THE FORMATION OF SHRINKAGE CRACKS IN CEMENT STABILIZATION AND PROTECTION AGAINST CRACKING IN THE SURFACE OF OVERLYING THIN BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS (IN GERMAN)

OBSERVATIONS WHICH HAVE BEEN IN PROGRESS SINCE 1949 HAVE SHOWN THAT SHRINKAGE CRACKS ARE TO BE EXPECTED IN CEMENT-STABILIZED BASE COURSES. THESE CRACKS ALSO OCCUR IN THE THIN BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS WHICH ARE USUAL ON ROADS WHICH CARRY ONLY LIGHT TRAFFIC. TWO METHODS TO PREVENT THIS DEFECT HAVE BEEN SUGGESTED, COMBINATION OF CEMENT STABILIZATION WITH BITUMEN STABILIZATION, AND REINFORCEMENT OF THE BITUMINOUS SURFACING WITH STEEL GRIDS. /FG/RRL/
