FULL-DEPTH CONSTRUCTION TYPE

ASPHALTOBERBAU

THE AUTHOR DESCRIBES THE INCREASING USE OF A NEW FLEXIBLE PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTION METHOD: FULL-DEPTH CONSTRUCTION, IN WHICH THE STANDARD ROADBASES (PART OF WHICH CONSISTS OF A THICK LAYER OF UNBOUND MATERIALS) IS REPLACED WITH A THINNER BITUMINOUS LAYER. ACCORDING TO THE AUTHOR THIS NEW TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION SHOULD NOT BE INDISCRIMINATELY SELECTED. THE MAIN ADVANTAGE, WHICH IS REDUCED THICKNESS, IS CANCELLED BY THE FACT THAT HIGH-QUALITY, VERY COSTLY AGGREGATES MUST BE USED TO ENSURE THE STRENGTH OF THE THINNER LAYER. FURTHERMORE, BECAUSE A ONE-COURSE SYSTEM RESTS DIRECTLY ON THE SUBGRADE, THE RIGIDITY OF THE PAVEMENT STRUCTURE IS NOT GUARANTEED AND THE SUBGRADE MUST HAVE ADEQUATE BEARING CAPACITY.
