PROPER VIBRATION OF PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETE PAVEMENTS

A field test was conducted during the construction of a continuously reinforced concrete pavement to study the effect of vibration on portland cement concrete pavements. Research parameters included three vibrator frequencies. One eccentric weight and five paver speeds. Preliminary analysis is indicated that the range of paver speeds studied had no noticeable effect on the densities. No significant effect of vibration on the strength of concrete was found. However, from the paving machine used on this project vibration frequency of 9,000 IPM produced the highest density. The degree of vibration had no significant effect on the entrained air content. The vibration effort studied on this project produced no evidence of segregation.
