COMPACTION OF BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS

LE COMPACTAGE DES REVETEMENTS BITUMINEUX

This article presents an overall study of the problem of the compaction of bituminous surfacings. It aims at facilitating the application of theoretical principles to practical problems with a view to obtaining optimum compaction taking into account various constraints such as availability of funds, materials, equipment, labour, and environmental conditions. The article is divided into six-parts: definition; aims; factors influencing compaction: thickness of the layers to be compacted, aptitude of the mixture to compaction, rolling equipment, air temperature and temperature of the surface to be covered, rolling temperature, compaction method; compaction due to traffic; typical example of satisfactory compaction; references on the subject. /TRRL/
