-DEPTH BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS FOR URBAN ROADS

XVII JORNADA TECNICA ALEMAS. VIAS URBANAS: PAVIMENTOS TOTALMENTE ASFALTICOS (FULL-DEPTH) EN VIAS URBANAS

THIS REPORT SURVEYS THE PRESENT USE OF FULL DEPTH ASPHALT PAVEMENTS IN THE USA. THEY WERE FIRST USED FOR URBAN ROADS, THEN FOR RURAL ROADS. AS REGARDS CONSTRUCTION METHODS, THOSE OF CONVENTIONAL SURFACINGS CAN BE APPLIED. THIS TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION IS QUICKER, DISADVANTAGES FOR THE USERS ARE SMALLER, WORK CAN CONTINUE DURING THE WINTER, EVENNESS IS BETTER, AND CONSTRUCTION COSTS ARE LOWER THAN THOSE OF CONVENTIONAL STRUCTURES. MOISTURE CONTENT PROBLEMS ARE LESS ACUTE THAN IN CONVENTIONAL SURFACINGS LAID ON NON-STABILIZED ROADBASES OR SUBBASES. FOR THE COVERING ABSTRACT, SEE IRRD ABSTRACT NO 106108.
