USE OF VIBRATORY EQUIPMENT TO COMPACT BITUMINOUS MIXTURES /IN GERMAN/

COMPACTION TESTS CARRIED OUT ON GERMAN MAIN ROADS AND SPECIAL TEST ROADS SHOWED THAT VIBRATORY ROLLERS COULD BE SUCCESSFULLY USED EVEN ON THICK BITUMINOUS ROADBASES, AS THE QUALITY AND DEPTH OF COMPACTION OBTAINED WITH THEM IS AT LEAST AS GOOD AS THAT OBTAINED WITH NORMAL STATIC ROLLERS. DESTRUCTION OF THE GRAINS OF LOCAL GRAVELS WAS NO WORSE THAN WITH STATIC ROLLER COMPACTION. IT WAS HOWEVER RECOMMENDED THAT ONLY HEAVY VIBRATORY ROLLERS SHOULD BE USED AS LIGHTWEIGHT ONES ARE NOT AS EFFICIENT, EVEN ON THIN ROADBASES. /FG/RRL/
