TESTS ON A HEAVY SINGLE-WHEELED VIBRATING ROLLER FOR THE COMPACTION OF A GRAVEL-SLAG ROADBASE

ESSAIS D'UN ROULEAU VIBRANT MONOBILLE LOURD POUR LE COMPACTAGE D'UNE COUCHE DE BASE EN GRAVE-LAITER

Results are given of compaction tests on gravel-slag carried out with a single-wheeled vibrating roller at the road testing centre in rouen. The object of this study was not to compare the performance of this type of roller with that of the types currently used, but only to define the operational parameters of the roller. Results show that the efficiency of the roller in depth is better at resonance frequency than at the maximum permitted frequency. High densities can be obtained if the number of passes is between 6 and 14. /TRRL/
