AMSTERDAM IS FIRST IN CONSTRUCTING A CONTINUOUSLY REINFORCED CONCRETE PAVEMENT WITH A SLIP-FORM PAVER

AMSTERDAM LEGT-ALS ERESTE-EEN DOORGAAND-GEWAPENDE BETONVERHARDING AAN MET EEN SLIPFORMPAVER

A continually reinforced concrete pavement, total area 21,000 sq. m, thickness 18cm, was constructed on a section of a dual-carriageway road. The width of each carriageway is 7.50m. On a roadbase of sand cement, thickness 20cm, a 5cm basecourse of gravel-sand asphalt was laid in order to improve the eveness of the base and to obtain a uniform thickness of the concrete layer. The reinforcement, composed of B50 steel bars, diameter 16mm, was assembled on the site. The transverse bars were placed at an angle of 60deg. with the alignment. The percentage of reinforcement is 0.75. The concrete was laid by means of a slip-form paver. Details of the construction method are described and some related aspects of concrete technology are discussed. It is concluded that the experimental use of a slip-form paver for this purpose has been successful.
