DAMAGE TO PAVEMENT CONSTRUCTIONS DUE TO (LASTING) DRYNESS. WORKING DAYS ON ROAD ENGINEERING 1990, PROCEEDINGS OF A CONFERENCE HELD IN EDE, THE NETHERLANDS, MAY 9-10, 1990. PART 1

SCHADE AAN WEGVERHARDINGEN DOOR (LANGDURIGE) DROOGTE

Due to periods of lasting dryness cracks can spring up in pavement constructions - especially in rural roads. In the pavement constructions stresses arise that can no longer be dealt with so cracking develops. A number of factors - often in combination with each other - is responsible for these stresses. A comparison of the costs of four measures to restore the damage produces the following conclusion: to restore pavement damage caused by dryness, the character of the maintenance measurements, i.e., the level of investment, must be attuned to the character and the extent of the damage and the function of the road. It is also advised that the possibility of future cracking be taken into account at the project design stage. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 836802. (TRRL)
