SPREADING OF COATED CHIPPINGS ON BITUMINOUS SURFACINGS OF THE FRENCH SEMI-GRANULAR TYPE

IE CLOUTAGE DES REVETEMENTS HYDROCARBONES DE TYPE FRANCAIS SEMI-GRENU

The method of spreading hard coated chippings on the surface of a bituminous layer immediately after application of the latter is defined. The technique used in France (which includes the rugochape process) is described in this article; it is a strict application of the technique described above, and it stresses the need of A satisfactorily-laid supporting bituminous layer, which can carry heavy traffic of 13 tonne-axle load vehicles. Based on the experience obtained from heavily trafficked roads over the last few years and the present knowledge on skidding, the characteristics, and behaviour of this type of surfacing are discussed. /TRRL/
