VIBRATION AND SHOCK LOAD CAUSED BY ASPHALT PAVERS

TRILLINGS- EN SCHOKBELASTING BIJ ASFALTAFWERKMACHINES

This study report was written as part of the author's postgraduate vocational training at the University of Amsterdam. The load of whole body vibrations and shocks transmitted to the workers on asphalt pavers is studied. Two types of pavers are investigated: (a) the DEMAG DF 110C paver; and (b) the Voegele Super 1800 paver. Other factors studied are the driving speed of the machine during spreading, the degree of precompaction, and the type of road surface (wearing course or basecourse). The variables characterizing the degree of vibration load for the human body, and the physical consequences of vibration load are discussed. The work situation of the workers on the paver is described, followed by the measuring equipment that is used to measure the vibration load and the degree of precompaction. The test setup and the measurement results are discussed. Recommendations are made as to tackle the problem of vibration load at the source, and organizational measures are proposed to reduce vibration load.
