USE OF WASTE AND BY-PRODUCTS IN ROAD CONSTRUCTION

REUTILISATION DE DECHETS ET SOUS-PRODUITS EN TECHNIQUE ROUTIERE

After recalling the now conventional use of by-products such as slag, fly-ash and coal shale, the author reviews the research on various other by-products (muds, iron sulphate, rubber, phosphogypsum, sulphur, plastic materials). (TRRL) However, tests during construction should also be carried out in order to check the quality of in situ materials and workmanship. Monitoring equipment described in this paper is generally high-output equipment: the quantity and diversity of data recorded, e.g. Deflection, bond, evenness measurements are analysed by modern electronic equipment for collection and processing. Due to periodic road network monitoring, highway authorities can obtain indispensable data. Such data are particularly useful and directly usable, for rational management of the network and within the scope of improving the policy of strengthening and maintenance of pavements.
