EXPERIENCE WITH CEMENT-BOUND HEAT-INSULATING COURSES

ERFAHRUNGEN MIT ZEMENTGEBUNDENEN WAERMEDAEMMSCHICHTEN

Instead of a frost blanket made of gravelly sand, a styropor concrete heat-insulating roadbase can be laid directly on the subsoil. The material for the styropor is brought to the construction site in a compact form and foamed on site into light-weight aggregate by means of steam. Mixing, transporting and laying of the concrete is carried out with conventional equipment. Recognized methods exist for design for heat insulation and bearing capacity. Large-scale technical manufacture was tried out in 1971 on a 1 km long section of the Turracher Road in Carinthia, Austria. The method is ready for application. /TRRL/
