AN EFFECTIVE WAY OF EXTENDING THE LIFE OF CONCRETE SURFACINGS

UN MOYEN EFFICACE DE PROLONGER LA VIE DES REVETEMENTS EN BETON

This article deals with the improvement of the long-term behaviour of concrete surfacings by modifying the support conditions of the external edge to which a new slab is added thus increasing the load transfer efficiency. Details are given of the experience gained in this field by the Portland Cement Association, the experience consisting of a widening of the carriageway or the addition of a concrete hard shoulder for emergency stops.
