CONSTRUCTION OF RIGID PAVEMENTS

EXECUTION DES CHAUSSEES EN BETON DE CIMENT

The author reviews changes in the construction techniques for rigid pavements, in particular the techniques used recently on construction sites in France. A study is made of the ingredients (cement, aggregates, admixtures) and of mix-design, manufacture and laying techniques from the point of view of the behaviour of the edges of the pavement, cracking and screeding and from that of long-term behaviour of the pavement (mechanical strength and resistance to wear). Maintenance and strengthening problems, and rigid pavement design, methods in use in other countries are briefly discussed. /TRRL/
