ROAD FILL OF LIGHTWEIGHT CLINKER AND EXPANDED POLYSTYRENE

SUPERLAETT VAEGBANK UPPBYGGD AV CELLPLAST

When a road embankment is built on soft subgrade, the risk for settlements is substantial if the ground is not strengthened by piling or other means. Another solution is to radically reduce the weight of the embankment by the use of extremely light filling materials. This article describes a road embankment built in lightweight clinker and expanded polystyrene with a concrete layer for protection and pressure equalization. /TRRL/
