FIBROUS CONCRETE OVERLAY-TEXAS TEST SECTION

The inspection (in April 1974) is reported of a 6-1/2 month old experimental fibrous concrete overlay on I-10. A set of photographs made during the inspection are presented here. The original CRCP which was overlaid by the fibrous concrete was not repaired prior to placing the overlay and no bond breaker was used between the two concretes. The photographs reveal transverse cracking reflected from the damaged CRCP underneath. The photographs also show evidence of fiber balls in the surface of the pavement.
