INTERREGIONAL COMPARISON BETWEEN OIL GRAVEL AND SINGLE SURFACE DRESSING, BASED UPON THE 1977 PAVEMENT INVENTORY

INTERREGIONAL JAEMFOERELSE MELLAN OLJEGRUS OCH ENKIL YTBEHANDLING BASERAD PAA BELAEGGNINGSINVENTERING 1977

This report deals with a comparison of oil gravel (og) and single layer surface dressing (yl) between the northern, central and southern parts of Sweden. Pavement life, wear and deformation were studied, each region being treated separately. Pavement life was found to be superior in southern Sweden and the life of yl was found to be a few years longer than og. Og showed a decrease in deformation when moving from north to south, whereas yl showed no such variation. A comparison of og and yl in the traffic class 500-20000 adt showed that deformation had the dominating influence upon failure of og, whereas with yl wear was the dominating factor.
