RESURFACING WITH PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE

CONCRETE IS WIDELY USED FOR RESURFACING PAVEMENTS WHICH HAVE PROVED INADEQUATE FOR MODERN TRAFFIC, ESPECIALLY WHERE ADDITIONAL WIDTH AND GREATER STRENGTH ARE REQUIRED. THE RESULTS OF SURVEYS OF CONCRETE RESURFACING IN VARIOUS PARTS OF THE COUNTRY ARE SUMMARIZED, DESCRIBING THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF JOINTS, DIFFERENT THICKNESSES OF RESURFACING AND OF WIDENING, CUSHION COURSES BETWEEN NEW AND OLD SLABS, BASE CONDITION AND AGGREGATE SIZE AND REINFORCEMENT, ON THE SERVICE RENDERED BY THE PAVEMENT. DESIGNS FOR RESURFACING ARE SUGGESTED AND A DISCUSSION OF COST AS COMPARED WITH REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT IS INCLUDED. /AUTHOR/
