SOME CONSIDERATIONS OF CONCRETE ROADS IN HOLLAND (IN GERMAN)

THE AUTHOR DEALS WITH SOURCES OF DAMAGE IN CONCRETE PAVEMENTS AND DESCRIBES THE LATEST DESIGN DEVELOPED IN COOPERATION WITH THE STATE ROAD LABORATORY (NETHERLANDS). THE SUCCESSIVE STEPS ARE: (1) SUBGRADE CONSISTING OF A GOOD QUALITY SAND LAYER IS UNIFORMLY COMPACTED OVER THE ENTIRE WIDTH OF THE ROADBED, (2) THE TOP 15 CM. OF THIS SAND LAYER IS STABILIZED WITH CEMENT, (3) THE STABILIZED SAND LAYER IS GIVEN A COAT OF BITUMEN EMULSION, (4) THIS STABILIZED SAND LAYER SERVES AS BASE FOR A 23-CM. THICK CONCRETE SLAB LAID PREFERABLY BETWEEN MAY 15 AND SEPTEMBER 15, SINCE EXPANSION JOINTS CAN BE OMITTED DURING THIS PERIOD, (5) STABILIZATION IS CARRIED OUT OVER A WIDTH OF 10.60 M., I.E., WIDER THAN THE ROADBED, AND (6) THE TRAFFIC COURSE CONSISTS OF TWO 15-CM. THICK STABILIZED SAND-CEMENT LAYERS SEPARATED BY AN 8-CM. LAYER OF SAND
