Influence of the Construction Technology on the Texture and Roughness of Concrete Pavements

Wpływ technologii wykonania nawierzchni betonowych na teksturę i równość

The paper presents studies of different ways of finishing the top surface of concrete pavements. The authors carried out investigations on selected concrete pavement stretches of motorways and expressways in Poland and analysed the variation in roughness and texture depending on the type of pavement structure and base, the temperature, the type of surface finish and the in-service time. It has been found that the construction technology and the type of pavement structure have a bearing on roughness while the top surface finish technology has an effect on texture. The highest pavement smoothness values were measured on the jointless continuously reinforced pavements. It is shown that the texture index considerably depends on the pavement service time. No effect of temperature on the investigated parameters was observed.
